Leflunomide (Generic) Tablets for Cats and Dogs

Leflunomide is a medication that acts as an immunomodulator, or a substance that will affect how the immune system functions. Leflunomide works by inhibiting the production of T-cells and B-cells which are a part of the immune response. Sometimes, overproduction can occur without the need for the production of these cells. Overproduction can lead to inflammation and destruction of healthy tissues.
