A dietetic complementary feed to help cats and dogs suffering with allergic skin conditions has been launched.
Dechra Veterinary Products has added Redonyl Ultra to its dermatology range for use as part of a multimodal approach to support skin function in cases of dermatosis and excessive hair loss.
The company said Redonyl Ultra’s skittle capsules contain essential fatty acids, palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) and biotin, which are balanced to support the physiology of the skin barrier.
PEA is a naturally occurring biomodulator with scientifically proven activity against the mechanisms contributing to inflammation and pain, while biotin is important for synthesis of fatty acids and support of optimal skin condition.
Dechra brand manager Claire Morgan said: “Redonyl Ultra is a great addition to Dechra’s extensive dermatology range that allows a holistic approach to treatment, control and maintenance of dermatological conditions.
“Allergic skin conditions are among the most common causes of skin and ear disease in cats and dogs, and it is estimated up to 15% of dogs are affected by atopy.
“In situations where an allergen cannot be avoided, multimodal therapy is useful to control the clinical signs.”
The product comes in a convenient bottle size of 60 skittle capsules, in 2 strengths for different sized animals. The capsules can be opened and given with food or ingested directly, or swallowed whole for flexible administration.
