Cyclosporine (Modified) Description
Nearly every breed of dog will have a skin allergy in their life time, but those allergies can easily be controlled or even prevented. Cyclosporine (Modified) helps to treat the skin disease atopic dermatitis found in dogs, which can cause skin allergies and hair loss, as well as heavy scratching and licking. The medicine is FDA-approved and is a safe treatment for skin allergies even in dogs as young as six months old. It is also sometimes prescribed by veterinarians for treatments in cats.
Cyclosporine (Modified) is an immunomodulator that works on the cells that causes allergic reactions in dogs. This oral capsule can easily be dispensed in wet food or hidden in a dog treat. Instead of taking your dog to get a steroid shot, Cyclosporine (Modified) is a less intrusive and less expensive option, and is just as effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indiana Generic medicine
Cyclosporine has helped our dog maintain his functions without any side effects and being the generic version of Atopica it's much more affordable

Rated 3 out of 5 by Reese Atopica the Brand name works better
Have been using Cyclosporine (modified) for the past several months. I noticed my dog is scratching again and licking his paws, which is an indication that is is not working as well as the Atopica which is the brand name and not modified. Both products are extremely expensive. Atopica more so, and that is why I was using Cyclosporine, but will have to go back to Atopica, which is really expensive.
