I'm running out of options, and money. My dog now has a cone or inflatable collar on most of the time. He's bored, depressed and he probably hates me, and I wouldn't blame him. I have to go to work as well as run my own business and I cannot always be there to play with him and try to distract him from damaging himself. I do my best. In the past 6 years I have tried and used combinations of: Apoquel, steroids, diet alterations, antihistamines, shampoos, creams. Currently trying Cytopoint which doesn't seem to be working as well this month despite a larger dose than last month. I cannot really afford the current treatment and the vet wants to use both Cytopoint and Apoquel together if this doesn't work. The price of that is crazy. I simply can't afford it. Keeping him clean and dry is virtually impossible but I try my best because he is prone to yeast infections in his ears and feet and backside. His walks have been reduced to walking him on a lead now because I can't let him wade about in the river or get himself coated in mud. His freedoms are gradually being reduced to virtually nothing. My dog's life is hell, and I hate every day looking after him now because I feel like I am being cruel to him. I hate myself for it too. I don't know what to do any more. I love him and I just want his suffering to stop and my sanity to be salvaged.
