Much like unwelcome guests, these allergies often arrive unannounced, making themselves known through relentless scratching, persistent gnawing, and the undeniable discomfort etched on our furry friends’ faces.

The Swift Savior: Apoquel

With its lightning-quick action, Apoquel acts like a superhero, providing relief from allergic reactions and itching within hours:

The Prolonged Protector:


Cytopoint adopts an alternative approach than apoquel and offers prolonged relief:

The Canine Connection

Our dogs aren’t just pets. They’re the wagging tails that greet us at the door, the warm bodies that snuggle with us on cold nights, and the furry confidants who listen without judgment.

This stuff works. If not for these pills, my dog would eat herself during the summer. PetCare saves me $$ on this medication. Thanks.

Review: Killed my dog

User: Steve

My Boxer got the Cytopoint injection
Within 2 days he lost the use of his left leg, but it did come back. His health steadily went downhill.
2 weeks after the injection we were at the vet with him staggering and slobbering profusely, and all indicators were he was ok, that night I was at the Emergency vet, he had peed the bed, and could barely walk, again all indicators were he was ok IE blood tests and scans.
He was diagnosed with a possible inner ear infection.
2 days later he took his last steps, which began a week of basically hospice care. All the while thinking it was vertigo.
3 weeks to the day after he got the injection he passed in his sleep.
I strongly believe Cytopoint took his life.


Rated: 5/5

Conclusion: A New Era in Canine Comfort
