Atopica 100mg / ml Cats 17ml
Symptomatic treatment of chronic allergic dermatitis in cats.
Atopica 100mg / ml is a medication for the symptomatic treatment of chronic allergic dermatitis in cats.
Active substance: Cyclosporine 100 mg
Cyclosporine exerts anti-inflammatory and antipruritic effects in the treatment of allergic and atopic dermatitis.
Allergic dermatitis in cats can have several manifestations, including eosinophilic plaques, abrasions on the head and neck, symmetrical alopecia and / or miliary dermatitis. The clinical signs of allergic dermatitis, such as itching and skin inflammation, are not specific to this disease. The other causes of dermatitis, such as ectoparasitic infestations or food allergies, should be evaluated and eliminated, whenever possible. A good practice is to treat flea infestations before and during the treatment of allergic dermatitis. A thorough clinical examination should be performed before treatment. The immune status of cats in relation to FeLV and FIV infections should be assessed before treatment. Any type of infection must be properly treated before starting treatment. Infections that occur during treatment are not necessarily a reason for discontinuing the veterinary medicinal product, unless the infection is severe.
The efficacy and safety of cyclosporine has not been evaluated in cats less than 6 months of age or in cats weighing less than 2.3 kg.
Posology and route of administration:
The recommended dose of cyclosporine is 7 mg / kg body weight (0.07 ml oral solution per kg) and should initially be administered daily. The frequency of administration should be subsequently decreased depending on the response.
