Except for emergency therapy, do not use in animals with chronic nephritis and hyper-corticalism (Cushing’s Syndrome). Existence of congestive heart failure, diabetes, and osteoporosis are relative contraindications. Do not use in viral infections during the viremic stage.
Because of the anti-inflammatory action of corticosteroids, signs of infection may be hidden. It may therefore be necessary to stop treatment until diagnosis is made. Overdosage of some glucocorticoids may result in sodium and fluid retention, potassium loss, and weight gains.
In infections characterized by overwhelming toxicity, DSP therapy in conjunction with indicated antibacterial therapy is effective in reducing mortality and morbidity. It is essential that the causative organism be known and an effective anti-bacterial agent be administered concurrently. The injudicious use of adrenal hormones in animals with infections can be hazardous.
Use of corticosteroids, depending on dose duration and specific steroid, may result in inhibition of endogenous steroid production following drug withdrawal. In patients presently receiving or recently withdrawn from systemic steroid treatments, therapy with a rapid acting corticosteroid should be considered in unusually stressful situations.
Care should be taken to avoid accidental self-injection.
