Product information

What is Dexamethasone used for in pets?

Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that can treat various conditions in cats and dogs, including allergies, skin disorders, and breathing problems. It also treats inflammation and suppresses the body's immune system. However, when prescribed by a veterinarian, dexamethasone should only be used in pets, as it can have serious side effects if not administered properly or taken for too long.

Can pets take Dexamethasone for humans?

Dexamethasone is a prescription-only medication licensed for human use but commonly prescribed to certain animals. Your pet can use Dexamethasone if it has been prescribed by a veterinarian. Always follow the veterinarian's instructions on dosage and administration.

What is the dosage of Dexamethasone for dogs and cats?

The dosage of dexamethasone for cats and dogs will vary depending on the condition being treated and the animal's size and weight. Pet owners must only give their pets the amount of dexamethasone prescribed by a veterinarian, as giving too much can have serious side effects. The average dose for cats for tablets is 0.5-3mg per pound of body weight every 24 hours. For dogs, the average dose is 0.5-2mg per pound of body weight every 48 hours. It is given orally or injected into the muscle. You must follow your veterinarian's instructions closely when administering dexamethasone.

If you notice any of these side effects, contact your veterinarian immediately.
