Acute crisis therapy and maintenance therapy of hypoadrenocorticism. Oral therapy is continued for three to four weeks in most patients after the crisis is over. It may be given initially every 12 hours. The initial dose is gradually decreased by 50 % per week until the medication is discontinued. Most of the dogs respond well on fludrocortisone alone after the first few weeks of therapy.
