Friars Road Pet Hospital now has Apoquel.  This is a new anti-allergy, anti-itch medication for dogs with allergies.  This works by suppressing the patient's immune response.  Allergies are the result of an over-blown response to allergens.  Apoquel ratchets the immune response to normal.

Apoquel comes in three sizes of pills for small, medium and large dogs.  It is reserved for the dogs with the worst allergies--the dogs who will only do well when on prednisone.  And we cannot have dogs on prednisone all the time, because of side effects.

Contact us about Apoquel and allergies.
