Dexamethasone is a glucocorticoid used for the treatment of metabolic diseases in ruminants and general inflammatory processes in bovines, sheep, goats, equines, camels, dogs and felines.
Dexa 500 is indicated as a primary or supplementary treatment of dermatitis, urticaria, bursitis, tendinitis, arthritis, anaphylactic shock, mastitis, hyper-sensitivity reactions, ketosis and other symptoms responding to the administration of corticosteroids.
Due to the low percentage, Dexa 500 is suitable for racing events. With the right dosage it can be used very close to the race without being banned from the competition.
