I don't know if it would be considered hot spots or just atopic dermatitis. We have doctored with a specialist for 5 out of 6 years of Casey's life. Shots every 21 days, meds and the last thing we tried was Atopica capsules which made Casey deathly ill after 13 days of pill taking. I have taken him off Atopica, and considering taking him off the shots as the serum is composed of everything he is allergic to. The specialist said to feed him WELLNESS dog food, which we do, but I have run out of ideas and I believe the doctors have too. Does anyone have any words of wisdom to help us. I would sincerely appreciate any and all advice. Thanks.

The vet is recommending I start Casey on Atopica pills for Atopica dermatitis. He has been on monthly shots and meds since he was 1 year old. Casey pulls his rear end fur out whenever possible - moreso in summertime. He has been on steriods which made him gain weight. I would like info from others about how this program ATOPICA has or has not worked for your pet. This program will be between $400 and $600 monthly with 2 pills daily. If this program works as described, Casey should eventually be weaned to two pills per week. Please send me your reply asap if you can help me make a decision as to whether or not to put Casey on this program. Thanks.
