Yeh i did thanks but it's Canadian brand and shipping to UK will be expensive.

Thanks again for all your help.

Oh I didn’t realize it’s Canadian brand, the one you linked should be good.

Try to find the bovine Colostrum and immunity Mushrooms from Four Leaf Rover.


No problem, I’m happy to help😊


Keep us updated

All our pups shed more with increased temps...especially after a bath.
As far as Apoquel is concerned, we have given it short-term to many(less than 50) of the rescues we've taken in with no signs of adverse reaction. Only one was on it long term and he(my personal dog) was an extreme case. Special diet, allergy shots, Apoquel worked for him for many years. He passed at 10. This is not to say that I haven't heard of adverse reactions from it...I have! But I think that some dogs tolerate it and some do not. You should be aware and on the look out for undesirable side-effects. Vets are not so quick to warn about side effects from medications they sell for profit. That, and the canine drug reps will insist that there are ZERO side effects...which is BS.

I understand thank you. There are so many experienced owners on here for great advice, I’m so glad I joined.
as for Peppa, she has shown no side effects yet and she has been on Apoquel for about 2 months now. The only minor things are the one small wart on her back leg and tiny patches of very minor hair loss on the under side. It’s hard to diagnose whether this was caused by Apoquel or just seasonal issue right now because we are experiencing intense heat waves here in the UK.
Either way I’m trying out the remedies that Bulldog2001 recommended because if they work and are much safer, then there’s no point in risking it with Apoquel right?

Like the article stated, the viral warts are a side effect of the apoquel.


Keep me updated on how the supplements are working😊

Just got the immunity organic mushroom mix today. I tested a pinch on my finger to see if she’ll lick. Took a while but she did end up licking it.
How do you give it to your dogs? If I need to is it okay to just add it to her food?
in terms of dosage I believe it’s a tsp a day?

I put the powder on their food once a day, give the recommended amount it says on the jar for her weight once a day on food.

Ok thanks. I gave her 1 tsp with her food just now because she's 50lbs.
I have the quercetin but just waiting on the bovine colostrum to be delivered so i can start her on those together.

Awesome, you can start her on the quercetin anytime so it can start to take effect while you wait for the bovine Colostrum, it’s up to you. The sooner off apoquel the better. But thankfully she is getting the immune boost now😊👍

Keep me updated!

Ok, so it’s best to give her 1 dose of Apoquel in the morning and 1 dose of quercetin in the evening for a few days to see how she gets on? If she doesn’t itch then switch her fully onto quercetin.
However if she starts itching again, then do I up the quercetin dosage?

Yes that’s what I did, 1 apoquel in the morning and 1 Quercetin. Make sure she is getting the full dose of Quercetin before taking her off apoquel and as long as she isn’t super itchy, try her without Apoquel.

I would wait a few days before taking her off apoquel, and keep giving the Quercetin.

You shouldn’t need to give more Quercetin than the recommended 250-500 mg(that’s for her weight).

So apoquel in the morning and 500 mg of Quercetin at night. See how she is for a few days, if no itch, or very minimal, then try her without the apoquel.

If she is more itchy after no apoquel, try her with 1/2 the 1 tablet of apoquel and the 500mg of Quercetin. If she does good for a few days, try the 1/4 of a apoquel, then after that try the NO apoquel and only Quercetin and the mushrooms you started her on(keep her on that, it’s safe with Quercetin and apoquel and same goes for bovine Colostrum when you get it).

Keep me updated

It's evening here so this morning she had her usual 1 Apoquel. And now with her dinner, i gave her 1 quercetin (250mg per capsule). But i should have given her 2 quercetin because she can take both at the same time.
We'll see how she is and maybe increase quercetin tomorrow evening.
