Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic

For Use in Dogs Only

Cytopoint™ aids in the reduction of clinical signs associated with atopic dermatitis in dogs.

Cytopoint™ is a ready-to-use, sterile liquid containing a caninized monoclonal antibody (mAb) against interleukin-31 (IL-31). IL-31 has been shown to induce pruritus in dogs in laboratory studies.

Cytopoint™ remains in circulation for several weeks. It exerts a therapeutic effect by binding to and neutralizing soluble IL-31, thus inhibiting pruritus and reducing skin lesions. Like other naturally-occurring antibodies and antibody-antigen complexes, elimination is via normal protein degradation pathways.

SAFETY: A field safety study has demonstrated that Cytopoint™ is well tolerated in dogs after subcutaneous injection. Adverse events occurred at a similar frequency between treated and placebo groups in a study of 245 canine patients presented to veterinary hospitals and diagnosed with atopic dermatitis. In this study, dogs were administered Cytopoint™ (1.0-3.3 mg/kg body weight) or placebo by the subcutaneous route on Days 0 and 28. Signs of patient discomfort on administration and adverse events occurred at a similar frequency between treatment groups. In addition, there was no clinically important difference in clinical pathology changes between groups following either dose. A wide variety of concomitant medications were safely used, including parasiticides, antibiotics, antifungals, corticosteroids, vaccines, immunotherapy, antihistamines and other antipruritics, such as oclacitinib and cyclosporine.

This product is sourced in the United Kingdom and is intended for use in the United Kindgom only.

Never looked back since using this. Brilliant for my dog.

55 itchy skin, continuous scratching
Verified Purchase

By on 15 December 2021

I have used Apoquel tablets but the dose allowed for her weight only barely controls the scratching. Cytopoint is very expensive but only stops the scratching for 5 weeks, which it does completely.

45 Only thing that helps
Verified Purchase

By on 5 December 2021

We were at a loss after trying endless treatments and medications for my dog who suffers with allergies. Our vet suggested we try cytopoint, and although it doesn't completely stop his allergies it's made a massive difference to his outbreaks. He used to regularly come out in so many sores and lose so much fur that he looked a real sorry state and the only thing that cleared them up was antibiotics which wasn't ideal. He now still gets slight outbreaks but few and far between and he doesn't lose his fur anymore.

How much to buy and how long does it keep?

Sarah St Bernard

My St Bernard weighs 64.9 KG so what volume of drug do I need to purchase?

If I have to buy more than required to give at one time will the excess keep in a temperature controlled environment?

Will a refrigerator, at 4 degrees, be a suitable storage place?

  • VioVet Staff

This is a prescription only medication so you will need to chat to your prescribing vet to see if the product is appropriate for your dog.
According to the datasheet a 64.9kg dog will need 1 x 30mg and 1 x 40mg vial injected per dose. This product must be stored between 2 and 8C, these are refridgerator conditions so storing in a fridge is fine. Our temperature controlled packaging ensures the medication will arrive temporarily within these storage conditions, it can then be stored in the fridge until the product expiry date as per the bottle itself.

My Bichon has been on Apoquel for months now it is working out expensive. My vet has suggesed Cypopoint does this work? Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Cytopoint is indicated for the treatment of pruritus associated with allergic
dermatitis and the treatment of clinical manifestations of atopic
dermatitis in dogs. All medications that are licensed for use in animals have passed their marketing authorisation and so will have been proven to work effectively in their target species. Some of this research from the datasheet is pasted below:

In a laboratory model study lokivetmab demonstrated an onset of
efficacy for pruritus by the first time point at 8 hours post

In field studies up to 9 months, treatment of dogs with atopic
dermatitis was demonstrated to have a favourable effect on the reduction
of pruritus and on the reduction of disease severity as evaluated by
Canine Atopic Dermatitis Extent and Severity Index (CADESI) 03 scores. A
small number of dogs showed a low or an absence of clinical response to
lokivetmab. This is likely due to the highly targeted mechanism of
action of lokivetmab in the context of a complex disease and
heterogeneous pathogenesis.

