Description

Digoxin is used to treat certain heart diseases in dogs and cats. It is a prescription medication used to treat heart diseases such as congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation/flutter, certain conditions causing rapid heartbeat and sometimes dilated cardiomyopathy.

Key Benefits

  • Prescription medication for the treatment of certain heart diseases
  • Digoxin is conveniently available in multiple strengths
  • Treats congestive heart failure and certain types of heart rhythm disorders

How It Works

Digoxin treats congestive heart failure by causing an increase in the heart muscle contractility. Digoxin also reduces heart rate and pressure in the veins to combat conditions associated with congestive heart failure.

Directions

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. 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.

  • 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.
  • Do not stop giving the medication suddenly. Stopping suddenly can make the heart condition worse.

Tip: Because the difference between the treatment dose and the dose that causes side effects is small, do not adjust medication without contacting the veterinarian.
