Logo atopicaAtopica® and Neoral® represent a relatively new approach for Atopic pets. Novartis released these two drugs for treatment of atopy and other skin problems in pets. Claims of 80-90% cure rates for atopic dogs have been made.

Neoral® and Atopica® have become the treatment of choice for Atopic dogs and German Shepherds suffering from peri-anal fistulas.

Like in humans, atopic dermatitis results from a hypersensitivity to environmental allergens like pollen, house dust mites and mould. It’s a lifelong disease that can be controlled but not "cured," much like eczema in people.
