Are you looking for an alternative to steroids, which can have many side effects and cannot be used in conjunction with certain medications?

After a several year wait, we are now able to readily dispense Apoquel, a new allergy medication that is virtually free from side effects and drug interactions. Apoquel works by targeting inflammatory mediators that are involved in allergies, without affecting the mediators that affect your pet’s overall immune system. In addition, it does not affect organs such as the liver or kidney, and does not cause excessive thirst and hunger like steroids do.

Please call our office at 763-566-6000 if you would like more information on Apoquel.
