Thanks for posting the thread MMM on Atopica.

There seem to be pretty mixed reviews by users though. Some say it worked wonders, others had alot of problems with the side effects. Every dog will react differently, so I suppose I won't know how Furby will react to it until I try it.

I talked to my vet yesterday about Atopica. She recommended it over the injections from the lab I had the allergy panel done at. Said it would cost around $2 a pill. So if I started him out on 1 a day and then eventually worked it down to a maintenance level, it may not be too expensive in the long run given that he is a small dog.
