Quercetin is a natural pigment found in a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, such as apples, broccoli, berries, and more. This pigment (also known as flavonoid) is a powerful antioxidant that is blowing away scientists worldwide and making us wonder: could this be the allergy relief, so many dogs need and deserve?
Many dog owners who have tried Cytopoint felt blindsided by the side effects they didn’t expect. The official information from the pharmaceutical company differs greatly from the users’ experiences, and it’s reasonable to ask how is that possible? Why were there reactions in the placebo group to begin with? There are several lenses through which we can examine the safety of Cytopoint, but let’s start with the infamous clinical trial.
Since this mushroom’s effects can be observed very quickly after taking it (thanks to the quick absorption of the antioxidants into the system), dog owners with reservations about putting their dogs on anti-allergic medication finally have another option. Traditional medication for allergies has several serious side effects that compromise the dog’s health long-term, especially when taken consistently. Reishi is a safer, natural alternative for managing allergic flare-ups.
Gabapentin is not FDA-approved for veterinary use. There is no regulation for this drug when it comes to administering it to dogs. Some veterinarians are prescribing gabapentin precisely because of the side effects, such as sedation. Dogs are given gabapentin before a stressful situation, such as traveling or a vet visit. The owners don’t realize that the sedation is actually a side effect of a strong drug that is normally given to epileptic patients.
