Apoquel for dogs

Apoquel is a powerful, anti allergic treatment for pruritis associated with allergic dermatitis and atopic dermatitis in dogs. It also helps in the itching associated with food allergies in canines. Apoquel is a fast acting anti-inflammatory treatment that starts working within 4 hours of its administration. It also removes complete itching within 24 hours. Dogs that are over 12 months of age and weigh more than 6.6 lbs can be successfully treated with Apoquel.

How Does It Work?

Apoquel is a highly effective treatment for eliminating allergic reaction in dogs. Oclacitinib maleate,the active ingredient in the product gets readily absorbed by the body and starts acting in few hours to provide relief. It works to inhibit the function of proinflammatory and pruritogenic cytokines like JAK 1 and JAK 3 that are responsible for producing allergic reaction in the body.
