Description

Benazepril treats, and sometimes even prevents, heart failure, high blood pressure, and kidney failure. It belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, or ACE-inhibitors. ACE-inhibitors are classified as vasodilators because of their relaxing effect on blood vessels. They reduce concentrations of harmful chemicals and hormones that injure the heart muscle in animals with heart failure.

Key Benefits

  • Dilates the veins and decreases fluid retention
  • Treats heart failure, high blood pressure, and some forms of kidney disease in dogs and cats

How It Works

Benazepril is an ACE inhibitor used to dilate blood vessels in the treatment of high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and some types of kidney disease in dogs and cats.

Indications

Benazepril HCl tablets are an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor indicated for the treatment of hypertension, to lower blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events, primarily strokes and myocardial infarctions.

I love this place! I can get a Years worth of my dogs heart medication for less then 1 month from the vet! Itís helped keep my dog alive for 10 years and she wasnít supposed to live more then 1 to 3 years but with this site I can always have her medication on time and very good quality! Their customer service is also very good, love this place and their prices and great customer service!

Everything was simple and price was great! My only concern is that the size of the pills is so small that it is virtually impossible to split for our dog as she needs only 1/2 a pill at a time. Iíll order again if I can get same dose in a larger size pill to split.
