Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Gives Her Life Back to Her! My foster dog, who was found as a stray, itched, licked, & nibbled her skin constantly & obsessively, to the point where she wouldn’t even stop for a treat or an outing (her favorite things!). She had open sores all over her paws and legs. Also had almost chewed through her tail! Within 2-3 days after her first shot, she was a lively, engaging, happy girl! After 4 weeks it started wearing off. The cycle started again. She just had her 2nd shot today, after 8 weeks. Next time I’ll find the $ somewhere & not wait so long! Thank goodness there’s something to give her a normal life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best therapy for allergic skin I was reading the reviews and marveling at the complaints about what the vets charge. A person with a 93 pound dog was complaining about the vet charging $212 for the injection. I just calculated the cost from this site for the 2 fourty pound doses and the twenty pound dose ($239.71) not including the cist of overnight shipping. It sounds like the vet isn't charging too much now, is he/she?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Stop the Itch! My dog has been getting this injection every 3 months or so for the past year when she began licking and biting herself constantly. It has worked very well. I wish it weren't so expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product Cytopoint is my dogs life saver!! India would lick her paws raw and chew on her feet constantly. Scratch her mouth and neck and ears all the time. I changed her food to many times to count. Gave her supplements. Everything and nothing would help her. She even tried Apoquel and it worked for a couple of days then nothing. With Cytopoint she is completely itch free!!! This is her second month. She can go to the middle of the 4th week then she starts licking and scratching. Immediately after her injection she is itch free. I’m hoping at some point she will be able to go longer as it is expensive at the vet. Much better price here. However just seeing how happy and comfortable she is, is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly fast acting product! OK, so my 14 year old Yorkie just had his first injection at the vet today. I was told it could take a few days to help him with the primarily groin and feet itching and licking. He hasn't bothered with his skin since we left the vet this morning.....I am impressed. I understand why the vet would charge a fair amount; I paid $44 for my 11 pound dog. He can have it again in a month, and a tech will administer. After trying everything else and spending far too much with poor results, this is worth every cent. Apoquel works for the majority of dogs, but did nothing for him. Only prednisone (steroid) helped, but cannot be administered long term. I am sold on Cytopoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After years of suffering, my dog has relief. I have a Japanese Chin, which are well known to have allergic issues. She would scratch and pull her hair out until she would be a bloody, furless mess. We treated her for years with steroid injections, antibiotics and flea treatments, those treatments have caused her to become overweight and with kidney issues. Now she is typically itch free within 24 hours of her Cytopoint injections. The only drawback I see is that the vet has to adminster it at an inflated cost. Thanks Cytopoint. My baby now has relief that lasts as long as 3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best and safest After thousands of dollars and lots of special baths, plus allergy testing. My 4 year old Australian shepard/Border Collie mix was as desperate as I was. This medication can be used in combination with other medications because it's not a steroid. My dog was allergic to almost everything in our yard out in the country. We fell upon the cytopoint the day it was released to certain veterinarians in our area from pet dermatologist. We got so lucky, now after using it monthly, it has built up to 8 weeks and beyond! Superior medication that someone who is a former groomer and worked in vet hospitals, I highly recommend Cytopoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Both my dog and I have atopic dermatitis. It’s sadly ironic. However, Cytopoint has been the only medicine that has worked on my 30 pound dog. We tried antihistamines, bathes, etc. He used to be so pink from the inflammation.

Is this a successful medication for dogs that lick their butts a lot and scoot a lot? 

Asked by: Mcstr
Cytopoint is a biological therapy used to help dogs with atopic dermatitis (commonly called skin allergies). Signs of atopic dermatitis can include itching, scratching, licking, and rubbing at the skin around the underarms, paws, and around the face. When the itch is controlled, the damaged skin can heal, so that your dog can enjoy the fun things in life again. Cytopoint requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

What is Cytopoint?

Cytopoint is a biological therapy used to help dogs with atopic dermatitis (commonly called skin allergies). Signs of atopic dermatitis can include itching, scratching, licking, and rubbing at the skin around the underarms, paws, and around the face. When the itch is controlled, the damaged skin can heal, so that your dog can enjoy the fun things in life again. Cytopoint requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Cytopoint requires refrigeration and must be kept at refrigerator temperatures at all times. To ensure proper temperature, it requires overnight shipping at an additional cost.

NOTE: Syringes are sold separately. Use with 3cc (3 ml) Luer-Slip syringe with a 3/4-inch 22 G needle or 3 cc/mL 22g x 3/4 Needle.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Fast, lasting itch relief
  • Heals damaged skin after just 1 injection
  • Keeps itch controlled for a month or longer

How does Cytopoint work?

Cytopoint targets and neutralizes interleukin (IL)-31, which is a key itch-causing cytokine in atopic dermatitis. After injection, Cytopoint begins working within the first 24 hours and delivers approximately four-to-eight weeks of relief. Cytopoint is different from traditional drugs that treat itching. It is a biological therapy - a type of non-pharmaceutical treatment that works like your dog's immune system. Cytopoint contains engineered antibodies very similar to a dog's natural antibodies, and in this case, have been designed to specifically target and neutralize one of the main proteins that send itch signals to a dog's brain. This helps minimize scratching so the skin has a chance to heal.

Cautions:

Cytopoint requires refrigeration. Overnight shipping is required and additional shipping charges are applicable. Cytopoint doesn't contain any preservatives so each vial is for single use only and should be discarded after the puncture. Cytopoint is intended for subcutaneous (under the skin) use only. When first opened, use entire contents of Cytopoint. Only sterilized syringes and needles should be used to administer Cytopoint. The product hasn't been tested in pregnant, lactating or breeding animals.

Brand Name:

Cytopoint (Zoetis)

What is the most important thing I should know about Cytopoint?

Cytopoint should only be used by a veterinarian or under the direction of a veterinarian. The medicine should only be administered subcutaneously. It is best to monitor your dog's itch to see how well Cytopoint is working and to decide if/when your dog needs another injection. Furthermore, because Cytopoint is a biological therapy and not a drug, it is naturally broken down and recycled by the body. It is not eliminated from the body via the liver or kidneys like most pharmaceutical drug products, making Cytopoint a safe choice for your dog.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Cytopoint to my pet?

Tell your doctor if your dog is pregnant or lactating. The safe use of Cytopoint in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs has not been established.

How should Cytopoint be applied?

Cytopoint should be administered subcutaneously by or under the direction of a veterinarian.

What are the potential side effects of Cytopoint?

Hypersensitivity reactions such as anaphylaxis (allergic reaction), facial oedema (facial swelling), urticaria (hives) may occur in rare cases. In such cases, appropriate treatment should be administered immediately.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Cytopoint?

One dose can last up to eight weeks, meaning your dog may be able to go as long as eight weeks between doses. Because every dog is different, your veterinarian, with your help, will monitor your dog during treatment and determine when the next dose is needed.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Cytopoint?

In case of adverse clinical signs after an overdose, your dog should be treated symptomatically.

What should I avoid while giving Cytopoint to my pet?

Cytopoint is not for use in pregnant, lactating, or breeding dogs.

What other drugs will affect Cytopoint?

Cytopoint can be used with many other commonly used medications and in dogs with other diseases. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your dog any other prescription or over the counter medications.
