Does your poor pooch suffer from itchy skin? This new therapy can help!
At Fort Street Veterinarian, we’re constantly on alert for the latest, proven medications and treatments to help our patients. We’re pleased to announce that we now have a new therapy called CYTOPOINT™ to treat dogs of any age suffering from the itchy skin of Atopic Dermatitis. (What is Atopic Dermatitis?)
Just 1 simple injection works for 4-8 weeks
A simple injection of CYTOPOINT, administered here at our clinic, can begin giving your dog relief within 1 day and lasts for 4-8 weeks! Damaged skin can begin healing within 7 days.
CYTOPOINT works because it contains engineered antibodies (similar to a dog’s natural antibodies) to help your dog’s immune system defend against infection or disease. It’s also a safe choice for your dog because it’s a biological therapy and not a drug, and is naturally broken down and recycled by the body without impacting the liver or kidneys, as most drugs do.
“We have a number of medications in our arsenal to treat pet allergies,” explains Dr. Busselman, “but not every animal responds the same way to a treatment. CYTOPOINT gives us a new, effective biologic therapy specifically for the treatment of canine Atopic Dermatitis and we’re getting very positive reports from our clients who’ve tried it.”
