Prescription Atopica for Cats is prescribed for treating skin allergies in cats, or feline allergic dermatitis. This condition can cause painful lesions, itching, swelling, and infection, which are only exacerbated by a cats tendency to lick affected areas. The active ingredient in Atopica for Cats, Cyclosporine, works by suppressing the cellular response in the immune system that triggers itching and swelling on the skin. Because this prescription medication does not contain steroids, it can be used for long-term skin allergy treatment.
