Apoquel is supposed to be a miracle drug for allergies ...
Allergies can be hard on your dog (and you), but adding Apoquel to the mix can turn things into a nightmare. Here's why:

#2. It destroys your dog's immune system

- Dermatitis symptoms (yes, that means allergy symptoms)
- Apocrine gland adenocarcinomas
- Mast cell tumors