Opinions on this product


Can anyone who has used this product please give some input was it effective how often do you use etc. My dog has been on Apoquel for last 18months between 4/6 tabs daily as she is 74 kg. Was recommended this instead of apoquel so would like some feedback from people who are in similar situation

  • VioVet Staff

I am Nick, one of the vets here. I have used this product in clinical practice on patients and I can confirm it is very effective at reducing the itch response in dogs affected by allergic or atopic dermatitis. If your dog is on Apoquel for allergies then it will have a very similar effect as it acts on a similar neural pathway. Cytopoint does not have anti-inflammatory affects like Apoquel though, it is worth discussing with your vet which would be most appropriate for your pet.

Cytopoint price

Mark Pordage

I have noted that the cytopoint pack comes with 2 vials. Is the prices per vial or pack? My dog is approx 50-60Kg so would need to be administered 2 vials

  • VioVet Staff

The price for this product is for a pack of 2 vials. It is not per vial, it is per 2 pack of vials.
Please let us know if you need any help with ordering these from us.

Dosage help


Hi, my shihtzu is 7kgs what would be the appropriate
amount to purchase? The vet has used Cytopoint on him for years but keeps changing the dosage. I also find it isn’t as effective as before& with age( he’s 13 now) the itching has become worse and the shot only lasts 3-4 weeks . Would you advise a higher quantity? Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

The doseage for cytopoint is based on the weight, I have pasted the advised doseage from the data sheet below:

CYTOPOINT strength (mg) and number of vials to be administered
Bodyweight (kg) of dog 10 mg 20 mg 30 mg 40 mg
3.0 - 10.0 1
10.1 - 20.0 1
20.1 - 30.0 1
30.1 - 40.0 1
40.1 - 50.0 1 1
50.1 - 60.0 2
60.1 - 70.0 1 1
70.1 - 80.0 2

I recommend following your vets advice closely on this as they will be aware of other factors involved in the doseage decision.

Please advise what else I need to buy in order to administer this medication.

  • VioVet Staff

You will need a needle and syringe to inject this product, as it must be injected subcutaneously. I strongly advise discussing this with your vet so they can show you how to administer the product safely. If you have done this and would like specific needle/syringe sizes then please email your animal details (breed, weight) to [email protected] so we can recommend appropriate sizes.

Expiry date


My dog doesn’t need to take monthly as her allergies are seasonal, what is the length of the expiry dates? How long can I keep cytology in my fridge before needing to use?

  • VioVet Staff

The expiry date varies depending on what stock our wholesaler send us. The last order of Cytopoint 10mg we dispatched had an expiry of 15months from now. This length of expiry is pretty standard for this product but unfortunately we cannot guarantee specific expiry dates as this is allocated upon dispatch.
Once a vial has been breached then it must be used immediately, however the product is dosed using whole vials so this is not an issue. The box the product comes in can be opened and this does not affect the expiry.

Janet Townsend

Do you just inject it under the skin

  • VioVet Staff

Cytopoint must be injected subcutaneously, I recommend contacting your vet for them to direct you on how to do this. It is important this is done safely as adverse reactions can occur if the product is not injected safely in this way.

Cytopoint - Stored at refrigerated temp during transit

Vikki Everett

I’m interested in purchasing Cytopoint, however, it’s supposed to refrigerated. At what temperature does your packaging maintain whilst you post to your customers please? And what temperature are the manufacturers recommenced guidelines?
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Our temperature controlled packaging ensures refridgerated temperatures of 2 to 8 degrees celcius are maintained for up to 24 hours, and in most cases to 48 hours. All our cold items are delivered by courier within 24 hours so the medication is safely transported. This meets the data sheet storage requirements.
