Hello, here's some update.

We are still on elimination diet (he is eating only raw rabbit) from 8 weeks. He is getting APOQUEL 1/2 tablet/day and his scratching problems reduced to almost 0. Two weeks ago he had a blood test for environmental allergy and voila: MITES positive. Luckly (if we can say that) no grass and trees allergy.
Tommorow we are going to add raw lamb and see how's he reacting. Vet suggested to do new steps each two weeks to give a time for body to react. If everything will be fine we may try to reduce apoquel 1/2 tablet each two days... and in future maybe try to stop it for a while and see if it's possible to live without medication. Since we know he is allergic to mites we vacuum every day and wash blanket in his bed every week. I'm curious if any of you have an experience with desensitization to mites?! Is it effective?
Thanks for advice!
