Zycortal is a prescription injectable medication that contains desoxycorticosterone pivalate, a mineralocorticoid hormone used as therapy in the treatment of Addison’s Disease in dogs. This is a disorder that occurs when the body’s adrenal glands cannot produce enough cortisol or aldosterone, which control and regulate metabolism, immune response, and blood pressure. Zycortal works by replacing the hormone deficiency, and to reduce signs and symptoms of Addison’s. Zycortal may be prescribed by your veterinarian for long term therapy of Addison's Disease, or other disorders caused by mineralocorticoid insufficiency. Available in 4 mL bottle for injection.
