What Doesn’t Kill the Writer…

Posted on April 4, 2019 by Ontyre Passages
Like other writers I draw from many influences and experiences, good and bad. This past Tuesday I had my bi-annual visit with my pulmonologist. He’s done the impossible, my lung function steady for two years now (following seven years of medical ineptitude by different doctors). My lung function might only be 60-65% of normal, but I’m grateful for what I have. Another pulmonary visit. Photo: CA Hawthorne
Lung function aside, seven years ago initiated a different, more troubling tale…
When I was hospitalized in May, 2010 I was placed on a high dosage of Prednisone. The drug helped saved my life, keeping my lungs working when they wanted to quit. After, I was left at that dosage. So slow that I didn’t recognize the changes, the drug altered my perceptions of reality.
*This doesn’t happen to everyone, of course, but it’s my reaction that matters here.
At mid summer I was rushed to the ER suffering manic episodes. I’d weep, laugh hysterically, hallucinate, lose the ability to communicate, and so on…

Girl, 19, who had her ostomy bag removed but needed it refitted says it’s now her favorite feature

Sofia Ali, 19, from Toronto, Canada, had to be fitted with an ostomy bag in October 2016. She had it removed a year later, but a leak in her intestines caused her to need to have the bag refitted.

Thanks for the kind thoughts and suggestions. Yes, he has been to the Regional Veterinary Referral Center in Springfield, and I do like the care they provide in general. But they referred us to another place, as the surgeons looked at him and didn’t have much to say other than to keep him off the hardwood as much as possible.
So we took him here as referred:
THE SPINE CENTER AT VOSM | NEUROLOGY*|*VOSM
This place is like the Cleveland or Mayo Clinic for dogs. They have a few very good vets who can consult and test/diagnose in one stop, which is good because its in the middle of nowhere for us northern VA folks.
He got a full set of X rays and they thought he might have a herniated spinal chord based on the look of the spine, and because his back legs worked better than his front. He did not react 100 percent as he should have to the testing the Dr. did by repositioning his legs. So they thought it was neurological. He went back for a very expensive MRI the next week (just last week from this post).
That didn’t show anything unusual in his brain or upper spine, and they did take a spinal tap and we don’t have the results of that yet. But they put him on steroids (prednisone) and he had pain meds already from the referral center.
In the week since he went back, he seems to be deteriorating further, with respect to his ability to walk. Its very sad to see and hard to deal with, but we have to carry him to the pee pad and water and food. He has not much quality of life it seems. Some days are better than others, but a dog HAS to be able to get around, and he is having more and more trouble doing that. We have yoga mats all around that do help him move around, but his mobility is really bad now. I tried to walk him today outside since it was so nice, and he was able to pee and poop but I carried him almost the whole time.

Living kidney donor and recipient perspectives on their relationship: longitudinal semi-structured interviews

Living kidney donor and recipient perspectives on their relationship: longitudinal semi-structured interviews

Analytical decision making to mitigate regret Avoiding anticipated regret and maintaining control Some participants took into account tension, decisional regret and feelings of guilt when making decisions about donating or accepting a kidney. Recipients refused to accept donations from family members who they anticipated would use it against them in the future to ‘control situations’ such as to win arguments, to make them change behaviours (eg, drinking alcohol) or in a potential divorce settlement. Some donors did not want to regret donating and therefore did not want to donate to recipients who they perceived had either ‘contributed to [their] own kidney problems’ (eg, through excessive drinking) or had disappointed or hurt them as they did not ‘trust them to look after such a gift’. Removing emotional impulsivity To preserve the stability of their relationship, some participants approached their decision pragmatically. Some donor–recipient pairs communicated about all possible relationship consequences, including divorce, to ensure they were able to accept these risks. One donor completed his work-up without the knowledge of the recipient and then communicated his offer of donation via email to allow the recipient ‘a chance to absorb it’ so they would not feel obligated to respond immediately. The donor outlined a logical case for why he should be the donor and emphasised that the offer was ‘without strings’ to minimise potential disruption to their relationship. Donation as enacting familial responsibility for care Some donors viewed donation as a ‘continuation of the nurturing process’ for their family member, and this was intensified in mothers and wives. Some felt somewhat at fault for their recipient’s illness and felt compelled to donate. One mother felt ‘a little bit responsible [for her son’s kidney disease] that we didn’t have him checked out.’ Another donor reported that their clinician went ‘absolutely ballistic’ at her for not knowing that her spouse had kidney failure (prior to diagnosis). Some donors believed they would endure unbearable guilt if they did not take care of their family by donating a kidney. Strengthened interpersonal ties Gaining a deeper appreciation among family members While some participants believed their relationship did not change posttransplant, others felt they developed an intangible ‘special bond’ and became closer through increased contact. Spousal dyads felt they had ‘seen the worst and best bits’ of each other through the ‘difficult process’ of donation and become stronger and more honest with each other. Some spousal dyads viewed the commitment of donation akin to marriage and became more aware of how their partner ‘treasured them’. Some donors felt that their recipient’s family members displayed a ‘warmer attitude’ and gratitude towards them. Stronger empathy for each other Some donors and recipients became more focused on each other’s well-being than their own. For some donors, the clinical workup was their first experience of undergoing medical tests and waiting in hospitals and they gained a newfound appreciation of the discomfort, uncertainty and inconvenience their recipient had experienced in hospital. Recipients viewed their donor as ‘brave’ but held concerns about their donor’s health (eg, kidney function, fatigue and potential cancers). Improving social participation Spousal pairs anticipated that recipients would have increased energy to participate in activities after transplant, giving them ‘a better life together’. They looked forward to being able to do activities together including travelling, walking, bike riding, going to the beach and dancing. For some pairs, these expectations were realised and they felt ‘happier’ and ‘stronger’ as a couple. Instability of relational impacts Anger and aggression threatening dynamics Both donors and recipients worried about the potential impact of steroid medication (in particular, prednisone) on the recipient’s ‘personality’ and how this could affect their relationship. Recipients were concerned that they ‘would not be the same person’ on medication, and they may become angry, depressed, ‘grumpy and moody’ towards their partner. One spousal donor was worried that she may leave her recipient if ‘he ends up too difficult to live with’. After the transplant, donors felt stressed in having to cope with the anger and irritability experienced by their recipient—‘like waiting for a ticking time bomb to go off’. Unanticipated stress and emotional lability The upcoming transplant was a priority and consumed the time and energy of some spousal pairs who experienced increased tension and arguments, which they attributed to the stress of the donation process (eg, uncertainty regarding donor eligibility and waiting for transplant confirmation) and upcoming surgery. After donation, some recipients experienced exaggerated changes in mood and/or a reoccurrence of previous mental health disorders (including depression and bipolar disorders), which they believed were due to the stress, adjustment and steroids, and which affected their relationship. Triggering familial tension For some, in particular parent-to-child dyads, the donation became a source of stress in their relationships with other family members. Recipients experienced ‘snide comments’ from and arguments with other family members (eg, sibling, other parent or parent-in-law) who did not agree or were concerned for the donor. Such recipients felt this compounded their feelings of guilt and worry about the transplant. Donors and recipients also noted friction in their relationships with other family members who did not offer to donate. Some donors believed the donation triggered arguments within the extended family who challenged the donor’s motives and instigated family discussion of the Will of the recipient, especially in blended families. Renegotiating social roles Unexpected continuation of caregiving responsibilities Spousal donors expected their role as a ‘caregiver’ to diminish posttransplant. For some donors whose recipient had complications and side effects (eg, BK virus, diabetes), they were disappointed in having to still bear caregiving responsibilities. They described recovery as a ‘rollercoaster’ which required them to exercise tolerance and patience towards their recipient. Inability to relinquish the caregiving role Some spousal recipients felt their donors wanted to continue caring for them posttransplant and were worried about hurting their donor’s feelings by informing them that they no longer required their assistance such as being driven to attend follow-up clinic. One spousal donor was offended when their recipient began to do activities alone (eg, shopping and exercise), which they had normally done together. Disappointment with unfulfilled renewal of intimacy Some spousal pairs eagerly anticipated improved physical affection and intimacy posttransplant, with one donor citing this as the primary reason for her donation. Recipients reported that clinicians advised them that increased libido was a side effect of steroid medication. However, some recipients were afraid to have intercourse while on immunosuppressants as this could result in urinary tract infections. For other recipients, intercourse was painful, or they did not experience increased libido. Some recipients did experience an increased libido but became frustrated when this