Product Info:

Anipryl is used for the treatment of canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CCD) and pituitary dependent hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing’s Disease). Canine cognitive dysfunction occurs when dogs lose mental functioning due to the accumulation of protein beta-amyloid plaques. Beta-amyloid plaque leads to impaired functioning, senile behavior, and confusion. Canine pituitary dependent hyperadrenocorticism occurs when the pituitary gland becomes enlarged, resulting in excessive ACTH production.
Anipryl requires a prescription from your veterinarian.




  • First and only FDA-approved drug used to control clinical signs associated with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome
  • First and only product approved to control uncomplicated PDH (pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism) Cushing's disease

How it works:

Anipryl increases the concentration of a nervous system messenger chemical called dopamine. Higher levels of dopamine improve many cognitive processes. Treating Cushing's Disease has traditionally been centered on suppressing the adrenal gland's production and release of cortisone. However, this approach has a high potential for side effects. Selegiline has allowed for a new approach by suppressing the pituitary gland directly.


Should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat.

How to Use:

Do not give more of this medication than is prescribed without consulting your veterinarian. Anipryl may cause drowsiness or dizziness.
  • Anipryl is a prescription medication used in dogs for the treatment of Cushing's disease caused by a pituitary tumor.
  • Anipryl is also used in dogs to treat canine cognitive dysfunction.
