    I had 3 dogs on apoquel. The first one had allergies so bad he could barely function...he was a lab mix. It was a miracle for him. He was on it a year before he passed...he was pretty old. Then I had my Boston Terrier and Yorkie on it. Both on it for around a year. It messed up their immune systems bad. Both ended up getting fungal infections, ear infections, hair loss, a bloated look to bellies and stomach issues. It does take care of allergies, just use it sparingly. My dogs were on it everyday for almost a year...not good. I will always wonder if it contributed to the death of my Lab...probably so.

    Apoquel has been a life-saver for Bella, just like it's been for Abbey. Bella had gotten to the point where she would scratch constantly. It was all she did. She was miserable. Now, she's normal again. I give her 1/2 pill every day, which works most of the time. (I was doing one whole pill per day for a short while.)

    I know the vet loves her enough to not risk her life. (They're the ones who told me to stop giving her one whole pill a day.)

    Those side-effects are scary as hell, so I will monitor her. I'm very aware, though, that all meds (dog and human) have horrible side-effects as worst-case situations.

    Thanks for the info. It's good to be aware.

    Punky, you are NOT a bad parent. You love your dogs, that's obvious. If you're bad, I'm bad...and I'm not bad. LOL!
