If you are a pet owner who would like to learn more about Apoquel (oclacitinib), here are some resources to check out:
As a practicing veterinary dermatologist, I feel fortunate to have a new drug at our disposal that works so well. But, it is a drug that needs to be used correctly and under close veterinary supervision. Contact your primary care veterinarian or find a board-certified veterinary dermatologist at http://www.acvd.org who can determine whether Apoquel is right for your dog. It is not approved for dogs under 12 months nor for cats.
