This product is sourced in the United Kingdom and is intended for use in the United Kindgom only.

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.

45 Apoquel Tablets
Verified Purchase

My dog is on long term treatment for a liver condition which causes distressing itching. Since starting these tablets her life has become more bearable, therefore she is a lot happier.

55 They work!
Verified Purchase

By on 4 July 2020

My vet prescribed these for my German shepherd as she was scratching excessively to the point of causing her skin to become inflamed and broken requiring antibiotics.

This medication worked rapidly to alleviate the symptoms to the point that she no longer scratches. The tablets are quite expensive but worth the cost of not seeing my girl in distress.

The cost of this medication is far cheaper from Viovet than it is from my local vets even when paying for a prescription so I would advise anyone purchasing these to do so from Viovet rather than getting them from your own local one.

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.

Do you have any apoquel 16 mg in??

Denise Esler

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Minnesota, United States

I desperately need apoquel for my dog. Says out of stock but then says limited stock. What would be the price in us dollars?? She takes 1 & 1/ 2 per day.

  • VioVet Staff

We generally do have a few of these for sale now, but they are in limited supply. If you buy them from the USA, in US dollars then you will pay about one and a half times the price as listed on our website in Great Britain Pounds. There is also a delivery charge of £10 which is about £15 dollars. So if you bought 100 of the 5.4mg tablets, they would cost about $160 altogether. (The price will vary slightly depending on the exchange rate between dollars and pounds.) You do also need to send us a written prescription from your vet authorising the tablets you want to buy. You can email us a copy of the prescription. (I expect the price will come down in future, as tablets become more widely available.)
