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:
  • Provides onset of relief within 4 hours
  • Effectively controls itch within 24 hours
  • Safe for short term and long term usage
  • Can be used along with many other common medications, including parasiticides, antibiotics, and vaccines
  • Uniquely targeted to stop the itch with minimal negative impact on immune function
  • Controls pruritus associated with allergic dermatitis and controls atopic dermatitis
  • Sold per tablet
How it works:

Apoquel is a selective janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, which targets pruritogenic (itch creating) cytokines. It effectively controls itching due to food allergies, flea allergies, contact dermatitis, and atopic dermatitis. Apoquel works to control pruritus for fast-acting relief, and provides significant short-term and long-term reduction of itching and inflammation.

Customer Reviews
Apoquel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wait for More Testing This was prescribed for my puppy to help calm skin rash and general itchiness. I blindly administered it for a few months, feeling it must be safe since Vet had prescribed. Shame on me. Visited a different vet for a second opinion on another issue thought to be unrelated and was told that Apoquel SHOULD NOT be prescribed to dogs under 1 yr of age, as it suppresses the immune system which can, can, allow Parvovirus (which every dog has) take root. Which is what happened to my boy- weird growths on his paws got larger and larger and were eventually lased off. Could this have been avoided? Perhaps, perhaps not. All meds have risks I know, but from now on, due diligence on anything that goes into my boy will be scrutinized by me. I do not think the rx and the warts were a mere coincidence. Needless to say, I have a new vet now as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works With the seasonal allergies that our Schnoodle has, he was going absolutely crazy, quite sad. Friend told me about Apoquel Amazing! With the right dosage, he is transformed back to his normal self. Happy day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing transformation! Our 4 year old shelty mix rescue dog has been itchy and scratchy since the day we brought him home. We have tried everything and spent thousands on vet visits, creams, pills, shampoos, nutrition supplements, training, shots and more. After 24 hours I'm watching our dog just lay in the middle of the living room floor completely relaxed and happy. It is truly a miracle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing relief! My 13 year old Yorkie developed skin allergies this past year. We have tried many things to help him with no luck. He started this pill today and found relief with a couple of hours. I am so happy he is feeling better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle drug! My 6 month old Newfoundland has awful skin allergies, to the point that she was pulling out all of her fur on her back legs and the rest of her fur was very thin. I switched her to hypoallergenic food, and gave her salmon oil daily. I also tried every cream and spray you could imagine and nothing seemed to help. Then my vet recommended Apoquel, well after just one day she quit itching and now after just two weeks her fur is already growing back in and there have been no negative side effects. Apoquel is honestly a miracle drug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder Drug! This is by far the best medication you can give your dog if they have any type of skin issues. My Wire Fox Terriers have some skin issues during the summer months.. Ones you give them a few doses of this WONDER DRUG they will stop itching with in a day or two.. Thank god this med is back on the market b/c I would not know what my babies would do with out it. I stock up on it since it sells out fast. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you baby or babies have any type of Allergies or skin issues.. There is no drug that even come close to Aqopel and that's a Fact!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast results Our vet prescribed this for my baby girl, a 6 yr old chihuahua, who was having a really bad problem with itching, especially in her ears. Because of her small size, she could put her entire paw into her ears & really get after the scratching. She would cry & whimper when scratching her ears. In one day, she had almost completely quit scratching. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results Had used it one day and saw results. Poor pups had been itchy scratchy but have all but stopped. Down to one pill a day and hoping soon that allergy season will be over and none will be needed.Also,the fast delivery time from 1800Petmeds was pretty remarkable. Happy dog.. Happy mom.

So is the price $2.51 per tablet? Or is is $2.51 for 100 tablets? I'm slightly confused on the pricing here.

How many tabs are in each allergy bottle at $2.66 for dogs? It looks like 100 tabs in each of 6 bottled to receive 600 tabs? Most vet only fill their own prescription. Will Petvax  provide you a prescription to fill my order with you? 

Asked by: Ginny
Yes there are 100 tablets in each bottle. Through the website you can leave your veterinarian's information in order for us to get the prescription. You have to consult with your veterinarian first for a prescription.

May I use Apoquel if my dog's weight is less than 6.6 pounds ?

Asked by: Mony
Apoquel is a weight based dose of 0.18-0.27mg/lb and should not be given to dogs <12 months of age. Should be fine to take in dogs <6.6lbs, but consult with your veterinarian first.

this medication made my dog's  skin worse..red  more scratching.. why?

Asked by: tzor
Not all pets respond to all medication. Some will have a good response but a small number will either have no response or even an adverse effect. Additionally some pets may have an allergy to a particular medication. This allergy could present itself as if it's making a particular condition worse. It is extremely important to call your veterinarian and discuss the effects that this medicine is having on your pet and get guidance. Only your veterinarian is in a position to have the required knowledge and particular details about your pets condition to make a proper assessment and give you guidance.
