My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet Techfor over 35 years.
Unfortunately the Apoquel is a Prescription medication and can be only gotten through your Vet;s office. With that being said we can off some supportive care by giving 1-2 mgs of Plain Benedryl per pound of body weight every 6 to 8 hours as needed. I would start with the low dose side and see if it helps, becuse it will make your dog sleepy. If the low dose does not work you can always give the second Mg and the pills come in 25 mg tablets.
I would see your Vet Monday and let him know you gave Benedryl in an emergency and get the Apoquel at that time.
