Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short.

I understand that your pet Molly is not responding to Apoquel in a timely fashion. You say she has had 2 doses already. Which means that she has been on Apoquel for a least 12 hrs.

Typically Apoquel works almost immediately after the 1st dose. By not being able to settle do you mean she is still itching and scratching or is this nervous symptom involve pacing which wasn't present before the Apoquel was started?

- Dr. H
