Atopica for Cats is an immunosuppressant drug used in cats and dogs. It treats animals suffering from autoimmune disorders, including atopic dermatitis, immune mediated hemolytic anemia, perineal fistula, and rejections after organ transplants. This medication affects calcium-ion uptake in lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are the white blood cells responsible for the body’s immune system response.

For:

Cats (at least 6 months of age and weighing at least 3 pounds)

Benefits:

  • Controls feline allergic dermatitis
  • Significantly reduces itching and skin lesions
  • Comes in an easy-to-administer liquid formulation and includes oral syringe
  • Most cats find the taste acceptable, but can be mixed with food

How it works

Atopica for Cats is an oral solution that works by calming and soothing allergic skin conditions such as feline allergic dermatitis. It contains cyclosporine which stops the itching by blocking white blood cells from organizing and responding to infection. The oral solution is usually very well tolerated by cats and becomes easily absorbed in the intestinal tract.

Storage:

Should be stored at room temperature. Keep away from other pets and children.
