- Allergic dermatitis requires lifelong management – even when controlled, occasional flares can occur1
• Pruritic flares are to be expected, especially for seasonally affected dogs
- Prepare your clients for the possibility of flares by establishing an individualized plan
- Reassure your clients that their dog's current anti-pruritic treatment is still working
- Apoquel (oclacitnib tablet) and Cytopoint can be used to relieve itch while completing a diagnostic workup, while CoNvenia (cefovecin tablet) treats bacterial skin infection. Simparica (sarolaner) is a monthly chewable that starts killing fleas fast, within 3 hours, to help keep dogs protected
Guidance for Successful Flare Management
- Prepare for the possibility of a flare by maintaining open, two-way communication with the pet owner
- If you suspect a flare, schedule an exam for the dog to be seen
- Do not stop using the dogs current anti-pruritic treatment during the flare
- Complete the diagnostic workup so the underlying cause of the flare (eg fleas, dietary indiscretion, infection) can be identified
- Treat the flare with the appropriate therapy
