Immunotherapy

ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIES

Choose pet’s immunotherapy based on

the SENSITEST® results

Due to the specificity of SENSITEST® and the accuracy of the results, desensitization – or immunotherapy – is an effective therapeutic strategy recommended by the International Commission on canine atopic dermatitis (ICADA)1.

Currently, immunotherapy is the only treatment for the causes of allergies and not only its symptoms

When allergen eviction is impossible, treatment of symptoms leads to a lower quality or even duration of the animal’s life; immunotherapy is the best solution.

The percentage of animals responding favourably to desensitization is 70-80%. It will take some time before the treatment results are shown.

MODE OF ACTION

Immunotherapy involves gradually accustoming the body (the immune system) to the allergen(s) through the administration of increasing doses of this or these allergen(s) until the effective dose (one to which the immune response is normal) is reached.

Administration

Allergens are inoculated subcutaneously at increasing concentrations so that the animal’s immune system becomes accustomed and stops overreacting.

The injection, administered in the skin of the animal’s neck, is easy and painless.

The owner can safely make the injections on the advice of the veterinarian.
