      Atopica?

      My vet just prescribed Atopica for hepatitis. Does anyone have expierence with this drug. The information I found on line is scary.

      I am glad we were able to get off it. Any powerful drug is scary. Oban was on it for itching and that turned out to be a gut issue, which we were able to clear up and now manage with TCM, acupuncture and cold laser. We switched to a Holistic/Integrative Vet. Oban was only on Atopica for three summers, no signs of damage from it.

      Is there any concern over negative effect on liver? I read about drug, and it scares me. I gave 1 capsule to Honey, and she vomited the next morning.

      Have you thought about a second opinion? I would also be a little nervous about this drug.

      Yes, my regular vet said he would not give drug. Too many terrible side effects.
