Oclacitinib, marketed under the trade name Apoquel, is a recently developed, orally administered, small molecule pharmaceutical that specifically targets the JAK1 and JAK2 signaling pathways, which are known to play a significant role in the pathogenesis of itching and inflammation in canines. This innovative veterinary drug has been indicated for the treatment of pruritus associated with allergic dermatitis and the management of atopic dermatitis in dogs that have reached the age of twelve months or older.
In terms of dosing, the recommended amount of Apoquel to be administered is based on the body weight of the dog, with a range of 0.18 to 0.27 milligrams per pound of body weight to be given orally twice daily for a maximum period of fourteen consecutive days, followed by a maintenance dose that falls within the range of 0.09 to 0.18 milligrams per pound, which is to be given orally once daily. It is important to note that the use of this drug is contraindicated in dogs that are experiencing serious infections, and should be administered with caution in those with a history of neoplasia.
Adverse effects that have been reported to occur as a result of the administration of Apoquel include vomiting, diarrhea, anorexia, and lethargy. In some isolated cases, it has been observed that there may be an increase in liver enzyme activity, leukopenia, and elevated cholesterol levels. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to thoroughly familiarize oneself with the drug and its potential effects prior to administering it to a beloved pet.
Pet owners now have the convenience of easily acquiring Apoquel through various online pet pharmacies. However, it is highly recommended to consult with a veterinarian before administering any medication to a pet, as they are best equipped to determine if Apoquel is appropriate for the individual needs of the pet and provide proper dosing instructions. In conclusion, Apoquel represents a highly efficacious solution for the management of pruritus and atopic dermatitis in dogs, and with the guidance of a veterinarian, can be procured through the convenient medium of online purchase.
Apoquel is an extremely promising new drug aimed at treating the discomfort which is seen in allergic skin disease, especially when that relates to airborne or environmental allergens. Early reports on its use are especially encouraging and sometimes quite dramatic. Vets will prescribe it particularly to treat atopic dermatitis or atopy, which is a common cause if itchiness and discomfort found in dogs which are reacting to house dust and house dust mites, as well as other triggers of allergic skin disease found in the environment. Apoquel can also be used to reduce the itching seen in dogs with other forms of skin allergy, but food elimination trials and treating for parasites (particularly fleas) is strongly recommended. It is also important to make sure that no skin infection is present, so a course of antibiotic might be given too.
