Drug & Food Interactions

Before giving Dexamethasone, talk to your veterinarian if the pet is being given any other oral steroid medications, such as prednisone, prednisolone, methylprednisolone or others. Tell your vet if the pet is being given furosemide, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as carprofen, deracoxib or etodolac. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with dexamethasone. Talk to your vet before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines.

Precautions

Animals receiving Dexasone Sav should be under close observation. Because of the anti-inflammatory action of corticosteroids, signs of infection may be masked and it may be necessary to stop treatment until a further diagnosis is made. Overdosage of some glucocorticoids may result in sodium retention, fluid retention, potassium loss, and weight gain.https://kihorsemed.com/
