Does your itchy dog need to see the veterinarian?


These dogs were itching to get relief.
And we're so happy they found it with APOQUEL (oclacitinib tablet)!

Meet Gunner…and hear how apoquel relieved his allergic itch and got him back to playing–instead of scratching!

“When I saw the relief in Gunner [from APOQUEL], I felt the relief myself…I was hoping for good and got amazing.”

Gunner’s owner
See Gunner's Story
  • Gunner had developed an allergy that caused him to constantly scratch, pant, and roll on the ground
  • His whole demeanor changed—even his fun-loving, playful personality
  • Gunner was suffering, and nothing seemed to help—not oatmeal baths or OTC treatments

Then his veterinarian recommended APOQUEL.

APOQUEL relieved allergic itch within 24 hours. So Gunner was able to do what he loved—play outside in the grass—without the frustrating scratching, itching, and rolling.

Meet Bijou…and hear how apoquel helped relieve her allergic itch

“This stuff [APOQUEL] is amazing! She slept through the night and I slept through the night. She was not chewing and scratching as much, and her energy level was coming back.”

Bijou’s allergic itch was keeping her from playing and taking trips with her owner.

Then his veterinarian recommended APOQUEL.

Bijou’s allergic itch is gone and her energy is back. Her owner couldn't be happier to have his partner in adventures back.

Meet Molly…allergic itch won’t get in her way anymore

“Within the first couple of days [after starting APOQUEL], she was a completely different dog. She had done a complete 180 degrees with her personality and her energy level.”

Molly’s owner

  • Molly’s lifelong allergies and allergic itch made her so miserable that all she wanted to do was lie around all day
  • Molly was on steroid treatment, but the therapy caused excessive thirst and “accidents” in the house—which was frustrating for Molly and the whole family

Then her veterinarian recommended APOQUEL.

APOQUEL relieved Molly's allergic itch and her energy is back. Everyone in the family is happy!

Meet Nani…and hear how apoquel became her allergic itch-relief hero!

“I gave her the first dose [of APOQUEL] at night. She did not scratch or itch at all that night. Nani now can sleep at night, go outside, and play. She has a better quality of life.”

Nani's continuous allergic itching was causing her to break out with rashes and to lose hair. After a while, she no longer enjoyed going outside or touching grass due to her allergies.

Then her veterinarian recommended APOQUEL.

APOQUEL calmed the allergic itching within the first night. Now Nani can get back to enjoying outdoor activities!

Meet Captain…and hear how apoquel helped stop allergic itch once and for all

“Within a week of starting [APOQUEL], he had his cone off and he looked like a normal dog, which was amazing when for the last 2 years we’d watch him steadily decrease in health every day.”

Captain’s owner

You name it, Captain’s owners tried it. Lotions, shampoos, injections, antihistamines—but nothing helped to control his allergic itching.

  • Captain’s itching disrupted the whole family; his owners had trouble sleeping because of the sound of Captain constantly licking his skin wounds
  • Captain took steroids to control the itching, but they caused him to act lethargic and gain nearly
    20 pounds

Then his veterinarian recommended APOQUEL.

APOQUEL calmed the allergic itching within a week, and today Captain is ready and raring to go!

Doggy Tales
APOQUEL has helped millions of dogs get relief.2
how apoquel helps

*According to a 2013 survey involving 119 veterinarians and 356 dog owners regarding the APOQUEL Early Experience Program.


Control of pruritus (itching) associated with allergic dermatitis and control of atopic dermatitis in dogs at least 12 months of age.


Do not use APOQUEL in dogs less than 12 months of age or those with serious infections. APOQUEL may increase the chances of developing serious infections, and may cause existing parasitic skin infestations or pre-existing cancers to get worse. APOQUEL has not been tested in dogs receiving some medications including some commonly used to treat skin conditions such as corticosteroids and cyclosporine. Do not use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs. Most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. APOQUEL has been used safely with many common medications including parasiticides, antibiotics and vaccines.
