CONVENIA single injection

Gunner’s story2

  • 12-year-old male Golden Retriever
  • Gunner developed a severe allergy, which quickly escalated to a large, distressing hot spot that alarmed his owner
  • Gunner was diagnosed with pyoderma secondary to allergic dermatitis and given CONVENIA for the infection and a first dose of APOQUEL for the itch while he was still in the clinic
  • Within 24 hours, Gunner had stopped scratching and rolling on the floor and was lively and playful again

Relief protects the bond

APOQUEL and CONVENIA are the new standard of care, in my opinion. With the anti-itch therapy as well as the antibiotic therapy, you’re taking care of both conditions at the same time very effectively and quickly.

John Hutchens, DVM


CYTOPOINT® is a great option during allergic flares when bacterial infections are present and administration of oral medication is a challenge

In clinical studies, a single injection of CONVENIA was clinically equivalent to a 14-day antibiotic regimen.

CONVENIA INDICATIONS: CONVENIA is indicated for the treatment of skin infections (secondary superficial pyoderma, abscesses, and wounds) in dogs caused by susceptible strains of Staphylococcus intermedius and Streptococcus canis (Group G).

CONVENIA IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: People with known hypersensitivity to penicillin or cephalosporins should avoid exposure to CONVENIA. Do not use in dogs or cats with a history of allergic reactions to penicillins or cephalosporins.

APOQUEL Indications: Control of pruritus associated with allergic dermatitis and control of atopic dermatitis in dogs at least 12 months of age.

APOQUEL IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Do not use APOQUEL® (oclacitinib tablet) in dogs less than 12 months of age or those with serious infections. APOQUEL may increase the chances of developing serious infections, and may cause existing parasitic skin infestations or pre-existing cancers to get worse. APOQUEL has not been tested in dogs receiving some medications including some commonly used to treat skin conditions such as corticosteroids and cyclosporine. Do not use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs. Most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. APOQUEL has been used safely with many common medications including parasiticides, antibiotics and vaccines.
