Trilostane to treat Cushing's Disease in dogs
While Cushing's Disease can cause a host of symptoms in your dog like hair loss, a pot-bellied appearance, weakness, increased thirst or appetite, Vetoryl 120 mg, 30 Capsules can help treat them. Cushing's Disease (hyperadrenocorticism) is caused by the excessive production of cortisol by the adrenal glands. Vetoryl can help control the gland's production, and it has fewer reported side effects than Mitotane (Lysodren).
Vetoryl is designed to be given to your dog for life. If you discontinue use, the clinical signs of Cushing's Disease will return. This medication allows you to easily treat your dog's symptoms with a once daily pill.
Be sure to follow your veterinarian's instruction regarding the proper doses of Vetoryl. The following table gives the starting doses, but your veterinarian will recommend adjustments based on how your dog responds to the treatment, the severity of the disease, and other factors. Tell your veterinarian about any other pet medications and supplements your dog is taking before starting them on Vetoryl Capsules.
||10 mg once daily
||30 mg once daily
||60 mg once daily
||120 mg once daily
||180 mg (1 x 120 mg & 1 x 60 mg) once daily
Ten days to two weeks after starting Vetoryl, your veterinarian will perform more tests including an ACTH stimulation test. Once the tests are complete they will advise you on how to continue your canine companion's treatment.
