Does your dog have allergies that make him or her itch? Do you have difficulty giving daily or even twice daily oral medications?

This is the first monoclonal antibody therapy in dogs which specifically targets and inactivates a major cytokine in the itch pathway, IL 31. It is safe given in conjunction with most medications including Apoquel and steroids. There are no known liver or kidney side effects. Ask your doctor about Cytopoint.
