    New Treatment for Canine Atopic Dermatitis

    Friday, February 24, 2017

    If your dog is constantly itching, scratching or chewing because of its allergies to pollens, molds or dust mites, we now have a new biologic therapy that targets itch at its source. It’s called CYTOPOINTTM — it is an injection that starts working within one day and helps provide relief of the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis for four to eight weeks.

  • Bravecto

    Friday, February 03, 2017

    It has come to our attention that the monthly oral flea and tick product for dogs, Bravecto, has recently received some bad press. News articles and social media have indicated that the product is responsible for the deaths of many pets.

    When these stories are run, they focus more on fear than facts. A similar thing happened with the product Trifexis a few years ago. In order to truly determine what caused the deaths of those pets, diagnostic testing and necropsies (autopsies) should have been performed to confirm the cause of death. They were not.

    The truth is that millions of doses of this product have been consumed. Less than 0.01% of these have reported of any ill effects. The most common side affect of Bravecto is gastro intestinal upset, which is on the label.

    While ANY medicine comes with potential side effects, we have found Bravecto to be a safe, effective product to protect your pets from fleas and ticks. We are committed to providing your pets with the best care and products available. We will still continue to recommend and sell Bravecto.
