Your dog will begin Vetoryl® at the recommended starting dose dependent on its bodyweight. You should then make an appointment for your dog to see your veterinary surgeon after 10 days. Your dog should be regularly examined and monitored using blood tests.
Your veterinary surgeon will assess your dog’s response to Vetoryl® treatment by:
Looking for an improvement in clinical signs
Performing blood tests
In most cases you can expect to see a decrease in your dog’s appetite and the amount they drink within the first couple of weeks on treatment. Other clinical signs may take 3 to 6 months to improve.
The results of routine blood tests and an ACTH stimulation test are used to assess the effectiveness of Vetoryl® treatment at 10 days, 4 weeks, 12 weeks and every 3 months after starting treatment.
Your dog should be closely monitored in the early stages of therapy so that the dose of Vetoryl® can be adjusted to meet its specific needs. This also helps to minimise the risk of sideeffects or complications that could be harmful to your dog.
Once your veterinary surgeon is happy with your dog’s progress, it is strongly recommended that you visit your veterinary surgeon every 3 months for regular monitoring so that dose adjustments can be made as required.
