Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate)
What is Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate) used for?
Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate) is a topical spray prescribed to treat inflammatory skin conditions affecting dogs. The medication operates by preventing the action of certain chemicals in the body that cause pain, irritation, and swelling to stop them from occurring. Your veterinarian may also recommend its use to treat other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate)?
Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate) should be used according to your veterinarian's instructions to get the best results from treatment. The spray is normally applied to the affected areas of skin once or twice each day depending on your pet's health, the condition being treated, and the severity of its symptoms. When applying the spray pull back the animal's fur to reveal the skin, apply the solution directly to the skin, and allow it to be absorbed. Do not apply the medication too closely to any mucous membranes such as the eyes, nose, or mouth as this may cause unexpected health problems. It is also important to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water after each use to prevent it from contacting your own skin or mucous membranes.
What are the side effects of Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate)?
Most pets will not experience side effects after having Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate) applied. Stop using the spray and contact your physician immediately if you observe any worrying symptoms occurring such as severe weakness, intense vomiting, diarrhea that is watery or bloody, seizures, or signs of an allergic reaction such as hives, swelling, or trouble breathing. These conditions may require reduced doses, application frequency, or emergency medical attention in serious cases to prevent further health problems from occurring.
Cortavance (Hydrocortisone Aceponate) should only be administered to animals and is not meant to be used by humans. Do not apply the solution to skin that is broken or severely damaged.
