If you’ve noticed your dog scratching or biting at their skin or fur, they may have atopic dermatitis, an itchy inflammation of the skin caused by allergies. This is a common allergic skin disease, affecting almost 10% of dogs worldwide and many more in Arizona. Like human allergies, it can be triggered by pollens and molds during certain seasons or by dust mites and other allergens in the environment.
Over time, atopic dermatitis can become a pretty serious health issue. If your dog is not treated, their skin can become extremely itchy, red, scaly and irritated, and it can eventually cause hair loss, skin infections and/or ear infections.
If this sounds familiar, talk to your Family VetCare veterinarian about CYTOPOINT. CYTOPOINT is an innovative new therapy that can help control itching at its source and relieve signs of atopic dermatitis for 1-2 months with just one injection.
