Description

Tamsulosin is a prescription drug that can be used to relax the lower urinary tract and may help in the treatment of bladder stones. - Tamsulosin is similar to the drug Prazosin, but may be longer acting.

Why is Tamsulosin used for cats and dogs? Veterinarians may prescribe Tamsulosin to relax the smooth muscle of the bladder or prostate. - This relaxation can help improve urine flow in male dogs with enlarged prostates. - Tamsulosin may also help cats and dogs needing to pass bladder stones. What else should I know about Tamsulosin? It may take up to three days for Tamsulosin to start having a full effect. What problems could my dog or cat have with Tamsulosin? Higher dosages may cause low blood pressure. Do not crush sustained release tablets as this may increase the likelihood of this dangerous effect. How do you use Tamsulosin?
