My dog's allergies are sustainable with this product
My 6 year-old Shih Tzu uses Atopica to sustain his allergies. Without this product, he is always itching, scratching, and his skin was always pink. This product won't cure your dog of ALL allergies, but it definitely helps them maintain their allergies.
My only gripe is that these pills are expensive. Luckily VetDepot supplies Atopica for less than the other major online pet stores. Their customer service is great too; they are quick to send notice out to you if there is a problem with your order (this happens frequently with lag time hearing back from your vet regarding submitting prescription approval).
sustained allergies w/this product
My dog has been using Atopica for about 6 years now. It's like doggy allergy crack medicine. This stuff works when you are consistent with giving it to your dog every day. You can try to slowly wean them off of the product, but sadly they'll depend on it to sustain their comfort level.
You should know that while Atopica isn't going to completely cure your dog of allergies, it will allow them to be at a more comfortable level with less pinkness and suffering.
My vet jokes that my dog is the longest standing doggy citizen on this product. It hasn't had any negative side effects on him (and he does blood work every 6 months to check). This is also the reason why the product requires a vet's approval!
The product itself is expensive, a one month supply being about $50. But rest assured that VetDepot is one of online sites selling this product for the most competitive price out there.
