CYTOPOINT™ is effective and safe in dogs younger than
ROSCOE, male, age 7 months, American Staffordshire Terrier
Veterinarian: Dr Mary Schick, Atlanta Veterinary Specialists®, Atlanta, GA
Roscoe, at just 7 months, already had a history of 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.
Roscoe’s CYTOPOINT treatments gave him long-lasting relief
Dr Schick administered CYTOPOINT, and gave Roscoe a second treatment 34 days after the first injection.
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.
“[Roscoe’s owner] is very excited. Roscoe’s response to treatment with CYTOPOINT… had such a profound effect on their family’s life!”
