Is your dog itchy?  If so, read on... we're so excited to offer this new therapy for dogs with allergies!

We are happy to announce that we now offer a new therapy that helps reduce the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis in dogs. This will help restore the quality of life for both your dog and you.

Canine atopic dermatitis  is one of the most common allergic skin diseases of dogs.  Like human allergies, it can be triggered by seasonal pollen, food allergens, or other airborne allergens; it is not curable. It may be caused by factors such as your dog’s genetics, immune system problems and allergens in the environment. Over time, atopic dermatitis can worsen. Your dog’s skin can become extremely itchy, red, scaly and irritated. If your dog is not treated, there is a risk of hair loss and skin infection.

Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic (CADI) is a new therapy that helps reduce clinical signs of atopic dermatitis so your dog can stop scratching.  It is a new type of medication called an antibody therapy, designed to target the itch at its source. It mimics the natural immune system of your dog to help neutralize the main cause of itch in atopic dermatitis. Canine Atopic Dermatitis Immunotherapeutic is a once-monthly- injection given in our office. It helps offer safe, sustained relief of itch and clinical signs of atopic dermatitis. It reduces itching within one day of injection, controls itching for one full month, and improves skin condition caused by atopic dermatitis.

If you feel your pet may benefit from this injection, please call our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Finan. Let us help get that itchy skin under control.

Is your fluffy cat feeling heftier every time you pick her up? Maybe it’s time to feed her meals on a set schedule instead of “free choice feeding,” having food out at all hours. Free choice feeding has been associated with overweight cats in some studies. And if she won’t eat her breakfast at the designated time, she’ll have to wait for dinner. 


We are excited to join the Darien community and are looking forward to meeting you and your furry companions!  Finan Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing caring, compassionate veterinary care to your pets.   We understand that you care for your pets as part of your family, and as veterinarians we strive to do the same.   Dr. Finan and the staff at Finan Animal Hospital believe that an educated pet owner is invaluable.   Our goal is to keep your pet healthy by helping you fully understand your pet’s needs.

We hope you’ll find the following sets us apart from other animal hospitals:

  • We are a paperless practice.  All our medical records are computerized which allows for easy record keeping and is more environmentally friendly.
  • We know you’re busy- call and schedule a drop-off appointment.
  • Our brand new hospital is clean, quiet, and stocked with state of the art equipment.   You’ll find digital radiography, in-house lab equipment and fully equipped surgery and dentistry suites.

We hope to form a life long relationship with you and your pets!
