We have a 2 year old blue nose who has really bad allergies. Shes been on apoquel for over an year now and its starting to not effect her anymore. Its upsetting to see her itch so much, my brother gave up, the vets only want the money they dont want to find a cure. I buy the top foods, only feed her raw beef mixed in with her cereal and eggs, i give her 6,7 fish oil capsules daily with her meal. Am i missing something? Anybody who has any feedback please let me know, Or anyone who knows any holistic vets i will drive to them i am in the north east area, any suggestions will help. I am willing to pay if somebody can help her in a natural way.

It's either environmental, or diet. Prey Model Raw gives you full control of her diet. She should also have her on a good probiotic and local bee pollen as well. You need to boost her immune system to help combat the allergens.

You say meat and cereal? Why cereal? Stick with a premium meat diet, Stella and Chewys, OC Raw Dog, Steve's, Primal.
It's best to rotate at least 4 different proteins, but go slow, see if she has reactions to any. Chicken and beef tend to be the most common allergens. Try fish or novel meats first...rabbit, venison, bison, etc.

My first boy was a blue brindle and had same symptoms. I gave baths twice a week in Chlorhexidine solution 2oz per gal of water. Rinse and dry good. I’m sure all dogs react differently, but Taste of the Wild pacific stream would good for him. I gave home Benadryl 1mg pp at 90lbs I gave him 3 25mg pills per dose. Do you have the loose still issue? That annoyed the heck out of me.

I would try a canine dermatologist (specialist - get a referral from your vet).
And be aware that some dogs can have severe allergies like that and never really get cured or get "better". I have known of dogs whose allergies were so severe and the dog was so miserable that they had to be put down.

My 12-year-old blue nose girl had really bad allergies when I got her stinky blisters that formed mostly on her back. Instead of Apoquel I’m giving her cetirizine that the doctor approved. I can give it to her 12 hours apart and it does not make her sleepy. We have a refill store here with basic cosmetic soaps creams etc. They have a pH balanced non-scented soap shampoo for dogs that I added essential oils to heal sores and it worked. I also have to wash my girl twice a week or she gets really itchy . She’s allergic to shellfish and fish products so it’s always a challenge and I add meat and vegetables chopped up to her kibble. The soap really worked well on her
