Product Description

Cardalis is a prescription cardiac drug meticulously formulated to manage congestive heart failure in dogs. This condition, marked by the heart's inability to pump blood efficiently, can severely impact a dog's quality of life. Cardalis works to alleviate symptoms and improve cardiac function, offering relief to furry companions and their worried owners.

  • Composition -Combining the potent effects of spironolactone and benazepril, Cardalis addresses congestive heart failure comprehensively. Spironolactone acts as a diuretic, removing excess fluid and salt from the body, thus reducing the workload on the heart. Meanwhile, benazepril is an ACE inhibitor, effectively lowering blood pressure and supporting cardiac function.

  • Usage -Cardalis is specifically prescribed for dogs grappling with congestive heart failure stemming from atrioventricular insufficiency (AVVI). Whether the condition presents as mild, moderate, or severe, Cardalis can be tailored to suit the individual needs of each furry patient. It's typically incorporated into a holistic treatment plan, often alongside other medications, all under the careful guidance of a veterinarian. Cardalis should be administered with food and handled with gloves for optimal absorption to ensure safety for both the pet and the caregiver.

  • Administration -Strict adherence to the veterinarian's instructions is paramount when administering Cardalis. Pet owners should follow dosage guidelines meticulously, never skipping doses or discontinuing treatment without professional consultation. Consistency is key in managing congestive heart failure effectively, and any adjustments to the treatment regimen should be made under veterinary supervision.

  • Precautions -While Cardalis can work wonders for many dogs, certain precautions must be observed. It should not be administered concurrently with NSAIDs to dogs suffering from renal insufficiency. Additionally, Cardalis is not suitable for dogs with hypoadrenocorticism, hyperkalemia, hyponatremia, or known hypersensitivity to ACE inhibitors or spironolactone. Careful consideration of these factors ensures the safety and well-being of the canine patient.

  • Side Effects -As with any medication, Cardalis may elicit adverse effects in some dogs. Common side effects include anorexia, vomiting, lethargy, and diarrhea, which may indicate the need for dosage adjustment or additional veterinary intervention. More severe complications such as renal insufficiency, collapse, liver disease, and urinary incontinence are rare but require immediate medical attention if observed.

  • Storage -To maintain Cardalis' efficacy, it should be stored at controlled room temperature (20 to 25C) in its original container. Excursions between 15C and 30C are permissible but should be minimized to uphold the drug's integrity and potency. Proper storage practices safeguard the medication's effectiveness, ensuring it remains a reliable ally in managing congestive heart failure in dogs.

Ceva, a trusted name in veterinary pharmaceuticals, manufactures Cardalis.

CARDALIS is indicated with concurrent therapy (e.g. furosemide, etc.) for the management of clinical signs of mild, moderate, or severe congestive heart failure in dogs due to atrioventricular valvular insufficiency (AVVI) in dogs only. CARDALIS (spironolactone and benazepril hydrochloride chewable tablets) for dogs contains two active ingredients, spironolactone and benazepril hydrochloride, in a fixed ratio of 8:1 respectively. CARDALIS is supplied as oblong half scored flavored chewable tablets in three sizes:

20 mg spironolactone and 2.5 mg benazepril hydrochloride,
40 mg spironolactone and 5 mg benazepril hydrochloride, and
80 mg spironolactone and 10 mg benazepril hydrochloride.

Note that the option dosages available reflect the benazepril hydrochloride (2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg)

Side Effects & Warnings

Do not administer CARDALIS in conjunction with non-steroidal anti-in­ammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in dogs with renal insu‑ciency. Do not administerCARDALIS to dogs with hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s Disease), hyperkalemia, or hyponatremia. Do not administer CARDALIS to animals with known hypersensitivity to ACE inhibitors or spironolactone.
