This webinar discusses allergen immunotherapy and how and why it works. You will learn for which patients (and owners) this is the right kind of therapy and how to choose the allergens for the extract.
There are different types of immunotherapy, conventional subcutaneous injections, rush immunotherapy, intralymphatic and sublingual immunotherapy and we will discuss the evidence, advantages and disadvantages of all those. Owner compliance is very important to achieve the reported success rates of allergen immunotherapy and I will give you tips on how to increase this compliance. Adapting the protocol to the individual patient is crucial for the best possible outcome in many dogs and cats – we will discuss how to do just that and optimise your chances of long-term owner satisfaction.
