Itchy Dog?

By February 14, 2017Uncategorized

Having an itching and scratching dog can be a nightmare. Not only is the scratching annoying but can cause secondary skin infections by breaking down the skin barrier.

There have been amazing advancements in treating itchy dogs. Who would have imagined that there is a drug that literally shuts down the brain trigger that causes itching! It exists. It gets better. A drug was very recently released that is considered a ‘biologic’ and not a pharmaceutical. Biologics are an expanding and exciting new way of treating conditions while not causing new problems and issues like immune suppression and are not eliminated and/or processed by the kidney and liver. This particular biologic targets a very specific protein that has been identified to cause itching. These drugs are especially great for dogs with other conditions like kidney or liver problems.

For more information regarding these treatments please contact the clinic to make an appointment.
