    Frankie's story4

    Uncontrolled itch threatens the bond

    After having seen multiple veterinarians, Frankie’s owner was losing patience with the process and at wit’s end dealing with the itch. The bond between Frankie and his owner was under strain.

    • 6-year-old male Pug
    • 4-year history of progressive pruritus
      • Face and abdomen most affected
    • Common therapies, including steroids, tried without success
    • On prescription flea control, infection was ruled out
    • APOQUEL was not yet available when Frankie was diagnosed. Today APOQUEL would be indicated to provide itch relief during the 8-week food trial
    • Frankie's itch stopped with the change of diet, his skin returned to normal and the bond between Frankie and his owner was protected
