  • Q:

    What sort of "capsules" is the budesonide put into?  What are they made out of?
    Asked on 3/14/2015 by kareninca from Stanford, CA

    • A:

      Budesonide is a glucocorticoid, most commonly used to treat inflammatory intestinal diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in small animals. VetRxDirect can compound several different strengths of budesonide capsules using budesonide USP powder. The capsules used by VetRxDirect are gelatin based medication capsules that are commercially available from our supplier.

  • Q:

    Our IBD dog is extremely sensitive to sugars; even small amounts cause flares.  I see that Entocort contains "sugar spheres."  Is it possible to have it budesonide compounded with no sugars?  We are assuming that cellulose is okay.
    Asked on 2/26/2015 by kareninca from Stanford, CA

    1 answer

    • A:

      VetRxDirect is able to compound several different strengths of budesonide capsules. Entocort is a commercially available human use capsule that contains the medication budesonide, which is surrounded by a sugar based outer coating to slow the release of the budesonide medication. VetRxDirect does not use Entocort to compound prescriptions for budesonide capsules. A commercially available micronized budesonide powder, which does not have the outer sugar coating, is used when compounding. Microcrystalline cellulose is utilized in the compounding process to act as an inert filler in capsule creation. Compounded budesonide capsules are available by prescription only. Contact your veterinarian to see if the budesonide compounded capsules available thru VetRxDirect, would be an option for the treatment of your dog’s IBD.

  • Q:

    My dog's is currently being treated for IBD with budesonide and I am noticing his coat is thinning. He is a Boston Terrier so it is particularly noticable; is there something I can give him to help with this?
    Asked on 11/14/2013 by Azuree

    1 answer

    • A:

      Azuree,

      The thinning of the dog’s coat is a possible adverse effect of budesonide treatment so it is recommended to have the dog seen by the veterinarian. There are supplements marketed for coat health but the choice of product would be best recommended by a veterinarian.

      Thank you,
