Administration & Dosage: Subcutaneous or intramuscular: Cats and Dogs: Inflammatory or allergic illnesses receive a single injection of 0.05 mg to 0.1 mg triamcinolone acetonide per pound of body weight, whereas dermatologic disorders receive 0.1 mg per pound of body weight. If not permanent, symptom remission generally lasts 7 to 15 days. If symptoms return after this period, the dosage may be repeated or oral corticosteroid treatment may be used. Horses: A single injection of 0.01 mg to 0.02 mg triamcinolone acetonide per pound of body weight; the average dosage range is 12 mg to 20 mg. The normal intralesional dose for dogs and cats is 1.2 mg to 1.8 mg triamcinolone acetonide. To ensure sufficient dosage distribution, injections should be confined around the lesion in multiple locations. Depending on the extent of the lesion, injections should be placed 0.5 cm to 2.5 cm apart. Pain and/or pressure necrosis are also reduced by separating the doses. To avoid local tissue intolerance and atrophy, the amount injected at any one spot should not exceed 0.6 mg, and it should be made well into the cutis to avoid epidermal rupture. Do not exceed a total dosage of 6 mg when treating dogs and cats with numerous lesions. If required, more treatment courses may be given. For accuracy in dosage estimation and simplicity of administration, use a tuberculin syringe with a tiny diameter needle (23-25 gauge). Dogs, Cats, and Horses: Intra-articular and intrasynovial: The dose for intra-articular or intrasynovial administration is determined by the size of the affected joint and the degree of symptoms. For cats and dogs, a single injection of 1 mg to 3 mg triamcinolone acetonide is advised, while for horses, a single injection of 6 mg to 18 mg triamcinolone acetonide is indicated. Depending on the severity of the symptoms and the clinical response, injections may be repeated after three or four days. If the early results are insufficient or too fleeting, the dosage can be raised, but not above the suggested level. All intra-articular injections should be preceded by routine aseptic preparation of the region. It is critical to have a full grasp of the relevant anatomical connections. Inadvertent corticosteroid delivery into the soft tissues around a joint is not dangerous, but it is the most common reason of failure to produce the intended local effects. Pain and other local sensations may persist for a brief period after intra-articular treatment until significant relief is achieved, although an increase in joint discomfort is uncommon. Septic arthritis is defined by an increase in pain that is accompanied by local edema, additional limitation of joint mobility, fever, and malaise. If these consequences arise and a diagnosis of sepsis is established, antimicrobial therapy should be started very away and continued until the infection is completely gone.
