    Our lab has allergies with skin issues as well. We had tried Zyrtec, Benadryl, Prednisone and Apoquel without significant success. Our vet recommended trying the Cytopoint injection. He had his first one about 5 weeks ago and his second injection yesterday. We were incredibly surprised with how much his itching, sneezing and licking improved after the first injection. There was a straight week where we didn’t hear him sneeze, which was unheard of before. He would often wake us up in the middle of the night with his sneezing and scratching his ears. Prior to starting the Cytopoint we would constantly find new wounds/skin problems on our dog. Since we started the injections, we haven’t noticed a single skin issue (knock on wood). We’re very pleased with our early results.

    Our dog had been on 2 different Canidae formulas prior to his diagnosis, so we want to stay away from those. We chose the Kangaroo formula over the Venison because we are 100% sure he’s never been exposed to Kangaroo protein before. It’s possible that he’s had venison in treats at some point. We’re not opposed to trying the Venison as an option. He was on the Kangaroo formula after his IBD diagnosis and did very well on it until there was an unintentional dietary indiscretion. He has never found a food that he won’t eat so we’re lucky that he’s not picky.
