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®.
THIS MEDICATION HAS NOT BEEN TESTED IN DOGS RECEIVING SOME MEDICATIONS INCLUDING THOSE COMMONLY USED TO TREAT SKIN CONDITIONS SUCH AS CORTICOSTEROIDS AND CYCLOSPORINES.
However, it has been safely with medications including parasiticides, antibiotics and vaccines.
PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES FOR USE:
Just like other medications APOQUEL® has some side-effects. The most common side effects are diarrhea, vomiting, anorexia and lethargy.
We follow the American College of Veterinary Dermatology recommendation to do bloodwork (Vetscreen/CBC or equivalent) every 6 months for Apoquel therapy. If done at your regular veterinarian, they can either email the results to us at [email protected] or fax to 703-451-3343.
