Description

Diltiazem is an extra-label calcium channel blocker prescribed to dogs and cats suffering from different heart conditions that include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or thickened heart walls, high blood pressure, and irregular heartbeats. Calcium enters the heart through calcium channels and causes the heart muscle and blood vessels to contract, making it harder to pump blood through the body. Diltiazem blocks these calcium channels, reducing the contraction of the heart muscle and dilating the arteries. This slows the heart beat and lowers blood pressure, allowing the heart to pump blood more efficiently.

Key Benefits

  • Diltiazem helps the heart beat more efficiently
  • Treats high blood pressure and certain heart rhythm abnormalities in dog and cats
  • You can administer the tablet form of diltiazem with or without food

How It Works

Diltiazem works by preventing calcium from building up in your pet's blood vessels, making blood flow easier and lowering blood pressure.

Indications

Diltiazem hydrochloride tablets USP are indicated for the management of chronic stable angina and angina due to coronary artery spasm.

Directions

  • Always make sure there is fresh water available for your pet.
  • Tablets can be taken with or without food.
  • Give Diltiazem exactly as it is prescribed by your veterinarian.

Tip: Always make sure there is fresh water available for your pet.
