Customer Question

Thank you for your help with Molly. Would you be able to provide some advice regarding her medications? She continues to take the same medications that you prescribed when you diagoned her condition. Her skin has been inflamed. We bathe her three times a week. Can we give her Atopica with her current medications? Thank you, ***** *****

Hello & welcome, Dennis. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

In regards ***** ***** question, we can use these drugs together with care. Azathioprine and Atopica are often used for conditions where we need immunosuppression (severe allergic skin disease could be a reason to). As well, Metronidazole is an antibiotic that has some immune modulating factors and therefore is often use with these as well. And while calcitriol isn't usually used for the above treatments effects, it won't interact with these. So, these are fine to use together as long as she tolerates them well. If she were to have any GI upset or dizziness, then her doses may need to be lowered or her medication plan amended to fit her tolerance.

Please take care,

Dr. B.

Hi Dennis Okane,
I'm just following up on our conversation about Molly. How is everything going?

Yes, ideally as long as the antibiotics are in use.
