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. 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.

Apoquel tablets are given twice daily initially, reducing to once daily after 14 days. Quite often a short course of tablets is all that is needed to control symptoms, but some dogs will go onto once daily dosing for a much longer period. Apoquel tablets suppress a specific part of the immune response in order to work. This is not usually associated with any side effects, but it is possible to see vomiting and diarrhoea, as well as a number of other effects. It is possible that the response to vaccination might be reduced if a vaccine is given while Apoquel tablets are being taken. These factors need to be taken into account, especially if long term use is intended.

Verified Purchase

This medication has changed my dogs life. Before it she suffered terrible with her skin, and was constantly itching making her so sad. But she is now back to her happy playful self.
If you pay for medication be sure to order from violet. We buy six monthly and it saves us a lot of money. Do not buy from your veterinary surgery

My dog was suffering fur loss in patches. She was prescribed Apoquel which has reversed the loss to give her total cover again and a thicker coat at that. I cannot recommend the medication highly enough.

Our Black Labrador has had numerous skin / ear issues and we decided to take the plunge and try Rocco on it and we’ve noticed a massive difference already. Would definitely recommend it.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Apoquel, including answers from our team.

What strength would you recommend for a 12kg Schnazer?

  • VioVet Staff

The dose according the data sheet is 0.4 to 0.6mg/kg twice daily for 2 weeks, then reduced to once daily for maintenance. This is 1 x Apoquel 5.4mg tablet per dose for your 12kg Schnauzer.
This is a prescription only product though and your vet may advise a slightly different dosing schedule. I advise contacting them and following the doseage they write on your prescription.

Do I need a prescription each time I order apoquill?

Or I want to know if I can still order

  • VioVet Staff


Thank you for question.

I can confirm you do need a prescription in order to purchase this medication. Prescriptions are valid for 6 months unless the vet has stated otherwise. Your vet will prescribe the quantity of medication he/she see fit for your animal. You can buy form your prescripiton a number of time however this is only possible if you have not exceed the amount on your prescription or the expiry date.

I hooe this helps.

Prescription-related enquiries

Soyeon Bang

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: Busan, Korea, Republic of

I live in Korea.
I heard that a prescription is needed for Apockel's.
Is there a prescribed form of prescription?
Or is it possible to have a prescription issued by a Korean hospital?

There is one more question.
Is there a validity period for the prescription? Should the prescription be renewed on every order?
I'll wait for the answer. Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff


Thank you for your question.

We can accept a international prescription; however it must include the following details:

the name, address and telephone number of the person prescribing the product
the qualifications enabling the person to prescribe the product. It is recommended to cite MRCVS or the SQP’s registration number
the name and address of the owner or keeper
identity (including the species) of the animal or group of animals
the premises at which the animals are kept if this is different from the address of the owner or keeper
the date of the prescription
the signature or other authentication of the person prescribing the product
the name and amount of the product prescribed
the dosage and administration instructions
any necessary warnings
the withdrawal period (if relevant)
a statement that it is prescribed under the cascade (if relevant)

Prescriptions are only valid for a maximum of six months and it is entirely down to your vet how much they are willing to supply.

I do hope this helps.

Gary Chisholm

  • VioVet customer since 2009
  • From: , United Kingdom

Hi my dog was on Atopica for a year due to the lack of Apoquel in the U.K.
He has been on them for 5 weeks at 2 times 3.6mg tablets I asked to continue the loading dose of 2 a day as he was struggling with itching excessive paw licking and spinning on his bottom all symptoms of his Alergys.
They seem to be working but just not as well as I hoped , it's almost like there not quite strong enough.
He weighs 12.8 kg what dosage should he be on? I'm still giving him 2 a day as I know once I drop to just one 3.6 he will suffer .??
Kind regards

  • VioVet Staff

The recommended dosage is 0.4-0.6mg apoquel/kg bodyweight twice daily for 14 days then once daily thereafter for maintenance. This would work out at 5.12-7.68mg once daily for a 12.8kg dog on the maintenance dose. It would therefore be ok for him to continue on two 3.6mg tablets once a day or one 5.4mg tablet once a day. However you should consult your vet regarding the dose your dog is on as there is likely to be a reason that the current dose rate has been prescribed.

Dogs warmer than normal

Donna Beasley

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: California, United States

One of my Dogs seems to be Warm since taking Apoquel, is that normal?

  • VioVet Staff

Has his internal body temperature increased (as confirmed by thermometer)? I presume not and that you mean his skin feels warmer to the touch. If so, then this is difficult to measure accurately and indeed is often caused by the underlying problem Apoquel is trying to prevent, as well as many other things. This is not something I would expect to be caused by the Apoquel at all, but if you are unsure, you should see your vet about it.

Echinacea and nettle for dogs

Laura Chivers

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Devon, United Kingdom

Can I give my dog the chudleys echinacea and nettle with daily apoquel? I want to build his immunity up and look for long term solutions.

  • VioVet Staff

It should be perfectly OK to give Chudleys Echinacea with Apoquel. How effective it will be in modulating the immune response to things is not known, but it should be fine to try.
