Q & A
Is it comparable to Apoquel? I fine Apoquel very expensive. Is it as effective as Diphenhydramine? What is the dosage for a 33-35 lb dog??
These medications are commonly prescribed to treat itching and allergy type symptoms in dogs, but they contain different active ingredients which have different effects in the body. Apoquel contains oclacitinib, a drug that works by blocking cytokines, a source of itching and inflammation. Apoquel is commonly prescribed to control itching caused from allergies and other skin conditions. Clemastine is an antihistamine that works by blocking histamine, a substance produced during an allergic reaction. Diphenhydramine is another type of antihistamine that also works by blocking histamine, but may also be used for its sedative effects. Diphenhydramine is an over the counter medication, whereas Apoquel and Clemastine require a prescription. The dosages of these medications will vary based on the type and severity of the condition they are prescribed for. Your veterinarian can provide the best dosage that suits your dog’s needs.Verified Answer