was not matched by a similar change in their spousal donor. Recipients were reluctant to discuss their sexual concerns with their clinicians as they believed this would be regarded as peripheral to the primary focus on their health. Dissatisfaction over discrepant energy levels In some spousal pairs, the recipient’s vitality increased and surpassed that of their donor, shifting the relationship dynamic and causing relationship tension as the recipient wanted to engage in activities (eg, running, dancing and socialising) they had enjoyed prior to becoming unwell and to lead a more fast-paced and active lifestyle than their partner. Conversely, when recipients did not experience their expected ‘boost’ in vigour, donors felt disappointed and frustrated that they were unable to engage in their desired shared lifestyle. Guilt over unmet expectations Before the transplant, recipients worried that if their desired physical, psychological and social improvements were not achieved after the operation, they may feel regret and be blamed by others for accepting the kidney donation. Some recipients, despite having a successful transplant, did not feel ‘stronger and better’, often due to comorbidities, for example, diabetes. Such recipients felt they had failed their donors, were ‘wasting’ their donor’s kidney and efforts, and worried they would be blamed by their donor or other family members. Inevitability of the gift relationship Vague and transient indebtedness Recipients were ‘eternally grateful’ to their donor and felt indebted to them; however, this was ‘a subconscious thing’ and ‘not a real issue’ and diminished over time. They believed the best way to show their appreciation was to look after their health and verbally thank the donor. Expectation of reciprocity Some spousal donors felt disgruntled that their recipient was not more openly appreciative of them. This mainly occurred when the donor was frustrated with their recipient, for example, for not supporting them in a family argument, not paying for something, or if they believed they were not making an effort in their relationship. However, donors felt uneasy and guilty about having such thoughts. Transferring kidney ownership Donors were conscious that the imbalance of the one-way gift had the potential to cause unease in their relationship and did not want their recipient to feel guilty. They conceptualised the kidney as a gift and were careful about how they discussed the kidney in front of the recipient and encouraged their recipient to participate in physical activities and not to be overly cautious. Donors and recipients recalled being told by clinicians ‘once it’s out of you it’s not yours anymore’. While some donors were initially anxious about the recipient’s health and wanted to ‘wrap them in cotton wool’, this lessened over time; they emphasised they had donated so their recipient could live life to the full. Discussion For donors and recipients, improved and strengthened relationships after living kidney donor transplantation were marked by increased closeness and appreciation of each other, stronger empathy, more frequent contact and enhanced quality of life as a pair. At the same time, some dyads were confronted with conflict and tension triggered or exacerbated by behavioural and emotional changes (anger, aggression, alterations in mood in recipients related to steroid use), and disappointment with unfulfilled expectations of recovery of health, re-establishing roles and renewal of intimacy. Some donors and recipients were aware of potential relational strains such as anticipated guilt and indebtedness of the recipient and changes in relationship dynamics because of the one-sided ‘gift relationship’, and donors emphasised that recipients should not feel any obligation or be overly cautious. There were differences in the expectations and experiences of spousal dyads when compared with parent–child and sibling pairs. Spousal pairs expected that the donation/transplant would enhance overall quality of life as a couple, which is in accordance with previous research 9 11 24 and reflected by the recent trend in donor assessment moving away from solely considering the risks to the donor and benefits to the recipient at an individual level, towards a decision-making model that combines risks and benefits for ‘interdependent donors’ (donors residing in the same household as their recipient). 25 For some donors, enhanced combined quality of life was a key motivation for donating a kidney, which may explain why spousal couples in our study were focused on psychosocial impacts of living kidney donor transplantation. This finding is in accordance with previous research whereby related donors prioritised psychosocial outcomes, namely the donor–recipient relationship and family life. 15 Any unmet expectations of retaining a caregiver role (for donors), improved social life and increased intimacy caused disappointment and frustration in the donor–recipient relationship. Spousal pairs also reported increased tension and arguments prior to the transplant. The donor in the spousal dyad has multiple and simultaneous roles in the relationship —caregiver, spouse and kidney donor—and we speculate that this comprised an additional stressor on the donor–recipient relationship. Further, spousal donor candidates have reported feeling more responsible for the recipient’s health postdonation, again likely due to their multiple roles. 