Enalapril Compound Basics
Enalapril is available by prescription only. Enalapril is an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-inhibitor). ACE-inhibitors are classified as vasodilators because of their relaxing effect on blood vessels. The primary use of enalapril is for the treatment and prevention of heart failure and high blood pressure. Enalapril decreases the formation of compounds and hormones that constrict blood vessels in animals with heart and vascular disease. ACE-inhibitors also reduce concentrations of harmful chemicals and hormones that injure the heart muscle in animals with heart failure. Enalapril Compound is available in a capsule, oral suspension, and transdermal ear cream.
Enalapril Compound Warnings
Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use in animals with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to enalapril. Notify your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to enalapril or any other ACE-inhibitor, such as benazepril, captopril, or lisinopril. Enalapril may relax blood vessels, causing animals to become weak due to low pressure. Enalapril can have a negative reaction when mixed with some other medications. Inform your doctor of any and all medications your pet is taking, especially furosemide tablets (Lasix), spironolactone, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs). Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating. Store at room temperature, protected from light and moisture. Shake the oral suspension before use.
Enalapril Compound Directions
Use as directed by your veterinarian. Always follow the instructions printed on the prescription label. Store enalapril at room temperature. Shake oral suspensions before use. Be sure to complete the prescription to ensure a full recovery, unless your veterinarian instructs you otherwise. Duration of administration depends on the condition being treated, response to the medication, and development of any adverse effects. Allow your pet access to plenty of water.
Enalapril Compound Dosage Instructions
Enalapril compounded ear gel alleviates the frustration of trying to get your pet to take pills. The ear gel can be applied topically on the inside of your pet’s ear, and it gives your pet the same benefits as oral medication would. Enalapril compounded oral suspension is administered by a syringe into your pet’s mouth. Oral Suspensions can be a good option if your pet refuses to swallow pills.
