Prilactone Tablets

Heart failure is a condition which is seen relatively frequently in dogs. Prilactone is available on prescription and is often used alongside other heart medicaions in dogs to control some of the symptoms of congestive heart failure. These symptoms include a tendency towards reduced exercise tolerance and increased tiredness, increased panting and the effort required to breath is often exhagerated. Some dogs may also cough or show enlargement of the tummy. Affected dogs may also begin to lose weight. Prilactone is used in combination with standard therapy (including diuretic support, where necessary) for the treatment of congestive heart failure caused by valvular regurgitation in dogs. Prilactone is known as a potassium-sparing diuretic and is sometimes used in combination with other diuretics suct as frusemide if there is concern regarding low potassium levels. However, another important reason for using prilactone is for the beneficial effects that it has upon cardiac remodelling. As the heart tissue becomes diseased, (e.g through problems with the valves), the cells making up the heart muscle (myocardium) can undergo changes that make them less capable of performing their normal function - this change is known as fibrosis. Prilactone reduces fibrosis and has been shown to improve and extend the quality of life of dogs with heart failure that is caused by mitral valve disease.
