      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.
