9 Million Dogs and Counting

You can have peace of mind knowing that your dog is in good company—9 million dogs (and counting) have already had their allergic itch treated with Apoquel. Your dog could be next!


Do not use Apoquel in dogs less than 12 months of age or those with serious infections. Apoquel may increase the chances of developing serious infections, and may cause existing parasitic skin infestations or pre-existing cancers to get worse. Consider the risks and benefits of treatment in dogs with a history of recurrence of these conditions. New neoplastic conditions (benign and malignant) were observed in clinical studies and post-approval. Apoquel has not been tested in dogs receiving some medications including some commonly used to treat skin conditions such as corticosteroids and cyclosporines. Do not use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs. Most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. Apoquel has been used safely with many common medications including parasiticides, antibiotics and vaccines. See full Prescribing Information.

A Necessity!

My corgi suffers from allergies, and it seemed like no matter what we did, he would still scratch his eyes and ears until they were bleeding. We felt so defeated, but then we found Apoquel. It was the only thing that helped Leeroy get back to his normal, healthy self. He’s been taking it for probably about a year now, and he doesn’t ever go for his eyes and ears anymore. It’s a little pricey and unfortunately it’s increased in price since he’s been prescribed it, but it’s worth the money for how much it’s helped.

Expensive but worth it

I resisted putting Bandit on this for a while because of the cost. But considering all the vet visits I had to pay for, this was WAY less money in the long run. Bandit has terrible allergies, and last year he developed two (at the same time) antibiotic resistant infections that affected all 4 feet. It cost thousands (literally) because we had regular vet visits as well as several to a pet dermatologist. It took some very severe antibiotics (3 courses) to get this healed. If he had been on Apoquel I think all of this would have been avoided because the allergies gave the bacteria a chance to take hold. So he has been on this for nearly a year and we have had no further problems. Last winter is the first winter in 6 years that his feet were not naked of hair from allergies. So, yes, it is expensive. But it WORKS and you don’t have to keep going for expensive vet visits.

Quick fix with long term side effects

Initially it stopped the itching quicker than anything else but later we went on to battle demodectic mites and a plethora of other issues. We are now going through dietary changes, supplements and a topical regimen to address his allergies and are seeing improvements that we never had before.

Must have if your dog suffers from allergies

This pill is a wonder pill. My lab started to suffer from grass allergies the past 2 years from Spring to Fall. She's fine all winter, but as soon as the grass turns green, she starts scratching, and you can hear her all night long. Last year, the vet recommended Apoquel, said it's expensive, but works. I tried it, and within 2 days of taking this, the scratching stopped. This year, as soon as the scratching started, I called the vet and got a prescription. Ordered through Chewy because it cost less from them then directly from the vet, and it came within 2 days. Highly recommended if your dog suffers from allergies!

Apoquel totally works, a little pricey, but worth the peace of mind for NO itching! The ease of placing Franks script order and the speedy delivery to avoid any missing doses, was awesome.. ** AND *** The price is cheaper here than anywhere else.

Great product and excellent service

This medication has helped prevent recurring skin allergies and infections for my American Bulldog. Chewy also makes the management of the medication so stress-free. Thank you!

Allergy Relief

Medicine helps, but is way too expensive. One of my dogs sneezes and medicine stops that. My other dog constantly scratching does not help so much with that

This really works!!!

I was reluctant to take my dog to the vet, thinking I would be advised to change dog food, and try to determine what environmental factors were causing my dog to scratch, bite and chew on herself incessantly. Worse yet, I did not want her on a steroid that would change her demeanor and behaviors. The itching seemed to be worse at night, keeping all of us up. The vet prescribed Apoquel and after the first dose, the itching stopped, The only drawback is the price. It is expensive to use as a daily maintenance drug, but worth it because IT WORKS!

The ONLY medication that has help my baby!

I do not like medication for me or my babies. However, after moving to Florida from NY my oldest Boston Terrier developed horrible. I even changed my floors from carpet to wood floors, still did not alleviate this itching and licking. After taking apoquel for 1 month, Rocco was soo much better. His hair be hide his ears started to grow.. so happy. :)
