    2.Benazepril can be given with or without food.

    3.Never stop giving this medication abruptly unless your veterinarian tells you to. Always call your veterinarian if you have questions about how to use Benazepril correctly.

    How does it work? Benazepril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme(ACE) inhibitor. ACE inhibitors work by blocking angiotensin which is an enzyme in the body that helps blood vessels to constrict. Blocking angiotensin helps blood vessels to dilate and relax. This can help lower blood pressure and improve your pet’s related symptoms.

    Benazepril is available as: a tablet.

    Generic Name:Benazepril (Common Drug Name)

    Common Brand Name:Lotensin

    Dose and Administration:Give this medication orally. Always follow your veterinarian’s exact instructions. Tablets can be given with or without food.

    If you miss a dose, give it exactly when you remember but never give two doses at one time. Only give Benazepril to the pet it has been prescribed for.

    Uses:Benazepril is used to manage the symptoms that are associated with heart disease, high blood pressure, and some types of kidney disease in dogs and cats.

    Storage:Keep Benazepril tablets at room temperature in a light-resistant container in a safe place away from children and pets.

    Possible Side Effects: Benazepril is usually tolerated well but side effects are possible. Possible side effects include loss or appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, and collapse.

    Some pets are truly allergic to Benazepril and may experience swelling, itching, vomiting, diarrhea, or shock. Other side effects may occur.

    Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet appears ill after Benazepril is given.

    Precautions:Do not give Benazepril to pets who are allergic to ACE inhibitors. Use this medication cautiously in pets with low blood sodium levels. Do not give Benazepril to pets with lupus or other blood dyscrasias. Pregnant females should not take this medication but lactating females may be able to take it when supervised by your veterinarian. Always discuss risks vs. benefits with your veterinarian before starting your pet on Benazepril.

    Drug and Food Interactions: Always discuss all medications and supplements(including potassium supplements) your pet is taking with your veterinarian prior to giving Benazepril. Some interactions are possible when Benazepril is given with diuretics (e.g. Lasix, Salix), other vasodilators, or NSAIDs (ex. Novox, Rimadyl, Metacam, Deramaxx). Adjustments in the dosage of diuretics your pet is taking may be necessary when they are given with Benazepril. Other drug interactions may occur.

    A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Benazepril.

    Comments about Benazepril (Generic to Lotensin):

    We have been using this product for over 2 years on our vet's recommendation to help keep our beloved 14 year old corgi's kidneys from worsening. On our vet's recommendation, we have added famotidine to his daily dose to help lessen any possible stomach upset and this has been a highly effective combination.
