Atopica 100 mg, 15 Capsules (1010977)
Atopica 10 mg, 15 Capsules contains a modified, oral form of cyclosporine that treats certain allergies and atopic dermatitis caused by common allergens like pollen or dust mites. Four different strengths:10 mg, 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg to treat dogs of all sizes and over 6 months of age.
My dog has been on these pills for awhile for her severe allergies. They make a huge difference. She doesn't scratch as much and her skin doesn't stay constantly red. Since the pills are so expensive to buy at the vet I decided to order from VetDepot and am very pleased with the customer service I received.

Mixed Results but Worth a Try
Our 5y (she was 3 at adoption) female rescue Golden is allergic to grass. It's gotten worse over 2 years. Major itching, especially chin & feet. Nothing provided relief except steroids and we don't want a young dog on Pred for life. We put her on Temaril P (which still contains 2 mg of Pred per pill) and even that lost effectiveness. The initial 30 days on Atopica at 100mg daily worked great. At every other day, she still needs Temaril P but only 2 per day. We tried Nizoral on the off days but she lost nose hair and was a bit lethargic. We're still playing with options and may add a 50 mg dose on the alternate days. She tolerates the Atopica well - no issues. She's been on it for 7 months.
ONLY choice for me!
I have been using Atopica for about a year now. The real proof is the before and after pictures. My dog scratched all of her fur away and ripped off her ear from scratching so much. With Atopica use, although she LOVES when we pet her, she no longer has any skin issues. The hair has all grown back. She is comfortable. She's our best friend!
Our Pitt mix has many skin allergies. We are finally able to wean her off of Prednisone after giving this medication three months to do its thing. It's worth the wait.