26 With the spousal donor and recipient undergoing workup for transplant together, this process became a priority in their life and led to increased tension and disruption. Previous research has found that spousal donors (when compared with genetically related donors) expect longer recovery times, more psychological problems and more pain and discomfort associated with surgery and recovery, 26 possibly compounding the experienced predonation stress. However, some spousal dyads felt that going through the donation process bolstered resilience in their relationship. Sibling pairs, when compared with spousal and parent–child dyads, seemed to be more analytical in their approach to decision making regarding donation with an acute awareness of the imbalance in the power dynamics due to the one-way gift. All sibling recipients in our study were either married and/or resided in another state to their donor; thus, unlike spousal and parent donors, the donor was less present in the recipient’s day-to-day life and did not hold a caregiving role. This finding provides a more nuanced picture and extends previous research that has found that related donors with close relationships to their recipients give less consideration to the risks of donation and their long-term health outcomes than those with more distant relationships. 27 Donor–recipient pairs felt unprepared and unable to manage side effects of immunosuppression, in particular, irritability and aggression. While the adverse effects of immunosuppressants (particularly steroids) on behaviour and mood have been well established, 28 29 little attention has been paid to behavioural strategies to assist patients and their families with such effects. In severe cases, recipients may be prescribed mood altering and stabilising medications (eg, antidepressants, antipsychotics and antianxiety medication) 30 ; however, evidence for this is limited to case studies and pilot studies. 31–33 Donors and recipients were also reluctant to discuss problems with their mood and sexual difficulties with their clinical team as they believed they did not have enough time to talk about issues secondary to the kidney. However, sexual problems have been reported in over 60% of renal transplant recipients 34 35 and have been strongly correlated with decreased quality of life up to 5 years posttransplant. 34 Studies have shown that unrealised expectations of donors and/or recipients of life posttransplantation contributed to difficulties in their relationship. 10 For example, donors and/or recipients were disappointed that transplantation had not led to the desired level of improvement in physical and emotional participation in family life. While our study confirms this previous finding, we also found that in some spousal couples, functioning (eg, energy levels, libido and level of independence) improved in recipients, and surpassed that of their donor, which led to tension in the donor–recipient relationship. In spousal dyads, it is common that the illness has become completely embedded in their relationship and identities, with an enforced imbalance of power and lack of independence in relational roles due to the illness. 36 Successful transplantation represents a milestone where both patient and spouse must communicate effectively and re-establish healthy boundaries and identities. We conducted longitudinal interviews with the same dyads prior to donation/transplantation and then 1 year later and this provided access to changes in perspectives and experiences in ‘real-time,’ potentially allowing more accurate recall of events and reflections. 37 This also enabled stronger rapport, and thus participants may have been more willing to disclose their perspectives more openly. We used purposive sampling to capture a relatively diverse cross-section of donor–recipient dyads. However, there are potential study limitations. Some donors/recipients refused to participate to avoid the risk of disturbing the stability of their relationship prior to the transplant, thus transferability of these findings to those with such insecurities about their relationship remains unclear. All participants were English speaking, >18 years of age and the majority had attained a tertiary level of education. While this reflects the majority of the donor population in Australia, the transferability of these findings to other populations and contexts is uncertain. Additionally, donor–recipient dyads where the recipient is <18 years of age may have unique experiences not captured in this study. Of note, in Australia, donors must be of legal age (18 years) to be a living donor. We suggest that future research includes other donor–recipient relationships (eg, parents and non-adult children, friends, aunts, uncles) given the rise of other types of donor–recipient relationships in countries such as the USA (Organ procurement and Transplantation Network, 2018 #505). Our study draws attention to the need for interventions and support for donors and recipients to manage mood changes of recipients, tensions arising from the gift relationship and adjustment of the identity and roles posttransplant. We recommend incorporating education on strategies to cope with emotional lability for both recipients and family members prior to transplantation. Additionally, this should be included in the postdonation psychosocial review in the first year posttransplant for both recipients and donors with referral to a psychiatrist, if indicated. 