Severe Allergies in 10 Year Old Boxer - Seeking Remedies
My girl has been on apoquel for severe itching/scratching for about 5-7 years .We try to only give her a half pill with 2 meals . We have had extensive allergy tests done on her to no avail. So in trying to give her relief, we pay approximately $90 every 10 days for freeze dried anti allergy food mixture which she seems to like but it doesn't relieve her discomfort. A side effect of the apoquel is skin growths of which she has a couple but now another large soft tumor on her belly has me concerned. She did have an open cyst that was turning black on her back and I used iodine and it cleared up almost immediatley. I am going to use the iodine again on this growth but am wondering if I should include castor oil. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
