Description

Cyclosporine (Generic) Modified Capsules for Dogs are a prescription medication used to treat certain immune-mediated disorders in dogs, such as atopic dermatitis (skin allergies) and perianal fistulas. Cyclosporine is an immunosuppressive agent that works by suppressing the immune system's response, reducing inflammation and symptoms associated with immune-mediated disorders. The modified capsules are designed to release the medication slowly, providing a steady level of medication in the dog's system. Cyclosporine (Generic) Modified Capsules for Dogs are available in various strengths and are typically given orally once or twice a day, as directed by a veterinarian.

Key Benefits:

  • Immunosuppressive Agent: Cyclosporine is an immunosuppressive agent that helps reduce inflammation and symptoms associated with immune-mediated disorders in dogs.
  • Slow-Release Formula: The modified capsules are designed to release the medication slowly, providing a steady level of medication in the dog's system.
  • Prescription Medication: Cyclosporine (Generic) Modified Capsules for Dogs are a prescription medication and should only be used under the guidance of a veterinarian.
  • Dosage: The dosage of cyclosporine varies depending on the dog's weight, condition, and other factors. It is important to follow the veterinarian's instructions carefully.

Indications:

Cyclosporine (Generic) Modified Capsules for Dogs are indicated for the treatment of certain immune-mediated disorders in dogs, including atopic dermatitis (skin allergies) and perianal fistulas. These conditions are characterized by an abnormal immune response that leads to inflammation and other symptoms. Cyclosporine works by suppressing the immune system's response, reducing inflammation and alleviating the symptoms associated with these disorders. Cyclosporine (Generic) Modified Capsules for Dogs are available in various strengths and are typically given orally once or twice a day, as directed by a veterinarian.

How it works:

Cyclosporine (Generic) Modified Capsules for Dogs work by suppressing the activity of the immune system. In immune-mediated disorders such as atopic dermatitis and perianal fistulas, the immune system becomes overactive and attacks healthy tissues, leading to inflammation and other symptoms. Cyclosporine inhibits the production of certain proteins called cytokines, which play a key role in the immune response. By suppressing cytokine production, cyclosporine helps to reduce inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of immune-mediated disorders. The modified capsules are designed to release the medication slowly, providing a steady level of medication in the dog's system to maintain its effectiveness over time.