38 Psychological services can assist both recipients and donors with coping with recipient’s emotional lability through acceptance strategies, normalisation, behavioural strategies, improved communication and problem-solving abilities. 39 Education both pretransplant and posttransplant regarding the nature of the one-way gift relationship may help donors and recipients have a functional conceptualisation of the gift and ensure recipients are not overwhelmed by feelings of guilt. 40 Facilitating access to relationship counselling in the first year posttransplant may assist spousal couples struggling with unmet expectations and adjustment in relational roles and identity posttransplantation. 36 While living kidney donor guidelines 41–47 recommend assessment of the donor–recipient relationship and posttransplant expectations, guidelines for transplant recipients do not explicitly address this. Guidelines recommend psychosocial follow-up of both donors and recipients, however, the donor–recipient relationship is not specifically addressed. While some transplant centres administer quality-of-life measures (eg, Short Form 36) to review the psychosocial health and well-being in postdonation follow-up care, 48 49 many of these measures do not contain questions pertaining to sexual functioning and/or satisfaction and recipient mood changes, which were highly important to donors and recipients, who were hesitant to discuss these with clinicians. This calls for a need to include these domains in patient/donor-reported outcome measures. In summary, living kidney donation can strengthen donor–recipient relationships, but for some pairs, may also trigger unexpected conflict and tension and disappointment with unfulfilled expectations. Interventions to address potential relationship difficulties are needed. In terms of posttransplant follow-up, assessment of the donor–recipient relationship requires discussion about adjustment in relational roles and relationship dynamics, changes in emotional lability and sexual functioning and donors/recipients should have access to psychological services when required. A more comprehensive focus on protecting and supporting donor–recipient relationships may contribute to overall improved psychosocial outcomes and satisfaction in living kidney donor transplantation.

9 Safe Apoquel Alternatives

9 Safe Apoquel Alternatives
By: Deva Khalsa VMD –
Reading Time: 14 minutes
Allergies in dogs have truly reached epidemic proportions. Most veterinarians keep over-vaccinating dogs (read on to find out why this is a problem) … and conventional allergy treatments only work to suppress the natural functioning of the immune system.
Because of this, the genetic tendency for allergies appears to be increasing. Generation after generation it gets worse for our dogs. Allergies have become so much worse; even some of the drugs that used to help, like steroids, don’t work well any more. We’ll talk more about steroids later.
What is that over-vaccination and the suppression of the immune system going to do in the future? The epidemic of allergies we see right now is due to these factors, and the situation is only getting worse. It’s high time that we make a brave attempt to alter this course of events.
We need some Apoquel® alternatives . And luckily, I’ve got them. But first…
Is It Really An Allergy?
An allergy is due to a misbehaving immune system . The immune system is reacting to something it shouldn’t be reacting to. Think of a person with peanut allergies. All his friends may be eating all kinds of peanut candies and peanut butter sandwiches, but he can’t touch them. Is the problem the peanuts or the immune system? That’s right, it’s the immune system. So how do conventional treatments handle this misbehaving immune system? By abolishing it. No matter what drug I mention below, it’s an immune system extinguisher.
Interestingly, food sensitivities and intolerances are actually 15 times more prevalent than bona-fide allergies. In fact, reactions to food lie at the base of the pyramid in the whole scheme of allergies. The environmental factors act as the straw that break the camel’s back.
Throwing A Wrench In The Works
Here’s the rub, as far as food sensitivities and intolerances go. The reaction takes from a week to a month to manifest itself. So you can feed your dog, let’s say lamb, and get no response between days 1 to 14 of feeding it. So you assume that lamb is just fine. When you finally do get a response on day 21, you have no idea what actually caused it.
The standard allergy tests that most vets use to find out what your dog is allergic to are only 15% accurate for foods . What that really means is that these tests are 85% inaccurate and you can’t trust them at all as far as foods go. The good news is that these tests are 85% accurate for environmental allergens. Yet if foods are the base of the allergic response, we really have to find out what foods are the culprits.
Testing For Allergies At Home
The NutriScan food sensitivity test is a saliva test done by Hemopet. You can visit the website and send the sample in yourself. It’s a reliable test for food sensitivities and intolerances. (Remember, this is what’s really happening.) The thing is, you may find your dog is allergic to an amazing number of foods and be at a loss about what to feed.
