Atopica is available in soft gelatin capsules that are orally administered as a daily dose. Atopica is best given on an empty stomach – either 1 hour before a meal or 2 hours after a meal. If a dose is missed, do not give Atopica more than once in a day. If the dog responds positively to the treatment, the vet would reduce the dosage. Tablets are available in various strengths of 10 mg, 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. The normal dosage for dogs is 5mg/kg/day as a single daily dose for one month.
