Cats + Medications

  • Acepromazine is used as a sedative and a preanaesthetic agent. Acepromazine may also be used for behaviour modification and to prevent vomiting when travelling (motion sickness).

  • Aciclovir is an antiviral drug. It is used to treat viral conditions affecting the eyes such as conjunctivitis.

  • Ademetionine is used in the treatment of chronic liver (hepatic) problems. It helps the liver cells to function normally and reduces fibrosis of the liver.

  • Allopurinol is used in the treatment of urate stones (calculi, uroliths) affecting the urinary system. Your veterinarian may also prescribe a special diet and medication to change the pH of the urine.

  • Aminophylline or theophylline is used to relieve cough, wheezing, shortness of breath and troubled breathing. The medication works by opening up the air passages of the lungs and increasing the amount of air flowing into the lungs.

  • Amitraz is used to treat mange in dogs. Your veterinarian will need to scrape a small area of your pet's skin to make a diagnosis of mange and also to monitor treatment.

  • Amitriptyline has been prescribed to treat separation anxiety in your dog or to treat excessive grooming, urine spraying and anxiety in cats. Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant.

  • Anabolic steroids stimulate appetite, increase muscle mass, increase skin thickness, and increase production of red blood cells. They are used as an additional treatment in chronic kidney problems, and in animals that are convalescing or debilitated.

  • Unfortunately anthrax has been used as a method of bio-terrorism and cats can be infected, as can most mammals.

  • Different medicines may be prescribed to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestine. They work in various ways to allow the ulcer to heal.
