Elanco is experiencing a delay in production of Percorten®-V (desoxycorticosterone pivalate injectable suspension) due to the inability of our contract manufacturing facility to supply product. While we work diligently to resolve this delay, there is an interruption of product supply to veterinarians. The technical challenges in the manufacturing process are being actively investigated with a focus on expediting resolution. The timeframe to resume production is dependent on the investigation conclusions and at this point is unknown.
All product that is currently in veterinary clinics is safe to use, and meets Elanco’s rigorous quality standards.
While pet owners have other options for treating Addison’s disease during this temporary supply disruption, Elanco takes seriously our responsibility for the health and welfare of pets. Elanco’s staff veterinarians are focused on providing our customers medical consultations, treatment guidance and resources to help them manage impacted patients. Our technical support team will be available to provide personalized technical assistance. They can be reached at 1-888-545-5973.
Elanco deeply regrets that this production issue is impacting the veterinarians and pets that rely on us to manage this serious disease, and is working persistently to hurry this product back to those who need it.
