Product Summary:

Percorten-V is effective in replacing the mineralocorticoid deficit in dogs suffering from primary hypoadrenocorticism (Canine Addison's Disease).
Percorten-V is a corticosteroid used to treat conditions in which the body does not produce enough of its own steroids. Percorten-V also helps prevent electrolyte disturbances, shock, and build up of toxic substances in the blood in animals with hypoadrenocorticism. Percorten-V also increases the rate of absorption of sodium and water by the kidneys which helps maintain blood pressure.
For use:
Dogs only
25 mg/mL
4 mL
Active ingredient(s):
desoxycorticosterone pivalate, methylcellulose, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, polysorbate 80 & sodium chloride
