Atopica dosage scheme: Body weight of dog Number of capsules given to obtain recommended dose Atopica 10 mg Atopica 25 mg Atopica 50 mg Atopica 100 mg 2 to < 3 kg 1 capsule 3 to < 4 kg 2 capsules 4 to < 7.5 kg 1 capsule 7.5 to < 15 kg 1 capsule 15 to < 29 kg 1 capsule 29 to < 36 kg 3 capsules 36 to 55 kg 2 capsules Atopica will initially be given daily until a satisfactory clinical improvement is seen. This will generally be the case within 4 weeks. If no response is obtained within the first 8 weeks the treatment should be stopped. Once the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis are satisfactorily controlled the preparation can then be given every other day as a maintenance dose. The veterinary surgeon should perform a clinical assessment at regular intervals and adjust the frequency of administration to the clinical response obtained.
In some cases where the clinical signs are controlled with every-other-day dosing the veterinary surgeon can decide to give 25mg Atopica every 3 to 4 days. Adjunct treatment (e.g. medicated shampoos fatty acids) may be considered before reducing the dosing interval. Treatment may be stopped when the clinical signs are controlled. Upon recurrence of clinical signs treatment should be resumed at daily dosing and in certain cases repeated treatment courses may be required.
25mg Atopica should be given at least 2 hours before or after feeding. Insert the capsule directly into the dog's mouth.
