Signs of low blood pressure include weakness/collapse, other kidney problems, increased drinking/urination, slowed heart rate, and a weak pulse. Contact your veterinarian if you notice any behaviors or symptoms that seem unusual after beginning Enalapril.

Interactions are possible when Enalapril is used along with vasodilators or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

    It's Working!

    By on

    Our 14+ yr old Mini Schnauzer was diagnosed 4 1/2 months ago with advanced kidney failure. She was prescribed this drug and Royal Canin Renal Support dog food. After a recent visit, our vet was impressed as my dog's numbers were even better than when she was diagnosed. I'm not sure what's responsible for the good results, but I thought I'd pass our experience along. Good luck!

    Odd Shaped Pills Not Good for Quartering

    By on

    My dog has been on this medication for almost two years. I just transferred my prescription to Chewy and bought double my usual order size because the price was so good. However, when I got the pills I quickly realized they were unusable. My dog requires 1/4 tablet twice a day. All his pills in the past have been round and scored down the middle and then I just cut the halves in half. BUT, these new pills are TRIANGULAR. I tried and tried to figure out a way to make four equal doses, but it is impossible with a triangle-shaped pill. I'm not willing to be so haphazard about my dog's medication dosage, so all 60 pills I bought are not usable to me at all.

I'm not willing to be so haphazard about my dog's medication dosage, so all 60 pills I bought are not usable to me at all. If your dog requires a half a pill, you'll be fine as the triangle is scored. But if you need to quarter your pills, beware that the photo of the round pill that is shown on this item is not accurate. I never would have bought this medication if they showed the pill as triangle-shaped. Chewy, please sell ROUND pills. Or at least, please change the photo you have on this product to accurately depict this pill is triangle-shaped so people know that before purchasing. Thank you. … more
