Defining treatment success

  • Repeat administration every 4 to 8 weeks as needed in individual patients.1
  • Successful canine pruritus relief was defined as a reduction in pruritus score of ≥20 mm on the visual analog scale (VAS). VAS is an owner-assessed scale that measures itch along a continuum from normal dog (no itch) to extremely severe itch, using numbers from 0 to 100. VAS scoring instruments were given to owners, accompanied by explanations of how to record itch based on the behavior of the dog. Owners recorded itch on Days 1, 2, 3, 7 and every 7 days thereafter.1
  • Significantly different compared to placebo (P≤0.05).

CADESI-03 skin condition assessment consisted of an evaluation of erythema, lichenification, excoriation and self-induced alopecia at 62 body sites.1
  • Significantly different compared to placebo (P≤0.05).
