Customer Question
My dog has 17...

My dog has 17 grass allergies and the vet put her on Apooel and an Allergenic extract drops twice day plus prescription dog food. She is loosing hair, scaps are bleeding and my vet said she can no longer do anything. I even tried contacting a dermatologist but the doctors are 300 miles away. What can I do? Seeing my furry baby like this is painful..

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Maggie Mae has been seeing this Vet for close to 2 years. She has been on an antibiotic

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Maggie Mae is being treated for allergies with Apoquel, but she is still losing hair and bleeding from scabs. I am sorry to hear about these problems you are experiencing. I need to get a little more information so I can give you the best guidance.

1. Can you please tell me where the scabs are primarily located (i.e. abdomen, chest, tail base, etc.)?

2. Is Maggie Mae still itching/licking excessively?

3. How long has Maggie Mae been taking the Apoquel? Twice daily or once daily?
