Fludrocortisone Compound Basics

Fludrocortisone compound treats hypoadrenocorticism. Hypoadrenocorticism, or Addison’s disease, is an autoimmune disease that destroys the outer layers of the adrenal gland. These layers are responsible for producing vital hormones that include cortisol and aldosterone. Fludrocortisone replaces aldosterone to help the kidneys balance the concentration of sodium and potassium in your pet’s body. This compound is an extra-label drug used when the adrenal gland has lost the ability to produce cortisol and aldosterone.

Fludrocortisone requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available in a capsule and a tiny tablet.

Our pharmacists specially formulate all PetMart Pharmacy compounds to meet the needs of your pet. Please contact us if you need another form, strength, or flavor of this compound. All compounds ship within 1 day of preparation according to their specific temperature requirements.

Give as directed by your veterinarian, and follow all instructions printed on the prescription label. Complete the entire prescription unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Give with food. Do not stop giving fludrocortisone suddenly.
