Your dog was very handsome Suzan, condolences for your loss, I can't even imagine how you're feeling. I made sure my husband knew about the dangers of this shot, so our dog is never permitted to take it from any vet. Thanks for sharing your experience....very sad.

I lost my 10 year old dog today. After receiving his 5th cytopoint injection.
Suddenly became sick, diagnosed with autoimmune disease. I left him at the vet overnight for blood transfusion. I visited him today and he was almost gone. The transfusion unfortunately did not help and he has to be laid to rest. I wish I had read about the horror stories sooner about Cytoppint and I hope this can save someone elses pet.

Suzan and Mandy, I send you both my heartfelt condolences. I feel for you. I hadn't heard of Cytopoint, so resorted to search engines. Apart from numerous mentions of the manufacturer and claims that Cytopoint has been tested and allegedly "found safe in tests with beagles".....the main independent assessments of its safety are on this forum. So, Suzan and Mandy, let us hope that the suffering of your beloved dogs has not been in vain, thanks to this wonderful forum! I hope that this page will be often consulted, so that the caretakers of dogs will be forewarned of the obvious dangers.

Suzanne I just severed the exact same laws as well as timeline. My boxer was nine years old and up around her hip shot suddenly developed an immunity. I suspect side of points despite how good it was for her allergies. It is really important to contact the manufacturer and provide marketing experience

I just experienced the same loss. On her fourth or fifth. It did wonders for her allergies, but she suddenly succumbed to auto immune disease as well. Please! Anyone who has this ...or any other negative experience, you MUST report to the manufacturer. They may not have seen these side effects in their clinical trials. But often, new issues become apparent after more animals are exposed. I am heartbroken, and will report so others will be spared if Cytopoint is the cause.

Many dogs that do survive suffer as long as they get the shots. Some people say they were afraid their dogs were going to die because of this. All I can think while reading these horror stories (especially the ones that end with dogs dying) are, "Why did the FDA approve Cytopoint?" and, "Why is it still on the market?" If it happened to me I would have filed a class-action lawsuit against Zoetis.

Hi, can those of you that have experienced IMHA due to the Cytopoint injection please help me and share your experience? Our sweet dog, Max, had his third Cytopoint injection three weeks ago and is now in the ICU having a blood transfusion due to IMHA.

Last week (2 weeks after the injection) he started acting lethargic, no appetite, no enjoyment in any of his usual actives... I took him to the vet on Friday and they thought he had IMHA and wanted me to bring him back in a week for a re-check.. On Tuesday he seemed worse so I took him to another vet for a 2nd opinion, they confirmed the IMHA and had him administered to an emergency clinic for a blood transfusion.

He had the transfusion last night/this morning and even though his red blood cell numbers have dropped since the transfusion a couple hours ago, they are still in the healthy amount (for now). I've been reading a lot online the last few nights and noticed that others have gone through similar situations following Cytopoint.

I'm so sad and angry and wish I had read more about Cytopoint and that we had never given him this shot. For those that have experienced this, can you please help and let me know if you have any recommendations and what to expect. I'm hopeful since his numbers are good right now, but don't know if other dogs experienced the same and then crashed (and needed another transfusion) or died shortly after. Thank you SOOO much in advance. brsommer@aol.com
btw... our vet filed a claim yesterday with Cytopoint and they said they aren't aware of their drug causing IMHA but would pay $3k in vet bills. That made me even more furious..... why would you offer to pay vet bills if your drug isn't responsible.

My dog is going through something very similar after taking the 2nd Cytopoint injection. How is your dog doing now?
