Selegiline Cushing's Disease Pet Medications

Anipryl (selegiline) is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) prescription pet medication that's used to treat Cushing's Disease in dogs. Anipryl also treats dogs with behavioral changes due to aging and senility.

Anipryl is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor, or MAOI. It is used in dogs to treat Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome, or senility. Anipryl also helps control Cushing's disease in dogs resulting from a tumor on the pituitary gland.

Benefits of Anipryl:

  • First medication approved by the FDA for treating senility in dogs
  • First medication approved by the FDA for treating canine Cushing's Disease
  • Improves life for elderly dogs with age-related cognitive problems
  • Relieves symptoms associated with excess cortisol resulting from Cushing's Disease
  • Results in as little as one month in 70 percent of dogs treated for cognitive dysfunction
  • Results in as little as one month in dogs treated for Cushing's Disease
  • Easy once-daily oral dosing

Anipryl is only for dogs with senility or canine Cushing's Disease. Not for human use. Do not give to cats or other animals. Only for dogs with a prescription.

Keep out of reach of children. Do not allow children to administer or otherwise handle Anipryl. Read directions and precautionary statements before use.

The following directions represent a standard use. Use exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian.

Directions:

  1. Remove only one dose from the blister pack. Return the remaining medication to its safe storage location.
  2. Give your dog a dose of 0.2-0.45 mg per pound of body weight in the morning when treating for canine cognitive dysfunction.
  3. Give your dog a dose of 0.45 per pound of body weight in the morning when treating for canine Cushing's Disease.
  4. Double the dose to 0.9 mg per pound if dogs with Cushing's disease show no results after 2 months of treatment.
  5. Observe your dog to ensure consumption of the full oral dose.

Your veterinarian will monitor your dog and may adjust the dosage until a proper dose is found. Your dog and the dosage will be reevaluated periodically. Dogs with Cushing's Disease that show no improvement after 1 month at the doubled dosage should be reevaluated.

Frequency of Use:

Anipryl is administered once a day, preferably in the morning.

If you miss a dose and it is more than 16 hours until the next day's scheduled dose, give your dog the tablet as soon as you remember. If you miss a dose and there is less than 16 hours until the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the dose and resume the normal schedule the next day. Never give a double dose of Anipryl.

Selegiline, the active ingredient in Anipryl, is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI). It boosts a dog's dopamine concentration, enhancing cognitive functions to combat the effects of senility. Anipryl treats canine Cushing's Disease by suppressing the pituitary gland to reduce cortisone.
