Atenolol 25mg (per tab) (Manufacturer may vary)
Atenolol is a medication used to treat certain heart diseases, such as arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) for dogs and cats. Atenolol is in a class of drugs called beta-blockers. It is used for the treatment of heart disease, including arrhythmias, in cats, dogs, and certain other small animals. It slows the heart rate and causes the heart to work more efficiently. Atenolol works by blocking a specific type of receptor in the heart. This decreases the heart rate, blood pressure, and the workload of the heart.
- Treats cardiovascular diseases and conditions (hypertension, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, and angina (chest pain))
- Also, lowers blood pressure and treats enlarged hearts in cats
- May reduce risk of heart complications following a heart attack
How It Works
Atenolol is a beta-blocker that works by affecting the response to nerve impulses in certain parts of the body. As a result, the heart beats slower and decreases blood pressure. When your pet’s blood pressure is lowered, the amount of blood and oxygen to the heart is increased
