Customer Reviews
Ciprofloxacin is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service & Product Service was wonderful, very helpful with my first order. The people who helped me went that extra mile to explain the process to me, and let me ask all kinds of questions without rushing me off the phone. The price match works great to, I found my product a little cheaper somewhere eles and they matched what I found. The product itself worked great. All my cats were feeling better within two days. However, they did not like the taste very well, which was expected.

Are there contradictions with cipro and ace inhibitors?

Human models recommended not using fluoroquinolone classes which is this medication with ace inhibitors such as enalapril. The combination of these drugs causes hyperkalmia, then sudden death within a week in specific people. Can cipro and ace inhibitors cause ill or death in pets too? What dosages are safe if given to a cat or dog if they are taking an ace inhibitor? Giving this medication to children is done with caution too. Cats and dogs are so small like children. If a cat or dog has an undiagnosed kidney disease with BUN/CRE levels appearing normal, how would taking cipro affect these pets? Can cipro elevate BUN/CRE or could the cat or dog become hyperkalmia?
Asked by: Anonymous
Although there have been some published studies regarding the risks of usage of certain fluroquinolone antibiotics and ace inhibitors, there is no established drug interaction between these two medications. Please be sure to contact your vet regarding potential risks for your pet if they are on these two medications. Your vet will be able to evaluate the risk vs benefit for your pet and help chose the most appropriate treatment therapy for your pet's condition. Any pet taking an ace inhibitor should have their potassium levels monitored periodically. Also, if a pet does have renal impairment, the dose of the cipro may be lowered and adjusted appropriately.
