Selegiline HCL

Generic Anipryl MAOI for Dogs

Selegiline HCL is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor used to treat Cushing's disease and canine senility. It is very effective when used as prescribed and is the only FDA-approved drug for the treatment of canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome. When used to treat cognitive dysfunction, Selegiline HCL pet meds are most effective when used along with a behavior modification plan.

Selegiline HCL helps dogs with Cushing's disease by reducing symptoms such as polydipsia, polyuria, hair loss, thinning skin, overeating, itching, lethargy, depression, aggression, ataxia, and vomiting.

In cases of canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome, or CDS, Selegiline HCL restores and improves relationships with humans and with other dogs, minimizes disorientation, improves activity and sleep, and helps prevent inappropriate urination and defecation, thereby significantly improving quality of life.

Benefits of Selegiline HCL:

  • Generally well tolerated
  • Reduces wandering and forgetfulness in CDS
  • Improves quality and timing of sleep in CDS
  • Promotes quality interaction with family members in CDS
  • Prevents muscle wasting and improves muscle tone in dogs with Cushing's disease
  • Helps prevent corneal plaques and testicular atrophy in dogs with Cushing's disease
