Without Artuvetrin!

The hyposensitization attempt did not work

Kumi has been without Artuvetrin for about 6 months. Still I do not notice any difference compared to when she was on the treatment. Artuvetrin is used for Hyposensitization. However not all dogs respond to it and it works differently than when on humans.

I did make the choice to not continuing with the treatment for Kumi though I could not see that she was better from the symptoms during 4 years of treatment. I took the chance to try and see if she could stay the same, be worse or even be better if I stopped the treatment. The risk was if she would be worse, I had to start all over again with the treatment.

Luckily, she has not been worse these 6 months but at the moment she has got some wounds at her paws. That is as usual. Every spring and autumn she’ll get eruption due to increasing pollen or mites levels but also when she goes into maturity season and the hormone increases.  She gets some Cortavance at her wounds and more care and love at the moment!

My name is Lina Johansson and I live in Sweden. I have had Akitas since the year 2006. At the moment I own three Akitas - Ninjo, Kumi and Naomi. I am very found of Akitas and I really want them to be a healthy and great family member. Why not also in the future a dog that you can use for tracking, hunting, guarding or any other useful work! That will make them even more valuable for us! Let us work together! Kind regards Lina
