Quick Reference Guide
Below is a quick reminder of the key things you need to remember about Vetoryl® treatment.
- Give Vetoryl® capsules in the morning with food so that they can be easily absorbed. This also allows your veterinary surgeon to carry out monitoring tests at the appropriate time of day.
- Take your dog back to your veterinary surgeon for regular monitoring.
- Note your dog’s weight, water consumption, appetite and frequency of urination before treatment so you can monitor its improvement once treatment starts. Contact your veterinary surgeon if you have any concerns.
- Contact your veterinary surgeon immediately if your dog stops eating, drinking or urinating or becomes unwell while on Vetoryl® treatment.
- Wash hands after using Vetoryl®.
- Book follow up appointments with your veterinary surgeon every three months so that progress can be assessed.
- You might like to consider taking a photo before you start treatment - improvements such as hair regrowth, or the loss of a pot belly occur gradually so are less noticeable on a daily basis.
- DO NOT split capsules.
- DO NOT handle if pregnant or trying to conceive.
- DO NOT change your dog’s dose without advice from your veterinary surgeon.
Ensure you continue giving your dog the prescribed dose of Vetoryl® every day. Even if you notice dramatic physical improvements to your dog’s health - for example your dog’s appetite is back to normal or your dog is no longer incontinent - this does not mean that you should stop treatment. Vetoryl® will curb the excesses associated with the overproduction of cortisol but it will not cure the disease.
Monitoring is important and regular checks performed by your veterinary surgeon will ensure your dog continues to get the best possible care.
Remember to book follow up appointments with your veterinary surgeon every three months so that progress can be assessed. This is all the more important since:
- Other underlying diseases can be better prevented and detected.
- Your dog’s medication might need to be adjusted.
- You will be able to share any concerns about your dog’s health.
- Potential side effects can then be averted.
