New Allergy Treatment

Allergies

We are pleased to announce that we offer a new treatment for dogs with allergies. Cytopoint (also known as CADI, which stands for Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic) can offer 4-8 weeks of itch relief after a single injection.

This is especially exciting because it is the first treatment of its kind. Cytopoint is a biologic therapeutic known as a monoclonal antibody. What this means is that it mimics your dog's immune system to target and interrupt the itch pathway, breaking the cycle of itch and inflammation. Ahh, relief!

It is not a steroid (so none of the negative steroid side effects) and because Cytopoint is so specific, it has minimal effect on other aspects of the immune system. It can also be used in combination with other allergy therapies.

So far, we've had very positive results. If you think Cytopoint may be helpful for your dog, please call to set up an appointment so we can discuss treatment options and address any questions you may have. You can also find additional information at www.zoetisus.com/products/dogs/cytopoint.
