Henry’s serious face belies a lovely and happy nature. He is seen here in one of his calmer moments after bounding into the clinic to greet us, prior to his monthly immunotherapy injection.
Immunotherapy, often referred to as desensitisation, is the closest thing to a cure for canine allergic dematitis. Immunotherapy is a well-established treatment and involves the administration of gradually increasing doses of allergen extracts over a period of weeks, given to patients by injection. After the initial induction course injections are administered monthly.
Although not effective in all cases, many patients like Henry benefit significantly from this therapy and we are delighted that his itching and skin lesions are much better on this treament.
