We have a new weapon in the war on allergies.
Among our patients, few problems are more common than allergies. We see dogs that are licking, chewing, whining and are miserable nearly every day in our practice. There is a good chance that you have a dog with one or more of these symptoms. From constantly licking the paws to scratching the ears, allergic dogs are generally very uncomfortable.
Safe and effective treatments for allergies have been slow to become available. A few years ago a new drug, Apoquel® became available. Today, there is a new injectable treatment that promises to be huge relief for allergic dogs. It is called “CADI” (caa-dee). This is short for Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic.
CADI is administered as a subcutaneous injection by a licensed veterinarian on the average once every 4-6 weeks during the seasons when a pet is experiencing allergies. Here are links to more information about CADI Injections.
