My vet has started my cat on liquid enalapril for kidney support: 1 mg/1 ml. He is given 1 ml of the compound twice a day. Is this something that I can get through you or must I continue to have it ordered by my vet?

Asked by: lucyzack
We do not make enalapril liquid in a 1mg/ml concentration. The lowest concentration we carry is the 5mg/ml. Check your local compounding pharmacy for availability.

My dog has been taking 2.5 mg of enalapril, chewable. I want to try liquid. I do not see the 2.5 mg in liquid. What are my options? My dog's weight ranges from 10.5 lbs - 14.5 lbs, & can change that much mo to mo. Depends on meds in his food

Asked by: Beth
Hello Beth, The smallest strength of the liquid that we carry is the 5mg/ml. So in order to get your dog's dose of 2.5mg, you would give him 1/2 ml. Hope that helps.

Do you do other compunding amounts that aren't on the list?

My bird is on an enalapril solution but it is 4mg/ml. Can you compound the solutions for a requested amount that is not on your list?
Asked by: Cathy
Unfortunately, no. We are only able to compound the strengths that are advertised.

What is Enalapril Compounded?

Enalapril Compounded is used to treat mild, moderate, or severe heart failure and high blood pressure, and is usually used in combination with other medications. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Enalapril Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats & Dogs

Benefits:

  • Helps the heart beat more efficiently
  • Prevents fluid buildup in the lungs
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Improves ability to tolerate exercise

How it Works:

Enalapril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by blocking an enzyme in the body that is needed to produce a substance that causes blood vessels to tighten. As a result, the blood vessels relax. This lowers blood pressure and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.

Cautions:

Do not give your pet potassium supplements unless directed to by your veterinarian. Enalapril may cause birth defects. Do not give to pregnant animals.

Enalapril Compounded Directions:

  • Enalapril is a prescription medication that belongs to a group of drugs called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It is FDA approved for use in dogs only, however it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe enalapril for cats as well.
  • Enalapril is used to treat mild, moderate, or severe heart failure and high blood pressure and is usually used in combination with other medications.
  • Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or if you plan on breeding your pet. Enalapril could cause birth defects.
Tip:

Allow plenty of water for the pet to drink. Enalapril may be given with or without food. Periodic liver and kidney function testing may be required by your veterinarian.
