Glipizide is used to treat type II diabetes in cats along with diet, exercise, and insulin therapy if necessary. Glipizide requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Glipizide is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug in a class called sulfonylureas. It acts by causing the pancreas to release insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar.
Glipizide is the Generic Alternative to Glucotrol.
Side Effects & Warnings
Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease, thyroid disease, a serious infection, illness or injury, or if your pet needs surgery. Also tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating. Side effects include vomiting, loss of appetite, and jaundice. Hypoglycemia may occur.
Glipizide may cause blood sugar levels to be too low. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, fast heart beat, sweating, tremor and nausea.
Treat hypoglycemia in cats by applying ¼ teaspoon of Karo Syrup to the cat’s gums. Routine blood tests, urinalysis, and kidney function tests may be needed.
Glipizide 5 mg.
Follow dosage as prescribed by your veterinarian.
Cats (All weights): 2.5 mg to 5 mg per cat by mouth twice a day with food.
