Enalapril is a medication classified as an ACE inhibitor (angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor). It is designed to relax the blood vessels in order to lower blood pressure and to reduce how hard the heart needs to work. It is used primarily in the treatment of heart failure in dogs. It can also be used in cats, ferrets, and birds in many formulations. In combination with furosemide, a diuretic, enalapril has been shown to improve the quality of life in dogs with heart failure.
Enalapril can be given with or without food. Do not stop giving your animal enalapril without talking with your pet's veterinarian. If you miss giving your pet the dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. Do not double up on doses. If you are unsure when to give the missed dose, contact your pet's veterinarian.
Do not give enalapril to pregnant or lactating dogs or cats.
