APOQUEL

(oclacitinib tablet)

APOQUEL® is a new treatment choice for dogs that suffer from allergic skin conditions.

It affords the damaged skin an opportunity to heal, while allowing ample time to identify the underlying cause of the dog's allergic disease. It will provide both owners and veterinary professionals treatment that reduces itch within hours. It is clinically proven to provide rapid relief within 24 hrs and provides long term relief from itching and inflammation without the side effects of steroids. It can reduce redness and irritation of the skin caused by allergies. Keep in mind that some allergies may require lifelong management with APOQUEL®.
