Apoquel tablets for dogs are indicated for the treatment of pruritus (itching) associated with allergic dermatitis and the clinical manifestations of atopic dermatitis in dogs.
Going straight to the source of the itch, Apoquel tablets will start to relieve itch symptoms, within 4 hours and will control the itch within 24 hours.
Apoquel can also be used to reduce the itching seen in dogs with other forms of skin allergy, but food elimination trials and treating for parasites (particularly fleas) is strongly recommended. It is also important to make sure that no skin infection is present, so a course of antibiotic might be given too.
Apoquel tablets are given twice daily initially, reducing to once daily after 14 days. Quite often a short course of tablets is all that is needed to control symptoms, but some dogs will go onto once daily dosing for a much longer period. Apoquel tablets suppress a specific part of the immune response in order to work. This is not usually associated with any side effects, but it is possible to see vomiting and diarrhoea, as well as a number of other effects. It is possible that the response to vaccination might be reduced if a vaccine is given while Apoquel tablets are being taken. These factors need to be taken into account, especially if long term use is intended.
Please select the strength and number of tablets written on your prescription.
