Before Treatment

After Cytopoint

CYTOPOINT® is effective and safe in dogs younger than 12 months1

Veterinarian: Dr Mary Schick, Atlanta Veterinary Specialists®, Atlanta, GA

Roscoe, at just 7 months, already had a history of canine atopic dermatitis

Presentation and history

Roscoe arrived wearing socks and not one, but two Elizabethan collars. Despite this protection, he was completely preoccupied with the need to scratch himself. Even though his hind paws were covered with socks, they were red and inflamed. Many treatments had failed, including multiple antimicrobials, ivermectin, lime dips and a diet trial. The owners reported that Roscoe’s itch problem was having a negative effect on the whole family.

Treatment decision

Dr Schick administered CYTOPOINT, and gave Roscoe another treatment 34 days after the first injection.

CYTOPOINT treatment result

Roscoe’s second treatment with CYTOPOINT lasted nearly 10 weeks. About 5 weeks after the injection, Roscoe presented for a bath, but he did not need another injection at that point. At 72 days, he was just beginning to chew his feet again. He no longer required any prescription drugs, E-collars, or socks.
