We are happy to announce that we now offer a new therapy that helps reduce the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis in dogs. This will help restore the quality of life for both your dog and you.
Canine atopic dermatitis (ay-TOP-ick dur-ma-TIE-tiss) is one of the most common allergic skin diseases of dogs. Like human allergies, it can be triggered by seasonal pollen and other airborne allergens; it is not curable. It may be caused by factors such as your dog’s genetics, immune system problems and allergens in the environment. Over time, atopic dermatitis can worsen. Your dog’s skin can become extremely itchy, red, scaly and irritated. If your dog is not treated, there is a risk of hair loss and skin infection.
Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic (CADI) is a new therapy that helps reduce clinical signs of atopic dermatitis so your dog can stop scratching. It is a new type of medication called an antibody therapy, designed to target the itch at its source. It mimics the natural immune system of your dog to help neutralize the main cause of itch in atopic dermatitis. Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic is a once-monthly- injection given in our office. It helps offer safe, sustained relief of itch and clinical signs of atopic dermatitis. It reduces itching within one day of injection, controls itching for one full month, and improves skin condition caused by atopic dermatitis.
If you feel your pet may be a candidate for this injection, please call our office to schedule an appointment with our veterinarian. Let us help get that itchy skin under control.
