It is an injectable for use as replacement therapy for mineralocorticoid deficiency in dogs with primary hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s Disease).
Desoxycorticosterone is a corticosteroid with primarily mineralocorticoid activity, similar to aldosterone. In the kidney, desoxycorticosterone causes sodium and chloride ion retention, and hydrogen and potassium ion excretion, creating an osmotic gradient that promotes water absorption from the renal tubules. This increases extracellular fluid volume, leading to blood volume expansion, improved venous return to the heart, and increased cardiac output.
