If your dog has Addison’s Disease, or hypoadrenocorticism, your veterinarian may prescribe Percorten-V. This injectable medication replaces steroids that your dog needs so she can enjoy a happier, healthier life. This medication may also be prescribed for cats.
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, she can develop hypoadrenocorticism, commonly called Canine Addison’s Disease. Prescription Percorten-V is a long-acting injectable corticosteroid that helps replace the mineralocorticoid your dog needs for a healthier system. This medication is shown to have few side effects. Percorten-V only needs to be administered every several weeks according to your veterinarian’s instructions.
