Product Details

What is Slentrol? This is an oral solution that helps to control your dogs obesity along with proper diet and exercise as directed by your veterinarian.

What are the benefits of Slentrol?
  • Contains dirlotapide to control appetite.
  • Helps to reduce fat absorption.
  • Aids in weight loss along with sensible diet and exercise.

Formulated for: dogs over 1 year of age.

How is this medication given? This is an oral medication. It can be given either directly into your dogs mouth or in a small amount of food.

During the first month of treatment, the dosing of Slentrol consists of two fixed dose rates in all dogs. Dosing after the first month is determined by your veterinarian and is based on the amount of weight loss your dog has achieved in the previous month.

How does this medication work? Slentrol aids in your dogs weight loss by reducing fat absorption in the body. It also works in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to control appetite.

What results can I expect? Slentrol is not a cure for obesity and also requires proper diet and exercise in order to achieve results. A decrease in your dogs appetite may occur but should not last for longer than 1-2 days after the last dose has been given. Individual results will vary. Slentrol should only be used during weight loss and during a 3-month weight-management phase once the dogs ideal weight has been achieved.

What form(s) does Slentrol come in? This is a liquid solution (50 mg/ml) that is given by mouth (orally).
