Hi, I have read your problem. Yes vetalog is to be avoided in puppies. Vetalog is to be given in adult dogs. It may cause sodium retention, fluid retention, potassium loss and weight gains. As with any corticosteroid, polydipsia or polyuria may occur with high dosage or frequent administration of triamcinolone acetonide. So it is usually avoided in puppies. I hope you have got your answer Thanks.
