Atopica Capsules for Dogs
Atopica capsules contain Ciclosporin. This medication is licensed for the treatment of chronic manifestations of atopic dermatitis in dogs.
Ciclosporin (also known as cyclosporin) is a selective immunosuppressor. It exerts anti-inflammatory and antipruritic effects in the treatment of atopic dermatitis.
Available in 4 different strength capsules: 10mg, 25mg, 50mg, 100mg.
This is a prescription only medication and must be used as directed by the prescribing veterinary surgeon.
Clinical signs of atopic dermatitis such as pruritus and skin inflammation are not specific for this disease and therefore other causes of dermatitis such as ectoparasitic infestations, other allergies which cause dermatological signs (e.g. flea allergic dermatitis or food allergy) or bacterial and fungal infections should be ruled out before treatment is started. It is good practice to treat flea infestations before and during treatment of atopic dermatitis.
Available in 4 capsule sizes:

25mg capsules containing Ciclosporin for dogs weighing 4-7.5kg
