What is Benazepril Compounded?

Benazepril is a prescription medication used in dogs and cats for the treatment of heart failure, high blood pressure, and some forms of kidney disease. Benazepril is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for dogs and cats. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Benazepril requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How it Works:

What is a Compounded Medication?

A compounded medication is the creation of a particular medication to fit the unique needs of a patient, including changing the form of the medication (e.g., from a solid pill to a liquid) for a variety reasons (e.g., to make it easier to take, to avoid a non-essential ingredient, to obtain the exact dose needed, adding favorite flavors).

If you are having difficulty giving your pet prescribed medication or need to find a discontinued medication, 1-800-PetMeds offers compounding services on select medications. We can prepare the following: (1) custom strength quantities of a medication (as capsules, liquid, chewable tablets, or transdermal (absorbed through the skin); (2) dosage forms to mask bitter or unpleasant taste (such as capsules or chewable tablets that can also be flavored); (3) dosage forms to make it easier to dose your pet such as a transdermal or liquid (that can also be flavored); and (4) discontinued products such as cisapride or DES.

I just want to clarify how to go about ordering. Is the quantity 1 per bottle? If so how mant ml in bottle? My cat takes 1.5ml daily.

Asked by: ShunRei
Yes, this comes as 1 mL to be applied transdermally. 1 mL contains 100 mg; if your cat is taking 1.5 mL this is 150 mg daily. This is a very high dose. Typical doses are 0.1-0.45 mg/lb once a day. Double check with your veterinarian on the dose. For a 20 lb cat, a normal dose would be 2-9 mg daily. Your vet may have written a prescription for a much less concentrated form of benazepril and not 100 mg/mL.

My cat takes Benazepril 2.5 mg compound medicine but I can only find one version on your site. Do you not sell 2.5?

Do you offer oral liquid Benazepril?

In one of the other answers, it's mentioned that you offer Benazepril in liquid form. However I just called to get a price on it, and the lady told me you don't have it and only carry pill form or transdermal.

fortekor (benazepril) 5 mg

I ordered fortekor (above) and realized it only comes in 5 mg, which is too much for my 7 lb dog. Is the proper dose 0.1 - 0.2 per kg or lb. And can I crush and scale it to proper dose? Thanks jeannette
Asked by: tyler
The recommended dose is 0.1 to 0.2mg per pound; however your veterinarian determines the actual dose that your pet should take.
