Steroids fall into two distinct categories, anabolic and catabolic. While anabolic steroids grab the headlines in sports "doping scandals", there are some important medical uses for these products. The more widely utilized steroids in veterinary medicine are catabolic steroids such as "cortisone derivatives". These potent medications are used in the treatment of many important medical conditions at widely different dosage levels. Always consult with your veterinarian to make sure your pet is receiving the proper dosage as well as any necessary monitoring while being treated with this group of medications.
