can this dry cough continue for a long time? also can this medication cause you to get winded when you exhale??
Lisinopril, as well other ACE inhibitors (i.e. enalapril, benazepril), has the potential for causing chronic dry cough. This side effect typically doesn’t resolve until the medication is discontinued. We recommend following up with your veterinarian if your pet is experiencing a cough to rule out this drug adverse effect and to determine the cause of the cough.

Does this med cause hair lost?
The most common side effect associated with lisinopril in pets is stomach upset (loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea). Hair-loss is not a side effect that has been reported with lisinopril. Rarely, skin rashes have been reported. It would be important to speak with your pet’s veterinarian in order to determine the cause of the hair loss and select an appropriate treatment.