I recommend you repeat the test every 6 months as the foods your pet reacts to will change with time.
Find three different meals that agree with your dog and rotate on a three-day basis. This will prevent him from developing an allergy to the food.
There’s another problem with finding out exactly what’s causing the allergies. Foods have compounds in them called phenolics. Phenolics create the taste and smell in foods and other substances. They’re in vegetables, fruits, meats, poultry, fish and potatoes. One particularly notorious phenolic is named gallic acid and it’s in 70% of foods. The issue: tests don’t check for phenolic sensitivity.
Often owners of dogs with “allergies” finally find a food that agrees with their best friend. Joyfully, we run and put Fido on the food and feed it every day. Why not? He loves it and either the itching or diarrhea or both are handled when he is eating it. Here’s the problem. Feeding the same food day after day will almost guarantee that an immune reaction will develop.
Here’s a perfect example: vets snap on talc-powdered latex examination gloves many times a day. As time passes we become allergic to the talc. Give it a little more time and we become allergic to the latex. Folks who never use examination gloves will not get this allergy.
That’s why the best way to go is to find three different meals that agree with your dog and rotate on a three-day basis. This will prevent him from developing an allergy to the food.
A Little History Of Conventional Allergy Drugs
It used to be that steroids, such as prednisone, were dispensed too excessively. Veterinarians had little choice about what to use for dogs with allergies. Steroids worked because they suppressed the immune system so well. But, dogs would wind up drinking and urinating too much and losing their fur when taking these steroids. That’s why dogs were weaned off as soon as they were comfortable again. Of course the fix was only temporary. Within weeks or months most doggies would have to go back on another round of steroids. Lots of dogs had seasonal allergies so they would go on prednisone in, let’s say, just the spring and fall seasons. At least they were only on these immune-suppressing drugs for short stints.
Feeding the same food day after day will almost guarantee that an immune reaction will start.
But then, steroids like prednisone and dexamethasone simply stopped working well. Dogs would take it and it did little for the itch.
Just about this time, a drug called Atopica (cyclosporine) became available. Some veterinarians began using Atopica instead of steroids. Yet, the side effects of Atopica were considerably worse.
Cyclosporine was developed in Switzerland in the 70s. It was designed to prevent the rejection of organs in transplant patients. In order to do this, it had to knock the immune system to smithereens. Dogs were getting cancer (one of the many side effects of cyclosporine) because they were on this drug.
That’s why, when Apoquel came onto the market, it seemed to be a dream come true. There was no excessive drinking as with steroids. There were no apparent serious side effects as with cyclosporine. Dogs simply stopped itching and were, once again, comfortable in their own skin. Veterinarians loved it, as it worked well in just about every case. The dogs loved it because they stopped itching. Pharmaceutical companies and vets loved it because people had to buy it and refill it each month … for the dog’s entire life.
Dogs weren’t taking it for some short period in the spring or fall when they had their allergies. Once they started Apoquel, the dog would seem to need it forever. Once again, Apoquel doesn’t cure, but merely suppresses the allergic symptoms.
Apoquel works because it slays the kinases, which serve as the communicators in the body.
Unlike steroids, it’s very difficult to get dogs off Apoquel. When I treat a dog to eliminate her allergies, I reprogram her immune system. I occasionally have to put the patient on prednisone for a very short period. This is because the capacity for internal communication in the body is compromised. Apoquel destroys the communication system. There has to be an immune system in place in order to correct it.
How Does Apoquel Work?
Exactly how is Apoquel getting the immune suppression job done?
Apoquel works because it slays the kinases, which serve as the communicators in the body. Kinases coordinate absolutely everything in the body with one communicating to the other. Think of it just like a big happy Italian family. Kinases never stop communicating. One talks to another and that one talks to 100 more kinases and the body’s functions get organized.
Kinases are the repair and regeneration mechanism of the body. They are the communicators and communicate between cells.
They have enormous diversity. They play a critical role in cellular communication and signaling.
Kinases send signals and perform regulatory complex processes in cells.
Dogs who get Apoquel become dependent on it. Allergies are often even more severe when the owner tries to wean their dog off it.
Kinases actually activate stem cells. Stem cells are our dogs’ internal repair system. They divide essentially without limit to replenish other cells. Each new cell either remains a stem cell or becomes another type of cell with a specialized function. These could be muscle cells, red blood cells or brain cells.
