How to Claim Apoquel Rebates the Easy Way

As a pet owner, you know pet healthcare, treatments, and medicine can be expensive. Even something as seemingly routine as allergy medication can cost a pretty penny. But their allergic reaction may be severe depending on your pet's breed and health history.

If your pet suffers from severe irritation or inflammation, your vet may have prescribed Apoquel, a common allergy relief medicine. This medicine is not cheap, though there are numerous and discounts. However, claiming these rebates is not for the faint of heart. Luckily, there's an easy way to pay less for Apoquel.

What Is Apoquel, and Does My Pet Need It?

Apoquel is a name-brand allergy medicine known for providing fast-acting allergy relief. It is sold in tablet form and starts working within 4 hours of ingestion. If you see your pet is excessively

  • Biting
  • Chewing
  • Licking
  • Rolling
  • Rubbing
  • Scooting
  • Scratching

Or your pet has developed sores, skin redness, ear issues, or body odor, you'll likely need Apoquel or a similar medicine. Untreated pet allergies can lead to:

  • Heightened dog aggression
  • Social withdrawal
  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Infections
  • Seizures
  • Weight loss
  • Serious digestive problems
  • Deafness (from chronic ear infections)

Pregnant or lactating females should not use Apoquel, nor should dogs or cats younger than 12 months old or pets with serious infections or cancer. Though it is not a steroid, Apoquel use may induce vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, and dizziness. However, Apoquel's side effects are generally mild and limited.

Because Apoquel is a brand-name pharmaceutical, you may wonder if there is a generic (less expensive) version on the market. Unfortunately, as the drug is patented until 2026, there is no generic version available on the market yet.

Alternatives to Apoquel

While there may not be a generic version of Apoquel, several natural and homeopathic substitutes can be used to treat aspects of your pet's allergies. If you're looking for a remedy specifically for their dry and itchy skin, you can try:

Take OrallyApplied Topically
Apple cider vinegar
Coconut oil
Chamomile tea
Aloe vera

However, while many of these natural remedies are still widely used, the empirical evidence for their efficacy is mixed. You can also use one of the following steroidal topical creams:

  1. Hydrocortisone
  2. Betamethasone
  3. Dexamethasone
  4. Triamcinolone

But be careful. Steroid use produces many unpleasant side effects, such as mood changes, muscle weakness, and a weakened immune system. Avoid over-the-counter steroid medicines and only provide them to your pet under the advice and guidance of your veterinarian. In most cases, expensive or not, Apoquel may be your best bet.

Apoquel Rebate Offers

Apoquel is manufactured by Zoetis, which was once a subsidiary of Pfizer. Like Pfizer, they sell Apoquel and other drugs directly to consumers and through a network of third-party retailers and pet clinics. Zoetis and its third-party sales network often offer sales incentives through affinity programs. Some even offer cashback rewards when you purchase Apoquel in bulk, which can help save you money.

However, sorting through each of these offers is time-consuming and complex. Do you buy from the clinic that offers $30 off a three-month supply or the one that gives you 10% off the standard price plus 20 points towards your next purchase? And if you're comparison shopping, are you willing to provide your contact information to a different retailer each time so they can bombard you with future sales offers?

If you can find one or two sellers who regularly offer decent cash back rebates, remember that rebate programs usually come with tight deadlines for redemption, specific eligibility requirements, and delays in receipt of your cash. That's not a condition unique to Apoquel. Retailers from famous department stores like Macy's, auto service retailers like Goodyear, to utility companies like Mass Save, offer rebates to attract customers but make redemption difficult to save money.

Even when redemption is easy, we forget or misplace our proof of purchase. And next thing we know, the redemption period has passed, and we've left money on the table. We have our Apoquel, and our dog is feeling better, but we've paid more than we should have to get that result.
