Dermatitis ATOPICA by Novartis

More than 7 million dogs in the United States suffer from atopic dermatitis, making it the most common allergic skin disease affecting dogs. Atopic dermatitis results from a hypersensitivity to common environmental allergens such as pollens, molds and dust mites. It affects dogs of all ages, but usually starts in the first three to five years of life.

Atopica by Novartis

Atopica is a new therapy for the control of atopic dermatitis, the most common allergic skin disease in dogs. Unlike other frequently prescribed products, ATOPICA selectively targets certain specific immune cells responsible for the dog’s allergic response.

How ATOPICA Works:s:
ATOPICA is a new therapy that differs from traditional therapies. While those therapies may provide quick relief, some can cause numerous side effects, especially after they’ve been given for an extended period of time. Side effects develop because steroids affect many different organs. ATOPICA, on the other hand, inhibits activation of certain specific immune cells involved in the allergic reaction.
