Atenolol treats hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, in dogs and cats. It also treats tachyarrhythmia, or abnormally elevated heart rate. This medication acts as a Beta1-blocker.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • May reduce risk of heart complications following a heart attack
  • Treats cardiovascular diseases and conditions (hypertension, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, and angina (chest pain))
  • Lowers blood pressure and treats enlarged hearts in cats

How it works

Atenolol is a beta-blocker that works by affecting the response to nerve impulses in certain parts of the body. As a result, the heart beats slower and decreases blood pressure. When your pet's blood pressure is lowered, the amount of blood and oxygen to the heart is increased.

Storage:

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

  • Atenolol is used to lower blood pressure and to treat enlarged hearts in cats.
  • Do not stop giving atenolol abruptly unless you are directed to do so by your veterinarian. Stopping abruptly may make the condition worse. Atenolol may cause drowsiness.
  • Atenolol is a beta-blocker available by prescription and used in dogs, cats, and ferrets to treat certain heart conditions such as arrhythmias.
