CYTOPOINT® is effective even in challenging cases of canine atopic dermatitis1
COCO, male, age 11 years, Shih Tzu
Veterinarian: Dr Kimberly Coyner, Dermatology Clinic for Animals, Tacoma, WA
Coco had received many different treatments, all unsuccessful
Presentation and history
Coco had a long history of chronic canine atopic dermatitis. Treatments with corticosteroids, cyclosporine, oclacitinib, allergen-specific immunotherapy and a home-cooked hypoallergenic diet had failed.
Coco’s owners reported feeling helpless because so many treatments had failed to give Coco relief. Coco’s scratching would sometimes wake them at night.
“He was scratching all the time. He had lost all his hair, his skin was black, he smelled awful all the time, and his skin was even sweating. He wasn’t playful anymore, and always looked so sad.” — Clair Rice, 12/9/15
Coco was scratch-free within a day or two
Dr Coyner opted to treat Coco’s refractory atopic dermatitis with CYTOPOINT.
CYTOPOINT treatment result
Approximately 7 weeks after the first CYTOPOINT injection, Dr Coyner saw Coco for a recheck and a second injection. The owners reported seeing results almost immediately after the first injection—“Within a day or two, he was scratch-free,” they said. “His hair has now grown back…his skin is not black like it used to be.” – 12/9/15
“He is back to being his playful self. He is like a new dog and we enjoy having him around us again.” — Claire Rice, 12/9/15
Indication:CYTOPOINT aids in the reduction of clinical signs associated with atopic dermatitis in dogs.
