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.”
