16mg Apoquel for dogs is a prescription medication that is used to treat a variety of skin conditions in dogs. Apoquel works by blocking the signals that cause itching and inflammation, providing relief from symptoms associated with acute and chronic canine pruritus.

Canine pruritus (itchiness) is a condition that causes itching and inflammation of the skin in dogs. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including allergies, fleas, mites, and bacterial infections. Acute pruritus is a sudden onset of itching, while chronic pruritus is a more persistent form of itching that lasts for an extended period. Both types of pruritus can be debilitating for dogs, causing discomfort, pain, and even skin infections.

16mg Apoquel for dogs works by inhibiting the production of cytokines, which are molecules that contribute to inflammation and itching. By blocking these signals, Apoquel helps to reduce inflammation and provide relief from itching. Unlike other medications that suppress the immune system, Apoquel targets only the cells involved in the inflammatory response, minimizing the risk of side effects.

Description

16mg Apoquel for Dogs

Apoquel may only be supplied with a valid veterinary prescription issued by your vet. You should only purchase Apoquel if you have or are in the process of arranging such a prescription. See information bar for further details.

Apoquel is a fast-acting and safe new treatment for the control of acute and chronic canine pruritus. Apoquel provides onset of relief within hours.

Apoquel is a different class of medication that specifically targets the cytokines involved in itch and inflammation associated with allergic skin conditions with minimal negative impact on immune function.

16mg Apoquel for Dogs is designed to reduce the itching associated with canine atopic dermatitis. With the active ingredient oclacitinib, it works by specifically targeting the function of cell proteins to stop itching with minimal negative impact on immune function.

Apoquel is a once-daily tablet for dogs that can help reduce chronic itching associated with allergic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, itchy skin and food allergies. The convenient tablet contains the active ingredient Oclacitinib, a selective inhibitor of calcineurin. Apoquel works by managing the body’s immune response to allergens in order to stop the itching associated with these conditions.

One of the benefits of using 16mg Apoquel for dogs is that it works quickly, providing relief from itching within hours of administration. This rapid onset of action is particularly useful for dogs with acute pruritus, who require immediate relief from symptoms. Additionally, Apoquel can be used to manage chronic pruritus, providing long-term relief from itching and inflammation.

Another advantage of Apoquel for dogs is that it is easy to administer. It comes in a tablet form, which can be given with or without food. The tablets are also scored, which makes it easy to break them into smaller pieces, depending on the size of the dog. This is particularly useful for owners of smaller dogs, who may require smaller doses of the medication.

It is important to note that 16mg Apoquel for dogs is a prescription medication and should only be administered under the supervision of a Vet. Your Vet will evaluate your dog's health, age, and weight, and prescribe the appropriate dosage of the medication. They will also monitor your dog for any potential side effects, such as vomiting, diarrhea, or decreased appetite.

One potential side effect of Apoquel is that it may suppress the immune system, increasing the risk of infections. It is therefore important to monitor your dog for signs of infection, such as fever, lethargy, and loss of appetite. If you notice any of these symptoms, contact your Vet immediately.

16mg Apoquel for dogs is an effective medication for managing acute and chronic canine pruritus. It works by blocking the signals that cause inflammation and itching, providing relief from symptoms associated with skin conditions in dogs. Apoquel works quickly and is easy to administer, making it a popular choice among veterinarians and dog owners. However, it is important to use Apoquel only under the supervision of a veterinarian and to monitor your dog for any potential side effects. If you are concerned about your dog's skin condition, talk to your veterinarian about whether 16mg Apoquel is the right choice for your furry friend.

Apoquel should not be used in dogs less than 12 months of age or in dogs with serious infections. Apoquel may increase the susceptibility to infection and demodicosis and may exacerbate neoplastic conditions. Apoquel has not been evaluated in combination with systemic immunosuppressive agents such as glucocorticoids or cyclosporine. Apoquel should not be used in breeding dogs, or pregnant or lactating dogs. The most common side effects seen in dogs administered Apoquel were vomiting and diarrhea. Apoquel has been safely used in conjunction with other common medications including antibiotics and parasiticides and with vaccinations.
