Vetoryl (Trilostane) capsules - 30 count, various strengths
FOR VET AT YOUR DOOR CLIENTS ONLY (we must have seen your animal in the last 12 months).
VETORYL Capsules are available in 3 sizes (10, 30 and 60 mg) for oral administration based on body weight. Trilostane (4α, 5α-epoxy-17β-hydroxy-3-oxoandrostane-2α-carbonitrile) is an orally active synthetic steroid analogue that selectively inhibits 3 β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in the adrenal cortex, thereby inhibiting the conversion of pregnenolone to progesterone. This inhibition blocks production of glucocorticoids and to a lesser extent, mineralocorticoids and sex hormones while steroid precursor levels increase.
Why Vetoryl Capsules?
Contain the active ingredient trilostane.
Trilostane blocks the excessive production of cortisol by reversibly inhibiting the action of the enzyme 3-ß hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase.
While treatment with trilostane significantly reduces serum cortisol concentrations, it has not been found to reduce aldosterone significantly.†
