The active substance in Apoquel, oclacitinib, is an immunomodulator (a medicine that changes the activity of the immune system) that works by blocking the action of enzymes known as Janus kinases.
These enzymes play an important role in the processes of inflammation and itchiness including those involved in allergic dermatitis and atopic dermatitis in dogs.
By blocking the enzymes, Apoquel reduces the inflammation and itchiness associated with the disease.
Precautions Apoquel is not for use in breeding dogs, or pregnant or lactating females.
Dogs taking Apoquel should be monitored for the development of infections.
