What is Digoxin?

Digoxin is used to treat heart diseases such as congestive heart failure, certain types of heart rhythm disorders, and sometimes, dilated cardiomyopathy. Digoxin is sold per tablet and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Increases contraction strength of the heart
  • Sold per tablet

How does digoxin work?

Digoxin works by affecting the minerals sodium and potassium inside your pet's heart cells. This action reduces strain on the heart and helps it maintain a normal, steady, and strong beat.

Cautions:

Because the difference between the treatment dose and the dose that causes side effects is small, do not adjust the medication without contacting your veterinarian. Contact your veterinarian if your pet shows decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, incoordination, changes in urination, or weakness while being treated with digoxin.

Brand Name:

Cardoxin (Evsco), Lanoxin (GlaxoSmithKline)

Generic Name:

Digoxin

What is the most important thing I should know about digoxin?

Digoxin is a cardiac glycoside. Digoxin helps the heart beat more strongly and regularly. Digoxin is used to treat various heart conditions such as congestive heart failure and atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. Digoxin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide. Digoxin is a prescription medication used in dogs and cats. Digoxin is available as 0.125 mg and 0.25 mg scored tablets.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving digoxin to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease, thyroid disease or is being given any other heart medication. Also tell your veterinarian if the pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should digoxin be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. The usual initial dose for dogs is 0.0025-0.005 mg/lb every 12 hours. The usual dose in cats is 0.0015-0.002 mg/lb every 12 hours. Do not stop giving digoxin suddenly. Stopping suddenly could make the heart condition worse. Digoxin should be given with lots of water. Digoxin should be given to your pet at the same times every day. Periodic blood tests may be necessary during treatment with digoxin to monitor the amount of medication in the pets body. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store digoxin at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What are the potential side effects of digoxin?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving digoxin and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), headache, fainting or extreme drowsiness or dizziness, irregular heartbeat, slow heartbeat, abnormally fast heartbeat, hallucinations or abnormal behavior. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving digoxin and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences decrease appetite and diarrhea, unusual tiredness or weakness, nausea or vomiting, dizziness or drowsiness. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of digoxin?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you are within 12 hours of the next dose, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet on digoxin?

If you suspect that your pet has received an overdose of digoxin, consult your veterinarian or emergency veterinary clinic immediately.

What should I avoid while giving digoxin to my pet?

There are no restrictions on food or activity while the pet is on digoxin unless otherwise directed by the veterinarian.

What other drugs will affect Digoxin?

Tell the veterinarian if your pet is also taking an antacid or laxative that contains aluminum, magnesium or kaolin-pectin, a beta-blocker such as atenolol, a calcium channel blocker such as Norvasc, a cancer chemotherapy drug, a diuretic such as furosemide, a steroid medication such as prednisone, a thyroid medication, erythromycin, metoclopramide or tetracycline. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with digoxin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines.

Digoxin Directions:

  • Digoxin is a prescription medication used in dogs and cats for the initial and chronic treatment of congestive heart failure, and atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.
  • Digoxin is a cardiac glycoside. Digoxin helps the heart beat more strongly and regularly.
