What is Atopica?

Atopica (or cyclosporine A) is a pet prescription medication that can be prescribed by your vet for the treatment of itchy skin and ear conditions in dogs.

Atopic dermatitis, or atopy in dogs is similar to eczema in people and symptoms are generally first noticed when your dog is between one and three years of age, although in some cases, symptoms may even be noted in puppies. It is thought that as many as 1 in 10 dogs will suffer from atopy with varying degress of severity.

The symptoms of atopy can include itchy ears, chewing of the feet and the legs, an itchy groin, recurrent skin and ear infections. Animals may be affected in one or several regions of the body and the severity of skin disease varies considerably: some dogs become severely affected with widespread skin infections and significant hair loss whilst other dogs may develop mild seasonal skin irritation.

How does Atopica Work?

Atopica specifically targets the immune system cells involved in the allergic response. It contains cyclosporine A, an immunomodulator.

What can Atopica be used for?

Atopica is proven to significantly relieve itchy skin and studies suggest that it is highly effective and improves the quality of life for many dogs. In fact, the vast majority of pet owners would recommend Atopica to a friend. It is generally possible to reduce the dose of atopica as time goes by.

Atopica is only available on prescription and if you suspect your pet is suffering from atopy, it is important that you see your Vet who will be able to diagnose the condition and rule out other causes of skin irritation such as ectoparasites, infection or food allergies.
