My 7-8 yr. old black lab/hound mix rescue has mite allergies all year. The vet didn't want him on prednisone all the time due to complications with prolonged use. She suggested Cytopoint, and I didn't do any research before the first shot. That was about a month ago, and since then, my dog has had an infection in both ears and a large abscess on his behind. I told the vet we wouldn't be doing anymore shots, and we're back on a low dose of prednisone every other day. I feel lucky that he's alive and wish I had read this forum first. I worry that there will be more complications from Cytopoint before it's out of his system. I believe his immune system was compromised by it.
