How does Apoquel (Oclacitinib) for Dogs work?
Apoquel contains an active ingredient —Oclacitinib. It acts as a Janus Kinase Inibitor (JAK) and works by inhibiting chemicals in the dog’s body called cytokines which stops the function of JAK1 and JAK3 (itch causing enzymes) and help curb the dog’s need to itch, thus allowing the area to heal properly.
