Have you tried an elimination diet? Cut out one thing for a week at a time and see what happens. I would start with wheat. It's in virtually everything. Check labels for wheat, malt, etc. Wheat is very well known to cause dermatitis and itching. And it is so sneaky how it's in just about every ingredient list nowadays from pet food, to sauces, to shampoos, soaps, drinks etc.

There is a pretty extensive list here:

Default Update: Apoquel!!

With allergy season here, I just wanted to update everyone on Midgie's progress. With nothing short of Wonderful, I am totally pleased with Apoquel and highly recommend it. Although it doesn't prevent all symptoms 100%, she is a totally different, happy baby. It's been about 2 years taking 1/2 a pill a day. She still rubs her eyes here and there and scratching is at a minimum. As some of the old members know the struggle I've had over the years that's brought me to tears and all the things that I've tried putting Midgie through so much agony and pain trying to find relief; all I can say is that I wish I would have come across this so much sooner. She's not up all night scratching any more. Life has been very busy and I have missed being on here reading posts. It's a wonderful feeling now when I don't have to take her to the vet every other week for allergies. This little pill has saved me so much money and all though my vet is pretty far, I have them mail me Midgie's refills.
