Details

Digoxin can be a helpful treatment in pets who suffer from certain types of heart disease.

What is Digoxin?Digoxin is an oral medication that is prescribed by your veterinarian in order to treat certain heart diseases including congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation/flutter, rapid heartbeat, and some forms of dilated cardiomyopathy.

What are the benefits of Digoxin?
  • Can be used to treat several different types of heart disease
  • Multiple strengths available which allows for accurate dosing
  • Can be administered orally

Formulated for:multiple species including dogs and cats.

How is this medication given?Give Digoxin orally exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian. Speak with your veterinarian if you do not understand how to give Digoxin correctly.

Digoxin should not be given with food in cats unless your veterinarian instructs you differently since food may decrease its absorption.

How does this medication work?Digoxin works to decrease heart rate and pressure in the veins. It also causes an increase in heart muscle contractility which helps to manage congestive heart failure.

What results can I expect? Digoxin can help to manage the symptoms associated with certain types of heart disease but it will not cure the disease. You should notice an improvement in your pets symptoms within several days of starting medication but symptoms will likely return if Digoxin is discontinued.

What form(s) does Digoxin come in? Digoxin is available as a tablet and as an elixir.

Generic Name:Digoxin (Common Drug Name)

Common Brand Name:Lanoxi, Digitek, Cardoxin

Dose and Administration: Give this medication by mouth according to your veterinarians prescribed instructions. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember but do not give two doses at one time. This medication should be given only the animal it has been prescribed for. If you have any questions about how to use Digoxin, always speak to your veterinarian.

Uses: Digoxin is used to treat heart diseases including congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation/flutter, rapid heartbeat, and some forms of dilated cardiomyopathy.

Possible Side Effects: Reported side effects include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, incoordination, loss of appetite, weight loss, weakness, and abnormal heart rhythms. Other side effects may occur. If your pet appears ill in any way while taking Digoxin, call your veterinarian immediately.

Drug and Food Interactions: Interactions may occur with antacids, cimetidine, metoclopramide, oral neomycin, penicillamine, chemotherapy drugs, diuretics (furosemide, Lasix), amphotericin B, corticosteroids (ex. prednisone), laxatives, diazepam (Valium), quinidine, anticholinergic drugs (atropine), verapamil (another heart medication), tetracycline, erythromycin, and thyroid medications (thyroxine, Soloxine). Other interactions are possible. It is important to discuss all medications, vitamins, and supplements your pet is taking with your veterinarian before you start to give Digoxin to your pet.

Precautions:Digoxin should not be given to breeding, pregnant, or lactating animals. Animals with ventricular fibrillation, digitalis overdose, and certain other heart/lung conditions cannot tale Digoxin. Caution should be used in obese animals and in animals with thyroid, kidney, severe lung disease, electrolyte abnormalities, and in Collies/herding breeds since these patients have a higher risk of side effects when they are given Digoxin.

Blood testing is usually required periodically in patients who take Digoxin. Discuss this with your veterinarian.

Storage:Store at room temperature away from children and pets.

A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Digoxin.
