Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dachshund has been on this for close to a year and it has made the biggest difference she would get yeast infections in her ears all the time but since she has been taking apoquel no more and no more skin irregularities and liking her self to death she can sleep and my baby again! Thanks so much for all the relief Apoquel!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sort-of? I tried a 5 day course from my vet for JRT and it seemed to help, so I went all-out and got 100! I wish I hadn't... they sort of help but certainly not as much as I was lead to beleive they would and after doing a bit more research about some of the side effects and other issues they can cause vs the small amount of relief they provide, it is not worth the $2 a pill. I also tried two 5 day courses for my other girl and they didn't seem to make a bit of difference. (In hindsite, I should have borrowed the JRT's for the 2nd round instead of buying more...live and learn I suppose.) These might be great for some, but they are not worth the +/-$240 dollars that I paid since they don't help my two and can cause other issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Worker My vet suggested this and literally within an hour, my sweet girl stopped scratching. If I miss one day of these pills, she's back to scratching. Yes, it is expensive but I figured since she is 11 years old, I'm content in giving her the best years she has left. While this medicine is a lifesaver, so is PetMeds. The shipping is insanely fast!! Thank you Petmeds for making this available to my scratchy girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Godsend for my maltese' skin allergies I have a 6 year old Maltese who began having allergies when we moved to a different city. He has seasonal allergies and sometimes due to the way his ears are, he'll get a yeast infection inside his ears. We were given Apoquel for the first time about 4 years ago, and it's been a Godsend. Once given to him, he will no longer lick his paws, or scratch his skin, and his ears infection will clear up. This is an amazing medicine for my baby!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful drug for itchie dogs. This allergy medication works quickly. It is expensive but if you love youryour family member to feel better quickly. It i the best made drug that really helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very expensive! I bought the Apoquel for my chihuahua. I read the reviews and tried it. It doesn't even help Brutus! This is more costly than my medications! He stills licks, scratches and rubs his body. It's also driving me crazy and I feel so bad for him. I'm trying a couple different ones to see if it helps him. It's in a liquid form and he does well with liquids on food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! Our dog was constantly getting these horrible patches on his skin. We washed him every week to keep it somewhat contained but the vet recommended Apoquel and he has had zero outbreaks...he is a 7-year old Akita and has had these skin issues practically since birth. It is pricey but if you shop around the online vets you can find it more reasonably priced. It is a med that can be used long term. We also give him the Grizzly Salmon oil which makes his coat amazing.

Questions

Can i buy that for my dog even no prescription my dog got severe Hot Spot allergy

Asked by: Debra
Thank you for your question. Apoquel requires a prescription and cannot be dispensed without authorization from your veterinarian. We do offer an over the counter hot spot treatment called HomeoPet Hot Spots which helps with all forms of eczema, itchy skin rash and hot smelly skin.
