HATCORT- MP (METHYL PREDNISOLONE )
1. Give oral products with food.
2. The goal is to find the lowest dose possible and use for the shortest period of time.
3. There are many side effects, especially when the drug is used long term. The most common ones seen after starting therapy include greater appetite, thirst, and need to urinate.
4. In dogs, stomach or intestinal ulcers, perforation, or bleeding can occur. The risk for this occurring is increased if used with drugs like aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (eg, carprofen), or other cortisone-like drugs (eg, prednisone). If your animal stops eating, develops a fever, black tarry stools or bloody vomit (looks like coffee grounds), contact your veterinarian immediately.
5. Do not stop therapy without a veterinarian’s guidance, as serious side effects could occur.
