Persistent, progressive weight loss may result in hepatic lipidosis; monitoring of body weight is recommended. For use only in cats. Wash hands after administration. People with known hypersensitivity should avoid contact with Atopica. Do not use with other immunosuppressive agents. It is important for cats to avoid exposure to Toxoplasma gondii during treatment.
