Powerful glucogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, anti-shock activity. Its actions are very similar to prednisolone, but the activity is approximately 5 - 8 times greater. Unlike prednisolone, its mineralocorticoid activity is minimal. Its anti-inflammatory effect is particularly potent, 30 times more than cortisone. Because of this activity dosages are significantly reduced. Absorption is rapid (20 minutes after intramuscular injection). Its activity lasts about 48 hours, although it is mostly excreted 24 hours after injection.
An anti-inflammatory and glucogenic steroid injection for use in horses and cattle.
