Apoquel for dogs functions by suppressing the immune system's response to itching and inflammation. While highly effective for managing allergies, it may also reduce the body's ability to combat infections.
If your dog requires Apoquel treatment over an extended period, your veterinarian will diligently monitor them for potential complications, including alterations in bloodwork or organ function.
While Apoquel is generally well-tolerated, potential drug interactions should be considered like corticosteroids, other Immunosuppressants, cyclosporine, digoxin and other medications. Your veterinarian will meticulously consider these interactions and make informed decisions regarding your dog's treatment plan. Never modify your dog's medication regimen without consulting your veterinarian first.
