About Benazepril Hydrochloride, the Generic to Lotensin

Benazepril Hydrochloride, generic to Lotensin, arms you against your pet's congestive heart failure and hypertension. Many pets are susceptible to congestive heart failure and other heart conditions, but with the right treatment, your pet may be able to perform high impact activities again and live a more active life in general.

Benazepril Hydrochloride is an ACE Inhibitor used to treat heart and vascular disease in dogs and cats. Working as an inhibitor to the overproduction of the hormone angiotensin, Benazepril causes blood vessels to constrict, while simultaneously dilating and relaxing blood vessels, allowing for easier blood flow.

Benzaepril works as an inhibitor of the hormone angiotensin I, which, in the conversion to angiotensin II, causes blood vessels to constrict, resulting in high blood pressure, and decreased blood flow to organs. Benazepril Hydrochloride slows down the increased formation of these hormones, and also works to relax blood vessels. The result is an enhancement of flow through blood vessels.
