Apoquel Tablets for dogs are for the control of itching associated with allergic and atopic dermatitis.
the recommended initial dosage for dogs 6.6-9.9 lbs is ½ of a 3.6 mg tablet twice daily. The dosage for dogs 10-14.9 lbs is ½ of a 5.4 mg tablet twice daily. The dosage for dogs 15-19.9 lbs is one 3.6 mg tablet twice daily. The dosage for dogs 20-29.9 lbs is one 5.4 mg tablet twice daily.
Unlike common therapies such as steroids, cyclosporines or antihistamines, Apoquel is the only treatment specifically designed to go straight to the source of the itch. When given as directed by your vet, the active ingredient in Apoquel, Oclacitinib, uniquely targets the function of cell proteins to stop itching with minimal negative impact on immune function.
