Instructions
Recommended Dosage

The initial dose of Semintra is 1.5 mg/kg (0.68 mg/lb) orally twice daily for 14 days, followed by 2 mg/kg (0.91 mg/lb) orally once daily. The dose may be reduced by 0.5 mg/kg (0.23 mg/lb) increments to a minimum of 0.5 mg/kg (0.23 mg/lb) orally once daily to manage Semintra-induced hypotension. Semintra can be administered directly into the mouth, or next to or on top of a small amount of food. Do not mix into food. Semintra should be administered using the dosing syringe provided in the package. The dosing syringe fits onto the bottle and has 0.1 mL incremental marks. The dose should be rounded to the nearest 0.1 mL. After administration close the bottle tightly with the cap. Rinse the dosing syringe with water and let air dry. If the cat vomits within 30 minutes of dosing, the cat may be re-dosed.

Storage Instructions

Store at or below 77°F with excursions permitted up to 104°F.

FAQ

What is Semintra?

The only angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) for first-line treatment of hypertension in cats

How does Semintra work?

Because ARBs feature a unique, targeted mode of action that specifically blocks the harmful vasoconstrictive effects of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), Semintra is shown to quickly lower blood pressure within 14 days. It is shown to be effective in cats with primary and secondary hypertension and proven to be safe and effective.

    Works wonders

    By on

    This medication has worked wonders for my 17 yo kitty who was diagnosed with hypertension earlier this year. She went from hiding under the bed and bullying her little sister to the more chill and relaxed kitty I've always known and loved. Pro: The medication works fantastic. Cons: The syringe and bottle leave much to be desired; I know this isn't Chewy's fault, but others should be aware before they spill this expensive medication like I did. I have RA and don't always have the steadiest of hands. If your hand slips just a bit, you'll find that the liquid will pour out rapidly.

I have RA and don't always have the steadiest of hands. If your hand slips just a bit, you'll find that the liquid will pour out rapidly. The opening is just large enough for the syringe to fit into place, but it is also shallow with a slightly smaller hole inside to prevent the syringe from plunging all the way in. I ordered glass bottles with lids that seal tight to put the next shipment in so that I can just stick the syringe inside without having to turn the bottle upside down. You could possibly take the plastic piece off of the top of the bottle it comes in and have the same effect, but this could be challenging for someone with arthritis. The liquid should pour into the new bottle when I get it, it sure did pour onto the floor very easily, lol. … more
