Help to relieve your pet’s symptoms that are caused by heart disease by using Digoxin.

    What outcomes can be expected?

    Who is it for: Dogs and cats can take Digoxin along with several other animal species.

    How is it given?

    1.All medication should be given by mouth according to your veterinarian’s directions.

    2.Do not give with food in cats unless your veterinarian tells you to since food can decrease the absorption of Digoxin.

    3.Talk to your veterinarian if you have any questions about Digoxin.

    How does it work? Digoxin can help your pet’s heart disease by decreasing heart rate and pressure in the veins. Digoxin will also increase in heart muscle contractility which is helpful in the treatment of congestive heart failure.

    Precautions:Do not use Digoxin in breeding, pregnant, or lactating animals.

If your pet suffers from obesity, thyroid disease, kidney disease, severe lung disease, electrolyte abnormalities, or if your pet is a Collies or herding breed, Digoxin should be used cautiously and only if the benefits outweigh the risks.
