What is Cyclosporine? Cyclosporine (Modified) capsules are used for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in dogs, which is a non-contagious skin disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the skin. While it’s not approved by the FDA for cats, it is commonly prescribed by veterinarians to treat cats. Cyclosporine requires a prescription from your veterinarian. For: Cats (6 months or older and weighing 4 lbs. or more) Dogs (6 months or older and weighing 4 lbs. or more) Benefits: • Cyclosporine treats atopic dermatitis, which can come with any of the following symptoms: scratching, licking, chewing, skin infections, hair loss, bad odors, and sleepless nights • Safe and more affordable alternative to steroid shots How it works: Cyclosporine targets cells in the immune system that cause the allergic reaction in your pet. Dosage varies, and can taper off to fewer doses after several weeks. Consult with your veterinarian for specific treatment details.
