Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

In regards ***** ***** question, the maximum dose for Apoquel in a 41kg dog is 1.5 tablets of the 16mg. Therefore, you can increase this dose to see if it is more effective for Brogan. Otherwise, you may need to speak to his vet about alternatives (ie Atopica) or using this in combination with a small dose of steroids to keep him comfortable.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
