Apoquel® (oclacitinib tablet) and Cytopoint are tremendous tools in the management of allergic and atopic dermatitis in dogs. On this episode of The Derm Vet podcast, I got to discuss both of these therapies with Dr. Dana Liska, DVM, DACVD. Dr. Liska is a senior veterinary specialist in dermatology with Zoetis Petcare.
Learn how these therapies can be successfully utilized during the canine allergic workup and provide relief from pruritus.
This podcast was sponsored by Zoetis. Zoetis is dedicated to changing the way we approach canine pruritus to protect the bonds between the pet, the owner and the veterinary team. Visit ScienceofStrongerBonds.com for more information.
Apoquel-Important Safety Information
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. For more information, please see the full Prescribing Information at APOQUEL.com.
