Hi my cocker spainal has some sort of allergy and he is scratching like crazy. He has been on aquopel for 12 months and my vet said this can cause him liver Damage so I have taken him off it. Is there any alternative I can use. I can't stand to see him so sore.

You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Jodie, I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please ask Sam's vet if the injectible Cytopoint (IL-31) is available in the UK. Here's the adverse effect profile for it: https://www.zoetisus.com/products/dogs/cytopoint/side-effects.aspx

Cytopoint is monoclonal antibody therapy (mAb) for chronic canine atopic dermatitis - the first of its kind. It doesn't have the same mode of action as the oclacitinib (Apoquel). Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
