What is Percorten-V for Dogs?

  • Percorten-V is a prescription injectable corticosteroid that helps replace your dog's deficient mineralcorticoids.
  • Your dog’s adrenal gland helps regulate many key levels in the body including potassium, sodium, and electrolytes.
  • When the adrenal gland stops producing the steroid your dog needs to manage those levels effectively, your dog can develop hypoadrenocorticism, commonly called Canine Addison’s Disease.
  • Percorten-V, containing the hormone replacement Desoxycorticosterone Pivalate, replaces some of the missing stress hormones your dog needs.

Why do dogs use Percorten-V?

  • If your dog has Addison’s Disease, or hypoadrenocorticism, your veterinarian may prescribe Percorten-V.

What else should I know about Percorten-V?

  • Treats Addison’s Disease in dogs and cats.
  • Discard within 4 months after opening.
  • For dosing, needles and syringes without needle (to use with any needle) are sold separately. Consult your veterinarian for the appropriate sizes.
