Despite the fact that the FDA has not approved Cyclosporine for use in cats, veterinarians frequently recommend and prescribe it for this purpose. Blood levels are normally not monitored when used to treat atopic dermatitis. The major factor is the drug's concentration in the skin. The amounts of cyclosporine in the skin of the animal cannot be measured. Variations in blood level estimations might be caused by the laboratory that processes the test. In cats, the lowest daily blood level should be 250ng to 1,000ng/mL, and in dogs, it should be should be 100ng to 500ng/mL. Cyclosporine levels in the blood are usually measured on the first or second day of treatment, and then every 2 to 4 weeks after that. Because a single oral dosage does not dependably produce a predicted blood level, regular monitoring is advised. Atopic dermatitis in dogs should be treated once a day for the first several days, then decreased to every other day (or even less often). Depending on the disease being treated, give one or two doses every day.