Kinsases are used extensively to transmit signals and control complex processes in cells. Up to 518 different kinases have been identified in humans.
Mutations in kinases that lead to a loss-of-function can cause cancer and disease .
The bottom line is that APOQUEL stops important kinases from functioning in your pet’s body. Apoquel obliterates several very important kinases to knock the immune system to smithereens.
And this particular allergy fix is addictive. Dogs who get Apoquel become dependent on it. Allergies are often even more severe when the owner tries to wean their dog off it. It’s a winning situation for the pharmaceutical companies as they get to sell this drug for a dog’s lifetime …
… until they develop cancer. One of the kinases Apoquel snuffs out is the one that searches for cancer cells.
Note: The drug Cytopoint was developed because it neutralizes only one kinase. That said, the communication between kinases is interdependent on many different kinases communicating. So the safety of Cytopoint remains in question.
Preventing Allergies In The Future
When there were fewer vets on the planet, vaccines were given to puppies and not repeated on a yearly basis. Vets had plenty of business and didn’t need to send out annual reminder cards. These old-fashioned vets were doing it right. One puppy shot for distemper and parvovirus after 18 weeks is GOOD FOR LIFE.
Of course now your vet will probably try to convince you to pay out for other vaccines. Leptospirosis, Lyme, kennel cough and canine flu vaccines – this list goes on. Just don’t buy into the hype . The first three are bacteria. Vaccines against bacteria have to be given at least 2 to 3 times a year to be effective. And the kennel cough vaccine? It doesn’t even prevent the disease: it simply lessens the severity.
The thing is, these unnecessary vaccinations and the suppressive treatments have an effect. Dogs with allergies are being treated with drugs that suppress the immune system … drugs that screw up the inter-body communication. What kind of offspring will these dogs give birth to?
Dogs have 10 times more mast cells on their skin than people do. If we were built like a dog, we’d be itching our behinds and inner thighs during ragweed season.
How many allergic dogs will we have in the next 10 years? Will the percentage double? I personally think it will go up, not twice, but at least 10 times.
So what’s the first thing I want you to know about allergies? You shouldn’t, and I cannot stress this enough, over-vaccinate. Minimize toxins and minimize vaccines . I’ve specialized in treating dogs with allergies for 40 years. And I create a non-allergic dog using natural methods. But I’ve seen allergies return right after dogs are vaccinated again. Dog gets better. Dog isn’t itching for years. Dog gets vaccinated and it all starts up again.
Preparation For Dogs On Apoquel
As Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This certainly applies to doggy allergies.
If you’re reading this blog, your dog may be on Apoquel already. I’ve got to warn you about what happens when you stop the Apoquel. Oftentimes, the itching that established the need for Apoquel will now be much worse. With steroids (prednisone), you’d just stop them and then it would take a while for the itching to come back.
It’s not so with Apoquel. The itching often comes back with a vengeance . I suggest that you have a natural substance at the ready (you’ll find these below). Don’t stop and wait to see what happens. You will, most likely, need something within a day or so of stopping the drug.
Allergies Can Be Complicated By Other Issues
Allergies do not, only or always, exist as an island in themselves.
Other problems can occur, either alone or in addition to allergies. And these problems can cause itching.
Something like sarcoptic mange (scabies) can look just like allergies. This is particularly true if the owner is doting and cares very well for the dog. In veterinary school, we’re taught the classical picture of scabies is a dog with crusts on the edges of his ears. I can say, with certainty, that I almost never see a case of scabies that looks like that. What I see are dogs who stop and itch when they’re doing something interesting. Sometimes the owners can have red bumps, particularly if they sleep with a dog who has it. It’s hard to diagnose with routine skin scrapings as the mite lives really deep in the skin. The best way to know if your dog has scabies is to treat it with Ivermectin. After the second dose (not the first) the itching will dramatically decrease. If your breed cannot tolerate Ivermectin you can use Revolution to treat it.
Dogs with allergies are being treated with drugs that suppress the immune system … drugs that screw up the inter-body communication.
