Atopica for Dogs

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

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.

I have a very elderly cat - 18 - and a year ago she became very thin and couldnt keep anything down. The vet recommended trying Royal Canin Feline Sensitive wet food and it literally saved her life! I immediately started buying it from Pet Drugs online and it brought her back to full health within a month or two and even a year on she's extremely well for 18 and her joints are so much better - she can once again jump up on a chair and tear around like a kitten. To me this proves how much rubbish there is in other cat food products. Pet Drugs online supply high quality foods. I now regularly buy the Royal Canin wet food in packs of 48 from Pet Drugs online who give a fantastic service - speedy delivery and much cheaper than buying from the vet!
