Calling All Itchy Dogs!

Swartz Creek Veterinary Hospital is evaluating a new treatment for itching in dogs.  If your dog has non-seasonal itch and is not currently on medication, they may qualify for the new study.  If your dog does qualify, your pet will be treated with a drug to evaluate decreased itching,  have a free analysis of blood and urine, and you will earn a $200 in-hospital credit.

The drug being evaluated is an injection that may reduce itching for 1 month.  The drug has been through safety trials and no adverse effects have been seen.  We will check blood work and urine prior to administration of the drug.  Your pet will need to come in for an examination at four and six weeks after administration of the test drug.  We will check blood and urine at your six week visit, also.  All parts of the trial must be completed to receive the $200 in hospital credit.

If you are interested, please contact Swartz Creek Veterinary Hospital at (810) 635-4015.  Dr. Pinkston, Dr. Cocagne or one of their staff members will be happy to discuss the trial further with you.  You can also contact us by email at swartzcreekvet@swartzcreekvet.com.
