Efficacy of oclacitinib (Apoquel) compared with prednisolone for the control of pruritus and clinical signs associated with allergic dermatitis in client-owned dogs in Australia. Vet Dermatol. 2014;25(6):512-e86. doi:10.1111/vde.12166.

I remember when Apoquel first hit the market. For dogs with chronic allergy dermatitis and uncontrollable itching, it was a godsend. And for one of my training clients, in particular, it was life-changing.

Just like immune-suppressing drugs used in humans, Apoquel is linked to an increased rate of infection in dogs. The most common infections are Demodex mange, ear infections, and pneumonia. It is because of the potential for serious infection that this drug cannot be used in dogs under a year of age who naturally have weaker immune systems.

When it comes to Apoquel versus Benadryl, chlorpheniramine and other antihistamines for dermatitis, there really is no contest. Antihistamines are considered to have little to no effect on itching in most dogs and are rarely recommended to treat allergic dermatitis. However, they are significantly safer to use than other drugs and might be worth a try for the desperate owner looking for a short term solution while they employ one of the alternatives listed below.

And considering that 70% of canine skin conditions are allergy-related, addressing environmental allergens is a good place to start. Of dogs who do suffer from allergic dermatitis, around 90% of them are reacting to an allergy in the air or from surface contact. The most common allergens are dust mites, protein in flea saliva, and pollen.

Immunotherapy works the same way in dogs as it does in people. Tests are done to determine what your dog is allergic to. Then your dog is given a series of shots or oral drops over the course of days to weeks to slowly introduce the offending allergen to their system. Over time, the number of doses is decreased and the amount of allergen per dose is increased.

This is your list of foods your dogs cannot have for the next few months. Your challenge now is to find a dog food that does not contain ANY of these ingredients. I would recommend looking for a limited ingredient diet that contains only one protein and one starch. If your list includes multiple common proteins and veggies, you may have to hunt for a food with less common ingredients like venison and sweet potato or rabbit and oatmeal.

Yucca and quercetin are also great natural alternatives to Apoquel. Yucca has an effect similar to steroid drugs without the harmful side effects. Quercetin is a plant derivative that acts as a natural antihistamine and is a great option for dogs whose itching is reduced by Benadryl.

Sorry, I got off on a story and forgot to ask what I meant to. In the lead-in, it mentioned yucca. Now I read the article and I did not see mention of yucca, what does yucca do for dogs Thank you, I did enjoy the article by the way.

Hi Ashley, The best way to go is to feed quality raw food for dogs, especially if they are known to have allergies. Please read our article all about raw feeding here: -food-for-dogs-recipes-and-more/ Hope this helps!

From Karen @, Read your review I want to discontinue my 6 lb chihuahua off apoquel. and replace with omega supplements and the coconut oil. how did you stop the apoquel. I have put him back on grain free food , please feel free to e-mail me .thank you!

My 9 year old shiz tzu has been on Apolquel for several years. She was allergy tested and found to have a great many food allergies. Therefore I make her food, which consists of vegetables she is not allergic to and about a tablespoon of meat, such as salmon, which are not on her allergic list, and a special kibble. She gets Salmon oil and coconut oil in her food as well. I checked out Raw food and found