Another complication is malasezzia. Malassezia is a yeast that normally lives on a dog’s skin and when it overgrows – boy is it itchy! I cannot stress this enough. Some dogs just have the yeast and treating it with an enzyme shampoo will help. But dogs with allergies tend to get inflamed skin and so the yeast has a super opportunity to overgrow. The itching of the allergy and of the yeast both combine to create a very, very itchy dog.
There’s still more. Dogs with allergies can often get a secondary bacterial infection, so you have to watch for that. A secondary bacterial infection is not uncommon in dogs on Apoquel. Demodex infections – a mite that grows in immune compromised dogs – also occurs.
In some cases, you’re treating for a myriad of problems at once. Allergies, insensitivities, intolerances, malasezzia yeast and secondary bacterial infection can all be common.
What can we do for dogs with allergies? Are there any alternatives to Apoquel? The answer to that question is a resounding yes.
Apoquel Alternatives
There are important Apoquel alternatives out there. I always prefer an allergy elimination therapy . Who wants to give natural itch relieving products, change dog food constantly, or read labels with a magnifying glass? You can change foods till the cows come home but you can’t avoid every blade of grass and every pollen or mold. Allergy elimination therapy is a simpler solution.
Stuff to do to avoid the allergic reactions:
Feed a rotating diet . Use a novel protein , which is a protein that your dog has never had before. Use novel ingredients. Try feeding rabbit based food as rabbit has one rare phenolic and contains no gallic acid. Get an air purifier for your home. Nip the itch in the bud with a topical product that works to calm the area in which it starts. Test Vitamin D3 levels . 75% of dogs fed commercial food are D3 deficient. Vitamin D levels have found to be very important when it comes to allergies. Here are some things you can use help the itch.
Remember – many allergic dogs are allergic seasonally. You can give these products during the common allergy seasons in dogs, the spring and fall. Another important point is that it’s difficult to get dogs off of Apoquel, so you need something on hand.
Chinese Herbs : Zhu Dan Tablets from Seven Forests can help with the itch. Give:
½ pill to 1 pill twice a day for a smaller dog 1 pill two to three times a day for a medium dog 2 pills two or three times a day for a large dog I recommend giving these with a meal.
Histoplex by Biotics Research. Give:
A small dog can get ½ pill twice a day Medium dog 1 pill twice a day A large dog can have up to 3 pills twice a day while 2 pills twice a day usually suffices. Betathyme – a naturally formed steroid that can help to stop that itch. Follow the directions on the label.
Atronex by Standard Process – is a very nice product that helps to curb the itch. Like Betathyme, follow the directions on the label.
Topical Solutions
Dogs have ten times more mast cells on their skin than people do. If we were built like a dog, we’d be itching our behinds and inner thighs during ragweed season. And, just like with people, your dog’s itching makes things worse. Itching increases the intensity of the itching because it activates more mast cells. When your mother told you that the more you itched that mosquito bite, the more it would itch, she was spot on!
What I’m trying to say with all this is that if you can nip the first itchy spot in the bud, you’re way ahead of the game. Itching begets itching and if we can handle the first set of itches we may be able to win the battle.
Derma Drops by Spa Diggety Dog – get these on the spot fast Zymox spray on or crème formula for hotspots Baking Soda – make a poultice and slurry it on the area NuStock – a dependable product to nip itching in the bud Allergy Elimination
While topical solutions win the battle, allergy elimination wins the war. That’s because it can correct the immune system’s perception of the item as an allergen. This turns the allergic dog into the non-allergic dog.
Allergy Elimination techniques began with Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET). Forty years of experience taught me that pet owners may easily do a similar program in the comfort of their own home.
My years of experience have allowed me to untangle and decode the basic items that pets need to be treated for. Allergy elimination techniques will naturally reboot, harmonize and revitalize your pet’s inappropriate immune system responses. It corrects the immune system so it behaves correctly and doesn’t overreact.
Some pets will need a direct consultation to assess and go over long term skin problems. For dogs with a less complicated history, they can often be helped with an at home kit.
For dogs with allergies and the owners watching them itch, Apoquel looked like a miracle. Unfortunately, it turned out to be anything but. The negative effects of this drug (as well as the others used to treat allergies) are now well known. Thankfully these Apoquel alternatives are things you can try to mitigate the risks and keep your dog safe and allergy free.
