Product information

What is Apoquel used for in dogs?

Apoquel (oclacitinib) is a prescription-only veterinary medicine that treats atopic dermatitis. It is a condition that is caused by an overactive immune system in response to environmental allergens like pollen or dust mites. It can also help manage other allergies, such as flea allergy dermatitis and food allergies. Apoquel can help reduce itching and inflammation, as well as improve the overall health of your pet’s skin.

How does Apoquel work?

Apoquel works by blocking the activity of specific proteins in the body called cytokines, which are responsible for inflammation and itching. By blocking these proteins, Apoquel helps reduce inflammation and itching associated with atopic dermatitis and other allergic skin diseases.

Is Apoquel safe for my dog?

When used as prescribed, Apoquel is generally considered safe for dogs. However, like all medicines, it can cause side effects in some pets. Your veterinarian will be able to advise you if Apoquel is an appropriate treatment option for your pet’s condition.

How do I use Apoquel?

Apoquel is given orally as a tablet. The dosage varies depending on the size and weight of the dog; always follow your veterinarian’s dosing instructions for your pet. If you have any questions or concerns about using Apoquel, please talk to your veterinarian.

How many mg of Apoquel should I use for my dog?

The dosage of Apoquel varies depending on the size and weight of your pet. It is important to follow your veterinarian’s instructions for dosing to ensure the safety and efficacy of treatment. The recommended dosage ranges from 0.4 - 4 mg/kg body weight per day.

What are the side effects of Apoquel in dogs?

Like all medicines, Apoquel can cause side effects in some pets. They may include gastrointestinal upset (vomiting, diarrhoea, decreased appetite), increased susceptibility to infections, increased thirst and urination, and rare cases of skin or ear infections. Always monitor your pet for any adverse reactions and consult your veterinarian if any concerns arise.

Can I get Apoquel for pets without a vet prescription?

Apoquel is a prescription-only veterinary medicine, so it must be prescribed by a veterinarian before you can buy it for your pet. Once you have a veterinary prescription, you can buy Apoquel for your dog from the vet or a pharmacy, including some online pharmacies such as HealthExpress.

How do I place an order for Apoquel for my dog at HealthExpress?

Simply, select the prescribed dosage and quantity and place the order. Once the order has been placed, you will need to post your pet's prescription to us. When we have received your order request and prescription, the details will be checked by our pharmacist, and the treatment will be sent to your chosen address.

What is the price of Apoquel for dog?

The cost of Apoquel for pets can vary depending on the formulation, dosage strength and quantity needed. You can typically get it for a better price if you buy it from a pharmacy than if you get it from the vet. Online pharmacies advertise their prices, and you typically won't find it cheaper than from an online provider, such as HealthExpress. Additionally, some pet insurance providers may cover the cost of certain medications. Always do your research before making a purchase.
