WHY IS MY DOG SO ITCHY?
If you notice your dog is constantly itchy, it could be due to allergies. Like people, dogs can be allergic to substances in the environment such as pollen or mold. These seasonal allergens can cause a dog to become itchy and require treatment when itch “acts up.” But, if the itch persists throughout the year, ongoing treatment is usually necessary. Dogs with persistent itch due to allergies are often diagnosed with atopic dermatitis, a chronic inflammatory skin condition affecting up to 10% of dogs worldwide. Unfortunately, over time, this condition can get worse and impact your dog’s quality of life.
Your dog’s skin can become red, scaly, and irritated—signs that the normal, healthy skin barrier is damaged. Left untreated, damaged skin can become infected and require additional medications like antibiotics to resolve the condition. Dogs with chronic itch may also lose interest in playing or wake their owners up at night with the constant sounds of licking, chewing, and scratching.
GOOD NEWS: Your itchy dog can get relief and enjoy life again—CYTOPOINT !
What is Cytopoint?
CYTOPOINT is a safe, effective, long-lasting treatment to control itching in dogs with allergic or atopic dermatitis. CYTOPOINT starts controlling itch within 1 day and reduces scratching, chewing, licking, and biting of the skin for up to 8 weeks. In a study, CYTOPOINT helped damaged skin to begin healing within 7 days.
How does it work?
CYTOPOINT works like your dog’s own immune system to block the signals that trigger itch. Itchy signals are sent to the brain. Dogs scratch damaging skin. Allergens penetrate and cause an allergic reaction. Proteins that cause itch are released and attach to nerves in the skin. CYTOPOINTS works where itch begins and breaks the cycle of itch.
Safe for dogs of all ages
CYTOPOINT is safe to use in dogs of any age. It can also be used in combination with many other commonly used medications, and in dogs with other diseases. Because CYTOPOINT is a protein and not a chemical, it is naturally broken down and recycled by the body, so it does not put pressure on the liver and kidneys.
