Hi, JACustomer. Unfortunately, at this time, we are not able to write prescriptions over the internet. Licensing boards for veterinarians require an in-person examination of the pet.

If your vet won't write a prescription for apoquel, you may well need to have him examined elsewhere and the prescription written at that time.

If you would like to discuss what you can do at home as far as antihistamines, just let me know and I'll be happy to speak with you further.
