Product Information

Ursodiol can be beneficial for your pet when he/she has been diagnosed with certain diseases of the liver and gallbladder.

Urosdiol is: a medication that is given by mouth as prescribed by your veterinarian in order to manage some liver and gallbladder diseases. It is also sometimes used in order to help remove gallstones containing cholesterol.

What are the benefits?

    1.Can help manage an array of liver and gallbladder diseases;2.Safe with minimal side effects when used as directed;3.Can aid in the removal of toxic bile acids and can help dissolve certain types of gallstones.

    What outcomes can be expected?

    Ursodiol usually does not work immediately. It may be weeks to months before your pet’s gallbladder and/or liver disease are under control so always be patient.

    Who is it for: Dogs and cats can take Ursodiol but its use is contraindicated (not allowed) in guinea pigs, rabbits, and other similar species.

    How is it given?

    1.All capsules should be given by mouth with food if possible.

    2.Your pet’s dosage and frequency of dosing is always determined by your veterinarian so always follow his/her instructions carefully.

    3.Always contact your veterinarian if you have questions about how to use Ursodiol correctly.

    How does it work? Ursodiol increases the flow of bile in and out of the gall bladder and into the intestine which prevents excessive accumulation of bile. Too much bile can cause toxicity. Ursodiol also helps to decrease the production of cholesterol in the liver and can help to reduce the absorption of cholesterol from food. Urosdiol can also be helpful in eliminating gallstones made up of cholesterol.

    Ursodiol is available as: a capsule.

    Generic Name:Ursodiol(Common Drug Name)

    Common Brand Name:Actigall

    Dose and Administration:Ursodiol is available as a capsule that should be given only as prescribed by your veterinarian. If you accidentally skip a dose, give it when you remember but do not double dose. Ursodiol should be given only to the animal your veterinarian has prescribed it for. If you are unsure of how to give Ursodiol properly, always call your veterinarian for further guidance.

    Uses:Ursodiol is given to dogs and cats in order to manage some liver and gallbladder diseases. It works by helping to reduce the amount of cholesterol in bile and bile stones.

    Storage:Keep at room temperature away from light, children, and pets.

    Possible Side Effects: Ursodiol is usually tolerated well but it can cause diarrhea in some animals. It is possible for liver disease to worsen in certain pets. This can cause vomiting, depression, or jaundice (yellowing of the gums, skin, or eyes). A percentage of dogs and cats can have an allergic reaction when Ursodiol is given. Other side effects may occur. Always call your veterinarian if your pet seems ill while taking Ursodiol.

    Precautions:Ursodiol should not be used in animals who have an allergy to it or similar medications. Rabbits, guinea pigs, or other animals with similar digestive systems may not be given Ursodiol as it can result in life-threatening liver disease.

    Animals with a history of gallstones, pancreatitis, bile duct obstruction, or inflammation of the gallbladder or bile ducts (cholecystitis and cholangitis) should be given this medication with extreme caution and only under the direct supervision of a veterinarian.

    The safety in all species of pregnant and lactating females is unknown.

    Drug and Food Interactions: Discuss all other medications and supplements your pet is receiving with your veterinarian to be sure that Ursodiol can be given safely.

    A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Ursodiol.

          Comments about Ursodiol Capsules:

          I purchased ursodiol for a liver/gall bladder disorder in my 9 year old 40 pound mixed breed (Brittany spaniel/Bernese Mountain dog mix). The price of this medicine from PetFoodDirect is better than any price I could find locally. PedFoodDirect ships quickly so I received the new medicine before I ran out of my previous supply. I have not used it yet, but I noticed that I can set up recurring orders so each month I can have this medicine sent to me without my having to remember to place the order. I think I will use this option to help keep life simpler and have one less thing to remember each month.
