Roscoe Village Animal Hospital is now fully stocked with the new allergy medication Apoquel. Apoquel medication is used to provide relief to itchy dogs. This includes dogs with atopy (environmental allergy), flea allergy, food allergy, and contact allergy. It is fast-acting and effectively relieves itch within 24 hours. As a first-of-its-kind drug, Apoquel is not a steroid, antihistamine, or cyclosporine and therefore does not have many of the side effects of these drugs. It can be used with many other medications, including allergy shots, and does not interfere with allergy testing. In addition, Apoquel can be used for both acute and chronic conditions, which is especially wonderful for those dogs needing long-term itch control with minimal side effects. Apoquel has been safely used in conjunction with other common medications. If your dog suffers from allergies, please call and schedule an appointment at 773-549-3131 and give your dog a brand new life!
