Percorten-V is used to treat Addison's disease (adrenocortical insufficiency) in dogs and cats. Addison's disease in dogs is also known as hypoadrenocorticism. It is a disease that results from the reduction in steroid secretion by the adrenal gland. Percorten-V is used as replacement therapy for the mineralocorticoid deficit in pets with Addison's disease. Mineralocorticoids are steroids that help balance the sodium, potassium, and other electrolyte levels in the body. Percorten-V also prevents the life-threatening shock and build up of potentially toxic substances in the blood in animals with Addison's disease. The most important effect of Percorten-V is to increase the rate of absorption of sodium and water by the kidney. The increased absorption of water into the blood stream helps maintain blood pressure. Another important effect of Percorten-V is increased excretion of potassium by the kidney into the urine. It's used in dogs and off-label in cats.
