Cortavance is a modern, potent, and well tolerated topical glucocorticoid especially suited for the treatment of allergic skin conditions in dogs. Cortavance can be used on small or large lesions (up to one-third of the body surface area). Cortavance controls inflammatory and immunological reactions in skin, leading to regression of signs (erythema, oedema, cell infiltration) and associated sensations (itching, pain).
