Does your dog itch all the time? Do you think he or she is in pain because of all the itching? When your dog is in pain, it can be trouble not only to him, but to all the family. If your dog’s itching is due to a medical condition, we can help.
Here are some usual symptoms that your dog may have a medical condition:
- Excessive scratching, biting, chewing or licking

Apoquel® is a drug that can be used to help eliminate excessive itching. It’s a tablet that works at the source of the allergic itch to give your dog the fastest relief possible, regardless of the type of allergy.
Apoquel® starts to relieve itching in just 4 hours. It will effectively control the itch within 24 hours. It’s also able to be prescribed for long-term use. It can also be used in conjunction with other allergy shots your pup may already be on.
The four most common things that can give your dog allergies are as follows:
- environment (pollen, mold, dust, etc.)
- skin contact with allergens (i.e. shampoos, insecticides, carpet cleaners, etc.)
These are obviously common in your dog’s day-to-day life. If your dog does have any of the symptoms listed above, please bring your dog in. If they are having an allergic reaction, it’s much faster, easier and less costly to control in the beginning.
