Description

Mirtazapine is used in behavior modification in dogs and cats on occasion but has been used more often as an appetite stimulant in pets that are reluctant to eat. It is commonly used for long term control of diseases like Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Dogs (IBD) and in elderly renal failure cats. Some veterinarians may also use it for the treatment of separation anxiety in dogs, inappropriate urination (urine spraying) and anxiety in cats. The use of this drug in cats with interstitial cystitis is based on the condition's association with stress, and increased central nervous system activity occurring as a result of this disorder (because of frequent and painful urination).

Key Features

  • Appetite stimulant for pets who are reluctant to eat
  • Also used for behavior modification and reduction of stress and anxiety
  • Controls Inflammatory Bowel disease and renal failure

How It Works

Mirtazapine causes a side effect that stimulates appetite. It also has strong anti-nausea properties that block signals from the intestine and stomach that communicate with the vomit center of the brain.

Indications

Mirtazapine tablets are indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder.

Directions

  • Generally, Mirtazapine is given once a day to dogs, and twice a week to cats. However, dosages vary by weight and by veterinarians instructions so use accordingly.
  • It is used to treat conditions where poor appetite and nausea go together.
  • It is also used to alleviate the nausea associated with chemotherapy when treating cancer.

Tip: It is important to find out the cause of the loss of appetite in your pet and treat the underlying condition and not just the symptoms.

Caution:

Keep out of reach of children. Safety of Mirtazapine is unproven in pregnant and lactating pets.

Precautions:

Mirtazapine should be used with caution in pets with known cardiac disease or cerebrovascular disease that could be exacerbated by hypotension. Pets with renal impairment, renal failure, or hepatic disease may require lower doses of mirtazapine and should be monitored while on mirtazapine therapy.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

Possible Side Effects

Mirtazapine may cause a drop in blood pressure or an elevation in heart rate. Drowsiness and serotonin syndrome are potential side effects. Occasionally, mirtazapine has been reported to cause abnormalities in blood cell lines developing in the bone marrow. If a pet is known to have leukemia, low platelets, or some other blood disease mirtazapine can still be used but extra monitoring tests are probably in order.

FAQ

Mirtazapine causes a side effect that stimulates appetite. It also has strong anti-nausea properties that block signals from the intestine and stomach that communicate with the vomit center of the brain.
Mirtazapine is used as an appetite stimulant for pets. It is extremely beneficial for pets that are suffering from a condition such as stomach disease, renal failure or other conditions that make pets feel queasy and lose their appetite. It is also prescribed to pets that are undergoing chemotherapy treatments, since an unsettled stomach is commonly attributed to chemotherapy. Mirtazapine requires a prescription from a veterinarian.
Tell your veterinarian if your pet is currently on any other medications.
Generally, Mirtazapine is given once a day to dogs, and twice a week to cats. However, dosages vary by weight and by veterinarians' instructions so use accordingly.
One potential yet rare side effect is serotonin syndrome. It is caused when the serotonin levels become elevated. This usually occurs when Mirtazapine is used as part of a combination of other serotonin-increasing medications. Monitor your pet with elevated heart rate, tremors, dilated pupils, difficulty breathing, fever or high blood pressure. Hyperactivity is also a sign in some dogs.
Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
If you suspect that your pet has received an overdose of Mirtazapine, consult your veterinarian or emergency veterinary clinic immediately.
Mirtazapine should not be combined with other antidepressants.
Mirtazapine may interact with other antidepressants. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is currently on any other medications.
