Apoquel is specifically formulated to relieve itchiness associated with skin allergies. It can also be taken in conjunction with other medications meant to treat your dog's seasonal allergies as directed by your veterinarian.

Apoquel starts working within 4 hours of administering the first dose and controls itching within 24 hours. To ensure that it's easy to administer the proper dosage to your dog, this treatment comes in three different dosages. Each dosage is sold per tablet, in 20 count, or 100 count bottles.

See signs of allergic itch? See your veterinarian

All dogs scratch, lick, and chew - but if it's becoming more frequent and excessive, it may mean something more.

Common signs

  • Frequent scratching, licking, biting, or chewing
  • Excessive rolling, rubbing, or scooting
  • Recurrent ear problems (such as head shaking, ear discharge/odor, or scratching at ears)
  • Hair loss, body odor, or skin changes (such as rash, redness, greasy skin, or scabs)

Common causes

  • Flea allergy
  • Food allergy
  • Environmental indoor and outdoor allergens (such as pollen, dust mites, and mold)
  • Contact allergy (such as carpet cleaners, shampoos, plants, and insecticidal products)

Caution:

Federal (USA) Law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Warnings:

APOQUEL is not for use in dogs less than 12 months of age (see Animal Safety).

APOQUEL is not for use in dogs with serious infections.

APOQUEL may increase susceptibility to infection, including demodicosis, and exacerbate neoplastic conditions (see Adverse Reactions and Animal Safety).

Human Warnings:

This product is not for human use. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. For use in dogs only. Wash hands immediately after handling the tablets. In case of accidental eye contact, flush immediately with water or saline for at least 15 minutes and then seek medical attention. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical attention immediately.

Precautions:

APOQUEL is not for use in breeding dogs, or pregnant or lactating bitches.

The use of APOQUEL has not been evaluated in combination with glucocorticoids, cyclosporine, or other systemic immunosuppressive agents.

Dogs receiving APOQUEL should be monitored for the development of infections, including demodicosis, and neoplasia.

Storage:

APOQUEL should be stored at controlled room temperature between 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions between 15° to 40°C (59° to 104°F)

FAQ

Yes, you can use APOQUEL for short periods. APOQUEL begins relieving allergic dog itch within 4 hours, and controls it within 24 hours.

Yes, APOQUEL may be used with other treatment such as:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (eg, carprofen)
  • Vaccines (rabies)
  • Allergen-specific immunotherapy (allergy shots or drops)

The use of APOQUEL has not been evaluated in combination with other systemic immunosuppressants, such as corticosteroids and cyclosporine.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not placed any time restrictions on the use of APOQUEL. Your dog can continue to be treated with APOQUEL as long as your veterinarian recommends. In a study, dogs were treated with APOQUEL for more than 2 years.
Yes, APOQUEL can be given with or without food.
APOQUEL is given twice daily for up to 14 days, and then given once daily for maintenance therapy.
APOQUEL starts relieving allergic itch within 4 hours of giving the treatment to your dog.
The most common side effects of APOQUEL in a short-term clinical trial were vomiting and diarrhea. These occurred in only a small percentage of dogs treated with APOQUEL. These side effects typically stopped on their own.
APOQUEL is a medication for dogs prescribed by a veterinarian for dogs 12 months of age or older to control the itch and inflammation associated with allergic and atopic dermatitis.
Occasional itching is a fact of life for dogs. However, allergies, fleas, mites, infection, and other diseases may cause more frequent or constant itching, indicating a more serious condition. If you notice your dog is itching more often, and/or you see changes in your dog's skin, including hot spots, redness, or rash, make an appointment to visit your veterinarian and get it checked out.
If your dog is scratching, licking, or biting the same area repeatedly, the skin can become damaged, red, and sore. It's a good idea to ask your dog's veterinarian about the possible causes. It could be due to allergies, and in this event, your pet may require a prescription treatment such as APOQUEL to treat the underlying cause. There also may be a skin infection that requires antibiotic or antifungal treatment from your veterinarian.
APOQUEL is not a steroid, antihistamine, or cyclosporine (a type of drug that reduces immune system activity). APOQUEL is in a different category of medications. Unlike other medicines, APOQUEL blocks allergic itch at the source. So, it works at the underlying cause of itch to provide relief fast.

If your dog's itching persists or you notice any of the following signs, you should make an appointment to visit your veterinarian to find out if the itching is caused by a medical condition:

  • Frequent scratching, licking, biting, or chewing
  • Excessive rolling, rubbing, or scooting
  • Recurrent ear problems (head shaking, ear discharge/odor, or scratching at ears)
  • Hair loss, body odor, or skin changes (such as rash, redness, greasy skin, or scabs)
