cortavance spray 72ml
Cortavance is a veterinary medicine used to treat inflamed and itchy skin conditions in dogs. It is also used to treat symptoms of itchy skin in dogs prone to allergies (atopic dermatitis).
Inflamed and itchy skin conditions
For the treatment of inflamed and itchy skin conditions, a field trial compared the treatment of dogs with itchy skin conditions with Cortavance with treatment using a different steroid-containing product.
Fifty-four dogs were treated with Cortavance and 51 with the comparator, and the results indicated comparable efficacy between Cortavance and the comparator product.
In addition, studies to determine the dose generally supported the chosen dose and the length of treatment.
Significant improvement of the skin condition was demonstrated in several studies under controlled conditions, whereas significant reduction of itching was demonstrated in only one of these laboratory studies in which the dogs received treatment against external parasites at the same time.
Atopic dermatitis Two studies investigated the effects of the medicine in treating symptoms of atopic dermatitis. In the first study, 15 dogs received Cortavance and 13 dogs were given placebo (a dummy treatment), whilst in the second study 25 dogs were treated with Cortavance and 23 dogs with a comparator medicine.
The results of the studies showed that treatment of dogs with atopic dermatitis for at least 14 days and up to 28 days with the recommended dose provides significant improvement of skin lesions and pruritus.
