Product Details

Generic Protopic  (Tacrolimus Topical)

Protopic ointment for dogs contains the active ingredient tacrolimus. Tacrolimus is an effective medication used in conjunction with other medicines for individuals that have received a heart, kidney or liver transplant. This ingredient prevents rejection of the organ. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), tacrolimus works by decreasing the activity of the immune system to prevent it from attacking the new organ.

Although no one is quite sure how the active ingredient in protopic ointment works for dogs with skin conditions, this immunosupressant helps reduce itching, redness and inflammation of the skin. The ointment may be prescribed to help ease symptoms associated with a number of autoimmune and immune-mediated skin disorders.

Other less serious skin conditions that may benefit from the use of protopic ointment include eczema and rashes. Protopic ointment is recommended for short term use only, and in most cases it is used only as a second option after other ointments fail to relieve symptoms. Animal studies suggest that prolonged use of tacrolimus is associated with an increased risk of conditions such as skin malignancies, lymphomas and infections.
