Percorten-V for Dogs

by Elanco Animal Health
  • Percorten-V for Dogs 25 mg/ml 4 ml - Item # 783RX

Percorten-V (desoxycorticosterone pivalate) is used as replacement therapy for the mineralocorticoid deficit in dogs with primary adrenocortical insufficiency (Addison’s Disease). Canine Addison's Disease (hypoadrenocorticism) is a condition in which a dog's adrenal glands aren't working properly. Adrenal glands produce chemicals and hormones that help regulate many bodily functions such as metabolism, blood pressure and stress response. Percorten-V contains 25mg/ml desoxycorticosterone pivalate, which is recognized as having the same qualitative effects as the natural hormone aldosterone. The beginning dose may be recommended at 1 mg per pound of body weight every 25 days. Percorten-V increases the rate of sodium absorption and enhances potassium excretion. Percorten-V also increases extracellular fluid volume, which expands blood volume and improves the venous return to the heart and cardiac output. This effect prevents the life-threatening hypotensive shock and prerenal azotemia observed in animals suffering from hypoadrenocorticism. Desoxycorticosterone pivalate.

Percorten™-V is on manufacturer backorder. The manufacturer has not provided an availability date for this product.

Like Percorten™-V, Zycortal® is also labeled to treat Canine Addison’s Disease. The main difference is that Zycortal® is labeled to be administered subcutaneously (under the skin), whereas Percorten™-V is labeled to be administered intramuscularly.
