QUESTION
Can my dog take this for Addison's Disease instead of the monthly shot?
ANSWERS (1)
The most commonly prescribed oral tablet for Addison's disease is fludrocortisone. You can discuss using this tablet as opposed to Percorten-V, which is what I believe you are now using, with your veterinarian.
