Slentrol for Dogs

Dirlotapide for Overweight Dogs

Slentrol is a prescription-strength oral medication indicated for the treatment of obesity in dogs. It is not a cure for obesity and should be used in combination with a weight reduction plan that includes dietary changes and increased activity.

Slentrol is designed to control appetite and reduce fat absorption in dogs to induce weight loss and then maintain a healthy weight. Obesity puts your dog at risk for numerous health problems, including arthritis and heart disease; Slentrol reduces the risk of developing these problems.

Benefits of Slentrol:

  • Helps reduce obesity in dogs
  • Controls appetite
  • Reduces fat absorption by the body
  • Minimizes the risk of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other weight-related health conditions
  • Readily accepted by most dogs; can be added to food or fed directly
  • Side effects are usually mild and temporary

Use this medication only as directed by your veterinarian.

Slentrol should be used in conjunction with proper diet and adequate exercise.

Your dog's dose should not exceed the maximum daily dose of 0.09 mL/lb.

Directions:

  1. Remove the bottle cap and insert the dosing syringe through the membrane and into the bottle.
  2. Invert the bottle and then slowly withdraw the correct amount using the graduation marks located on the side of the syringe.
  3. Administer the dose to your dog. The standard initial dose is 0.0045 mL/lb., given once daily. After 14 days, the dose doubles and is given once daily for another 14 days.
  4. Give Slentrol directly or add it to a small plate of food.
  5. Recalculate your dog's dose monthly to account for changes in weight during treatment.
  6. Clean the syringe after each use by wiping with a dry or disposable towel. Do not use water; do not introduce water into the syringe.

Frequency of Use:

Slentrol is not intended for long-term weight control. Once the ideal weight is achieved, Slentrol can be continued for an additional 3 months to maintain weight loss.

Storage:

Store Slentrol in the original container, out of reach of pets and children, between 59 and 86 degrees F.

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

Slentrol works in two ways: it contains dirlotapide to control appetite and it reduces fat absorption inside the body. Use of Slentrol results in reduced appetite and weight loss, which in turn lowers your dog's risk of obesity-related health complications.
