Solu-Delta

Anti-Inflammatory Steroid Pet Medications

Solu-Delta Cortef is for use when a rapid anti-inflammatory or adrenal glucocorticoid effect is necessary. The medication is used to treat shock, allergic reactions, overwhelming infections, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions.

Solu-Delta Cortef is a rapid-acting anti-inflammatory medication used to treat lameness associated with arthritis. It is also used in the treatment of carpitis, tendinitis, bursitis, and other conditions. In some cases, treatment results in permanent cessation of symptoms. In other cases, symptoms may recur and treatment may need to be repeated.

Benefits of Solu-Delta:

  • Works within seconds to prevent cell and tissue damage
  • Water-soluble to ensure maximum effectiveness and speed
  • Helps minimize lameness associated with arthritis
  • Useful for carpitis, myositis, bursitis, and tendinitis
  • Beneficial as supportive therapy for rattlesnake bites, eye inflammation, stress-induced exhaustion, toxemia, and other conditions
  • Has greater anti-inflammatory and glucocorticoid activity than hydrocortisone
  • Has less sodium-retaining and potassium-losing effects than hydrocortisone
