Pet Meds for Heart Conditions & Failure

Digoxin is a cardiac glycoside pet medication used to treat certain heart conditions in dogs and cats including atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation. Digoxin pet meds can also be indicated for treatment of heart failure.

Digoxin increases the contraction strength of the heart to help it beat more strongly and more regularly in cats and dogs with heart problems. It may be of benefit to pets with congestive heart failure, some heart rhythm disorders, and dilated cardiomyopathy.

Benefits of Digoxin:

  • Strengthens and promotes regularity of the heartbeat
  • Reduces strain on the heart
  • Supports pets with heart problems such as congestive heart failure or certain rhythm disorders
  • Improves the quality of life and life expectancy in pets with heart disease
  • Easy administration with scored oral tablets
  • Conveniently available in two dose strengths
  • Low-cost generic prices

Read all label instructions and precautionary statements prior to use.

Use Digoxin exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian.

Your veterinarian may need to perform periodic blood tests during treatment to monitor medication levels in the body.

Directions:

  1. Give Digoxin on an empty stomach.
  2. Administer 0.0025 to 0.005 mg per pound of body weight every 12 hours to dogs.
  3. Administer 0.0015 to 0.002 mg per pound of body weight every 12 hours to cats.
  4. Give Digoxin doses at the same time each day.
  5. Allow unrestricted access to water during treatment.

Frequency of Use:

Digoxin is given twice daily at 12-hour intervals and at the same times each day.

Unless you are able to administer a missed dose extremely close to the scheduled time, skip the dose and resume the normal schedule at the next one. Never give a double dose of Digoxin.

Do not abruptly stop giving this medication.

Storage:

Keep out of reach of children and animals.

Store Digoxin in its original container, tightly sealed, at controlled room temperature. Protect from moisture, heat, and light. Do not store in the bathroom.

Dispose of unused or outdated medication.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Digoxin affects the sodium and potassium inside heart cells. The result is less strain on the heart and stronger, more regular contractions.

Digoxin Active Ingredient (per tablet): 0.125 mg or 0.25 mg

Warnings:

Keep Digoxin out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Digoxin is only intended for use in cats and dogs. Do not administer to other species. Only use in the animal for which it was prescribed.

Use only as prescribed.

CAUTION: The difference between the treatment dosage and a dosage likely to cause adverse effects (including death) is minimal. Do not give at higher doses than prescribed. Only your veterinarian should adjust your pet's dose of Digoxin.

Pets require plenty of water while taking Digoxin.

Side effects may include loss of appetite, incoordination, emesis, diarrhea, depression, and irregular heart rhythms. Talk to your veterinarian about any observed adverse reactions.

The above-named symptoms, muscle weakness, changes to urinary output, seizures, hallucinations, confusion, and fatigue are some potential signs of overdose. If you know of or suspect an overdose, seek emergency veterinary treatment.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet takes any other heart medications or if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

Use with caution in animals with kidney impairment, digitalis overdose, thyroid dysfunction, electrolyte imbalance, ventricular fibrillation, or other heart or lung problems.

Antacids, metoclopramide, and other drugs or supplements may reduce the effectiveness of or otherwise interact with Digoxin. Consult your veterinarian before concurrently administering any other products.

Some chemotherapy medications, corticosteroids, and diuretics, as well as laxatives, tetracycline, erythromycin, quinidine, and verapamil, increase the risk of digitalis toxicity.

Do not suddenly stop giving Digoxin. This may worsen the heart condition being treated.

Difficulty breathing, hives, itching, rash, facial swelling, seizures, and cold limbs are some signs of an allergic reaction. Seek emergency veterinary care.
