In general, the effect of dexamethasone is rapid. When treatments greater than 3 days are applied, it is advisable to give the lowest doses that have proven to be effective. Glucocorticoids administered during the last trimester of gestation, depending on the animal species and the dose, can induce the first stage of labor, which is why they should not occur in pregnant females at that stage of gestation unless the fetus is induced to induce labor. . In pregnancies prior to the 3rd trimester, glucocorticoids can induce signs of parturition, for which pregnant cows should be given the lowest doses indicated. Glucocorticoids can temporarily decrease milk production.
In case of acute or chronic bacterial diseases the use of glucocorticoids must be accompanied by an adequate treatment with antibiotics or chemotherapy.
In acute kidney diseases and in conditions where there may be liver parenchymal compromise should be given with caution and under observation of the veterinarian.
