Monitor your dog’s itch and see how well CYTOPOINT™ is working
Keep track of your dog’s itch after the CYTOPOINT injection until your return visit to the veterinarian. This will help your veterinarian decide how often your dog will need to return for treatment.
Using the Itch Tracker, keep a record of how much your dog’s itching has improved. When you return to the veterinarian, bring along the chart and discuss the treatment results you have recorded. Be sure to mention when you noticed your dog’s itch became worse again.
WEEK 1: For the first week, rate your dog’s itching daily based on the itch rating definitions shown below.
WEEKS 2-8: Starting in the second week, rate your dog’s itch only once a week, on the same day of the week.
Place a dot in the appropriate column aligned with the number that best describes the dog’s itching. When the dots are connected, you and your veterinarian will see how your dog’s itching has decreased over the course of treatment and how long your dog’s CYTOPOINT treatment lasted.
