Triamcinolone Acetonide Tablets are indicated in the management and treatment of acute arthritis and allergic and dermatologic disorders. Triamcinolone is a highly potent synthetic glucocorticoid and anti-inflammatory agent for treatment of inflammation and related disorders in dogs and cats.
The Triamcinolone Advantage
Triamcinolone is a highly effective anti-inflammatory for dogs and cats exhibiting fewer sodium-retaining effects while providing comparable anti-inflammatory effects as older corticosteroids.
Triamcinolone Acetonide Tablets are supplied in 0.5mg 1000’s and 1.5mg 500’s.
Do not use in viral infections. Except for emergency therapy, do not use in animals with tuberculosis, chronic nephritis, cushingoid syndrome and peptic ulcers. Existence of congestive heart failure, diabetes and osteoporosis are relative contraindications.
Because of its inhibitory effect on fibroplasia, triamcinolone may mask the signs of infection and enhance dissemination of the infecting organism. Hence, all animals receiving triamcinolone should be watched for evidence of intercurrent infection.
CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
The initial suppressive dose level of 0.5mg/10lbs-1.0mg/10lbs of body weight daily should be administered until a satisfactory clinical response is obtained, a period not to exceed 14 days. As soon as the satisfactory response is obtained, the daily dose should be reduced gradually. See package insert for complete information.
