Dog and Cat High Blood Pressure Medication

Enalapril is an ACE inhibitor for dogs and cats that treats congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. Enalapril pet meds block a specific enzyme that is necessary for the production of a substance that tightens blood vessels. Use of Enalapril causes blood vessels to relax, thereby lowering blood pressure, improving blood and oxygen supply to the heart, and relieving strain on the heart.

Enalapril is a prescription medication used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure in cats and dogs. It also prevents pulmonary edema and increases the amount of oxygen and blood in the heart by relaxing blood vessels. Enalapril enables animals with heart disease to exercise and improves quality of life.

Benefits of Enalapril:

  • Treats mild, moderate, and severe heart failure
  • Helps lower high blood pressure in cats and dogs
  • Prevents fluids from accumulating in the lungs
  • Improves exercise tolerance
  • Prolongs life
  • Once-daily dosing for easy administration
