243603 kitten i love cat and dog

Atopic dermatitis is an allergic skin syndrome characterized by itchy and inflammed skin, and ranks second in skin problems behind flea allergies.  Atopic dermatitis in cats is an allergic reaction to a substance that is inhaled, such as dust or pollen.  Cats become extremely itchy, and will scratch or lick themselves excessively to find relief.

The pharmacists at Bayview Pharmacy have the ability to compound certain medications for your cat.  These medications will be custom dosed based on your cat's weight and symptoms, and may come in the following forms: flavored treats, flavored suspensions, flavored capsules, transdermal gels, and injection solutions to name a few.

A veterinarian might prescribe any of the following medications to be compounded for a cat with atopic dermatitis:

Cyclosporin A

Prednisolone
