Apoquel is a drug approved by the FDA in 2013 for the treatment of chronic or temporary allergic dermatitis in dogs. Currently, Zoetis, the maker of Apoquel, reports a nationwide supply shortage and many pharmacies report the drug on back order.

Allivet.com is an online licensed veterinarian pharmacy. Allivet.com carries Apoquel in three different dose sizes and charges per pill for the medication. Physicians call Allivet.com directly to order prescriptions or customers may mail in a written prescription. The website offers an email notification when its supply of Apoquel is replenished.

1800PetMeds.com is an online pharmacy that carries Apoquel. Contact information for the prescribing vet is required at checkout for prescription medications. Customers may also mail in a prescription for advance ordering.

Due to the short supply of Apoquel, many online pet pharmacies do not carry the drug at this time. Zoetis reports that it has solved its manufacturing problems and promises that supply will soon meet demand. Zoetis claims that currently over 16,000 veterinarians in the United States have access to the medication.
