Atopica Capsules are a treatment for dogs to relieve itchy skin caused by chronic manifestations of atopic dermatitis.

Atopica 10mg Capsules (15 Capsules)

Supplied in packs of 15 x 10mg capsules.

Atopica is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received. Please follow the instructions given by your vet.

What is Atopic Dermatitis? Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common skin diseases in dogs. It is a genetic, predisposed inflammatory which causes the skin to develop hypersensitivity to environmental allergies. Typical allergens that can cause this disease is house dust mites, pollen, mould spores and occasionally foods.

There are breeds of dog which are more likely to be affected. These are:

. Terriers; especially west highland white terriers and staffordshire bull terriers

. Boxers

. Labrador retrievers and golden retrievers

. German shepherds

The first signs of atopic dermatitis will be between the first 6 months and 3 years of your dog's life. It causes pruritus (severe itching of the skin) but initially, there will be no signs of lesions. When the lesions are visible, they will start at friction areas or skin folds.

Atopica is supplied in 10mg, 25mg, 50mg and 100mg capsules and sold in packs of 15. The 10mg and 50mg are a yellow-white oval capsule and the 25mg and 100mg are a blue-grey oblong capsule.

The recommended dose is 5mg per kg bodyweight (detailed dosing shown below):

2-3kg - 1x 10mg

3-4kg - 2x 10mg

4-7.5kg - 1x 25mg

7.5-15kg - 1x 50mg

15-29kg - 1x 100mg

30-35kg - 3x 50mg

36-55kg - 2x 100mg

Initially, Atopica will be given daily until clinical improvements are seen. This normally happens within 4 weeks. Once the dermatitis has been satisfactory controlled, the dose can be dropped to every other day. In some cases, the dose can be dropped again to every 3/4 days. 

Atopica should be given at least 2 hours before or after feeding. Insert the capsule directly into the dog’s mouth.

Once the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis are satisfactorily controlled, Atopica can then be given every other day as a maintenance dose. In some cases where the clinical signs are controlled with every-other-day dosing, your vet can decide to give Atopica every 3 to 4 days.

Do not use in dogs less than 2kg in weight or less than 6 months of age.

Efficient service


A really great company, price is excellent, service is good and delivery is brilliant


Great price. Delivery a little slow but in no rush so happy with purchase. Thank you.


The website is easy to use and uploading prescriptions is easy too. My dog's medicines are far cheaper here than getting them from my local vet. They are always delivered promptly even though I choose the free postage and packing..


Very good service,fast delivery will use again.

love using pet drugs online competitive prices fast delivery cant fault them


Great service arrived quickly, easy to use website.


Could do better, ordered food and supplements on Sunday, expecting delivery next day. Apparently, small print says next day only if weekday order. Had to leave work early to collect from a courier's drop off point that closed at 6! Only to discover no supplements! Had to chase with company and it was then delivered a few days later by post. Have used before for medications, they've been good, hopefully this is a blip. Suggest make things clearer on website re deliveries, times, split etc.


Easy to use site, products just what I needed with free speedy delivery and no struggling with heavy bags plus far cheaper than my local vet. (Must check prescription charges on next visit to enable me to buy more from Pet Drugs.) What more could you want so please keep up the good work.


speedy delivery, and always cheaper. Always use Pet Drugs Online. Recommended by my vet.


Easy to order and delivered quickly


Very good service
