Special warnings for each target species

In horses and Camels, dexamethasone should only be used at the beginning of the disease during laminitis.

See section “Use in the event of pregnancy, lactation or laying”.

Special precautions for use

I) Special precautions for use in animals

Administration of corticosteroids at the end of pregnancy may result in premature delivery or abortion in ruminants.

Except in the indications of acetonaemia and induction of parturition, the function of corticosteroids is to improve rather than cure. Therefore, it´s advisable to diagnose and treat the underlying disease. When used to treat shock, intravenous fluids should be administered to maintain circulation; An acid-base assessment must be carried out.

(II) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet.

Persons with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product.

Pregnant women should not handle this veterinary drug.

(III) Other precautions


Undesirable effects (frequency and severity)

In prolonged use, corticosteroids such as dexamethasone may cause iatrogenic hypercorticism, polyuropolydipsia (PUPD), immunosuppression, bulimia and redistribution of the body’s lipid reserves.

The use of corticosteroids in lactating cattle and goats may lead to a temporary decline in milk production.

Induction of parturition with corticosteroids may be associated with reduced progeny viability and increased incidence of placental retention.

Use in pregnancy, lactation or laying

Studies in laboratory animals have demonstrated embryotoxic effects.

The use of corticosteroids in pregnant females is not recommended except in ruminants to induce parturition during the last third of gestation.

Drug Interactions and Other Forms of Interaction

Because corticosteroids can reduce the immune response to vaccination, dexamethasone should not be administered at the same time as vaccines.

Concomitant use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may increase the risk of ulceration of the gastrointestinal tract.

Dosage and route of administration

Intravenous, intramuscular, subcutaneous, intraarticular or periarticular routes.

Species Dose (mg dexamethasone / kg)
