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.

55 Apoquel
Verified Purchase

By on 15 February 2022

This medication was recommended by my vet, for my dog with a skin allergy. The price via was vet was extremely high, so I requested a prescription and ordered from Viovets. The same medication but at a vastly reduced price. I scanned the prescription onto my account with Viovets and the medication was on route. Arriving two days later.

Apoquel dosage

Marie Lyon

Hi. My 3yr old Lab has been taking 16mg of Apoquel for the last 12 months. Is t advisable to now give her half a tablet daily, or keep her on a full one daily? Thanks,
Marie Lyon

This is a prescription only medication that your vet will need to prescribe for you. You should consult them regarding any dose changes, only they can provide this advice safely.

What dose for a 40kg doberman please


This has been recommended to me by my vet. I have a prescription from them. They suggested I look online. My dog is 40KG and has bad allergies.

  • VioVet Staff

The doseage for Apoquel can be found in the data sheet, however I strongly advise you discuss this with your vet. They should let you know the doseage when the product is prescribed to you. I have pasted the dosing information from the data sheet:

The recommended initial dose is 0.4 to 0.6 mg oclacitinib/kg bodyweight, administered orally, twice daily for up to 14 days.
maintenance therapy, the same dose (0.4 to 0.6 mg oclacitinib/kg
bodyweight) should then be administered only once a day. The requirement
for long-term maintenance therapy should be based on an individual
benefit-risk assessment.

Bodyweight (kg) of dog Strength and number of tablets to be administered.
Initial dose (twice daily) / Maintenance therapy (once daily)
3.6 mg
5.4 mg
16 mg
3.0 – 4.4 ½
4.5 – 5.9 ½
6.0 – 8.9 1
9.0 – 13.4 1
13.5 – 19.9 ½
20.0 – 26.9 2
27.0 – 39.9 1
40.0 – 54.9
55.0 – 80.0 2

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.
