Allergy “Ouch” Shots replaced by Sublingual Delivery. Clinical results demonstrate Doggy GOO’s ™ 100% Natural, Pet / Pet Owner-Friendly, proprietary sublingual delivery is Equally Effective to Canine Immunotherapy SHOTs.
As millions of sneezing, itchy eye and congested Americans will tell you, it is allergy season. But what many people do not realize is that Dogs suffer from Environmental Allergies too. And while allergy medications do offer short term relief from constant paw chewing, incessant itching, biting, scratching, skin and ear issues; they are not without their health short comings and only fool the body into believing that there is No Problem, with symptoms only to reemerge when the medications wear off, creating an endless No Win Cycle of Misery for Pet and Pet Owner.
Most physicians and veterinarians and clients are familiar with Subcutaneous Immunotherapy, or “Allergy Shots,” for treating allergies. This method of immunotherapy has dominated the human and pet allergy field in the United States for more than 50 years. Human and canine allergy shots are time tested and offer the only therapy option which is actually drug free, treats the underlying cause of the allergic disorder, stops the progression of allergy, and neutralizes the disease at its source. But, as anyone will tell you, no one likes shots, especially Dogs. It is because of the “Ouch Factor” that subcutaneous immunotherapy translates to less than a 30% completion rate for humans; for dogs, it is most likely even less.
But fortunately for humans and dogs alike, there is a New, human-friendly and pet-friendly method of immunotherapy delivery, called Sublingual Immunotherapy ( SLIT ). Sublingual Immunotherapy is a method of allergy treatment that introduces allergy extracts into the body via the thin mucosal barrier of the mouth. From there, they are absorbed directly into the blood stream, avoiding “first-pass” liver metabolism and prompting a reduced underlying immune system sensitivity to offending allergens.
Recently, several major “Human” medical organizations have critically reviewed the evidence of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) DROPs and have published statements supporting the clinical efficacy and safety of this treatment. A very exciting immunotherapy development for Allergy Parents with Allergy Children.
Unfortunately for Dogs and their Pet Parents, there have been virtually no studies in veterinary medicine, which explore / prove if Sublingual immunotherapy delivery works, Until NOW !
It seems, that the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, the Dermatology / Allergy Clinic has been working to discover if SLIT is effective for Atopic Dermatitis (AD) – the very common, itchy skin disease of dogs that is caused by allergies. In fact, Allergy accounts for the Top 3 Health Issues seen by Veterinarians.
Toward this goal, UW-Madison Veterinary Dermatologist Dr. Douglas DeBoer presented preliminary study abstract results at the 24th Annual Congress of the European College of Veterinary Dermatology, which indicated that Sublingual Immunotherapy delivery is not only Pet Friendly and well-tolerated, but also produces approximately the SAME improved allergy response rate, if not Faster, than those expected from conventional “Allergy Shots” in the immune-neutralization of Dust Mites in trial Dogs.
For Dr. Kristin Holm, Veterinary Dermatologist and Medical Director for Healthy GOO, this is good news. “In my practice, I have long recognized that the majority of animal illnesses and health challenges have their basis in some sort of immune irregularity, with the most common immune imbalance being environmental allergies, i.e. atopic dermatitis. I also know that while Allergy Shots Do Work, because pet owners are required to administer their dogs’ allergy shots, together with the “Ouch Factor”, many pet owners simply do not take advantage of this therapy. For me, this has always been a major source of Frustration,” explains Dr. Holm. “When Stephen approached me with his concept for a canine immune system health supplement, which uses pet-friendly and pet owner-friendly sublingual delivery to build immune system tolerance to environmental allergens, I was immediately interested “.
To address this suffering canine population, Healthy GOO, an innovative pet healthcare company, introduces its Veterinary Dermatologist-Formulated, Doggy GOO ™. Doggy GOO ™ is the first-ever, premium canine immune system health supplement that sublingually leverages the adaptive abilities of the dog’s immune system to build immune system tolerance to common Pollens (grasses, trees, and weeds), Mites and Mold Spores. It also simultaneously targets, supports and balances the Innate, Acquired and GUT Tiers of the Dog’s immune system. And best of all, the “GOO” in Doggy GOO™ is 100% Natural Peanut butter and sublingually GOO- Licious !
Dr. Holm states “A dog’s immune system is capable of defending and fighting off most of what life throws at it every day. But, Mother Nature can always use a little extra DoggyGOO help. With these preliminary clinical results demonstrating the Clinical and Pet-Friendly Effectiveness of Sublingual Delivery, we are excited to offer Pet Owners a Pet Friendly, 100% natural Allergy Care Option before they consider cyclosporine, steroids, or even shots”.
