At Raritan Animal Hospital we strive to bring you the newest advances in veterinary medicine. In keeping with that goal we are excited to highlight a few new products that have been added to our shelves this year.
GALLIPRANT (ELANCO) Click Here for Product Website
What makes this product exciting is that it helps pets suffering from osteoarthritis by targeting the receptors responsible for pain and inflammation. Galliprant is able to do this not only more precisely than previous OA medications but it is also able to do so more safely. Clinical studies have shown Galliprant to be safe for long term use with no clinically significant changes in liver, kidney or coagulation parameters and is suitable for use in dogs as young as 9 months of age.
Canine Atopic Dermatitis:
CYTOPOINT (ZOETIS) Click Here for Product Website
Cytopoint is an injectible medication that targets and neutralizes a key itch-inducing cytokine associated with atopic dermatitis. Cytopoint injections begin working on day 1 and can provide up to 4-8 weeks of relief. It is a biological therapy- a type of non-pharmaceutical treatment that works like your dog’s immune system. Because Cytopoint is a biological therapy and not a drug, it is naturally broken down and recycled by the body. It is not eliminated from the body via the liver or kidneys like most pharmaceutical drug products. This is one of the reasons Cytopoint can be a safe choice for your dog.
