Apoquel Reduction Programme - Home-cooked
This programme is designed to help dogs on Apoquel.
It is based on successfully helping may thousands of dogs in clinical veterinary practice over the last 35+ years.
It involves switching to a home-cooked diet and the stepwise introduction of a series of natural supplements and remedies which gradually help the immune system become more balanced and less reactive to environmental and dietary allergens (typically over 3-6 months).
When this is successful, itching becomes less intense, the skin and coat improve, and there is less need for medication with Apoquel (or other immunosuppressive drugs, such as steroids, Cytopoint, Atopica and other drugs).
Where itching is long-standing and / or severe however, it can take 9 months or longer for a significant improvement to be seen. And for those pets with a strong genetic predisposition to react severely to many different allergens, some level of medication may always be required.
