What is Apoquel?

Apoquel is used to treat and control itching and inflammation in dogs resulting from a variety of causes, including flea allergy, food allergy, contact allergy and atopic dermatitis. Apoquel delivers onset of relief within 4 hours. It effectively controls itching within 24 hours. Apoquel requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.

For:

Dogs over 12 months in age and weighing more than 6.6 lbs.

Benefits:

  • Onset of relief within 4 hours
  • Effective in controlling itch within 24 hours
  • Safe for use in dogs for both short term and long term
  • Compatible with other common medications, including parasiticides, antibiotics, and vaccines
  • Stops the itch with minimal negative impact on immune function
  • Controls both atopic dermatitis and allergic dermatitis

Cautions:

Do not use Apoquel in dogs less than 12 months of age or those with serious infections. Apoquel may increase the chances of developing serious infections, and may cause existing parasitic skin infestations or pre-existing cancers to get worse. Apoquel has not been tested in dogs receiving some medications including some commonly used to treat skin conditions such as corticosteroids and cyclosporines. Do not use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs. Most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea.
