I have used Cortavance once a day for 10 days on my dogs interdigital cysts, as advised. They have not got worse but sadly there is no improvement.

55 Best service ever

By on 21 December 2021

This product was out of stock at my vets. I tried a different supplier and was simply told “ out of stock - don’t know when it will be back in stock “. Rang viovet just before closing (sorry) and the lady told me that it was out of stock but new stock would be in on Tuesday and I could receive it on Thursday.She then talked me through uploading a prescription. Wonderful customer service. The product itself is brilliant and has helped my poodle with his ear problems.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Cortavance Spray for Dogs, including answers from our team.

Lip Fold Dermatitis


Can this be used to treat lip fold dermatitis?

  • VioVet Staff

This is a prescription medication that is licensed for use for the following:

  • Symptomatic treatment of inflammatory and pruritic dermatoses in dogs

  • Alleviation of clinical signs associated with atopic dermatitis in dogs.

It contains a steroid that may assist in treating lip fold dermatitis by reducing inflammation and itching but it will not treat any infectious components of the dermatitis. It should only be used alongside advice from your prescribing vet, as it is a prescription only medication, so it is therefore advised to discuss this further with them.

Dog itchy paws


If sprayed on dogs paws does it affect if licked

  • VioVet Staff

If the product is licked off immediately after application then it will have no effect. You should prevent your dog licking the area upon application. As a steroid medication it should then help prevent your dog's need to lick the area itself. This is a prescription only medication so you should follow your vet's dosing advice closely and discuss any issues with them.

How to use over fur, ensuring it makes contact with skin.


I've thoroughly read the literature on this product - however, as my dog has red itchy skin on his skull mostly from where his ears attach and a lesser amount on the top of his head (he has no fur loss whatsoever) how do I spray this from a 10cm distance to make sure it makes contact with his affected skin and doesn't just sit on his fur? I understand that I need to cover his ears and eyes and will be extremely careful, but I'm just not sure how to make sure this makes contact with his affected skin. Thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

Cortavance is a prescription only product, your vet will have prescribed this to you so I recommend discussing this with them. The product should only be used at 10cm distance to ensure that skin coverage is at the correct levels and not excessive, however medications like this can be used off license if needed. Your vet can advise on off license use of the medication.

Fay Clark

Can this be use to help itchy skin on a 3 years old dog who has dust mite allergy and storage mite allergy?

  • VioVet Staff

Cortavance is indicated for use in 'symptomatic treatment of inflammatory and pruritic dermatoses in dogs.' This includes reducing itching from allergic skin disease. It should only be used alongside advice from your veterinary surgeon as it is a prescription product.

Antoinette Ellis

Hi can this be used on 12 week old puppy.? Thankyou

  • VioVet Staff

It is recommended not to use steroids on dogs less than 7 months old. However it is up to your vet to assess the risks against the benefits of using this spray on a puppy- sometimes it is the right thing to do.

Hair Loss


Can this spray cause hair loss ? We have been using this product on an off for a while now and have noticed patches have started to appear. Thanking you once again in advance

  • VioVet Staff

This is not a side effect usually associated with Cortavance spray or one that I have seen before. Presumably your dog has itchy/inflammed skin which is why you are using the spray? Is it possible your dog has rubbed the hair out due to itchiness? That said any dog can react differently to anything so it is not impossible that the spray is causing the hair loss. It may be worth your vet having a look to try to determine the cause and prevent any further patches appearing.

My dog got sore paws and her genitals area can I spray on them as well


I have cortavance cutaneous spray for my dog for her paws. her bum and genital area is sore as well can I use the spray for them parts as well.

  • VioVet Staff

Usually this is acceptable but you should check with your own vet first, just in case the problem there is different in some way.

Can this product be used on cats?


In the absence of anything else, could this product be used on cats?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is only licensed for dogs. This means that it cannot be used for cats unless there is no suitable licensed product. If your vet considers that this is the best product for your cat then under the "cascade" system your vet can prescribe it. We need the written veterinary prescription before we can supply it.
