Product Info:

Bethanechol chloride stimulates bladder contractions. This medication is used when an animal’s bladder cannot effectively expel urine, a condition often caused by surgery, or the use of some drugs. It is a synthetic cholinergic ester, therefore it affects cholinergic receptors throughout the body. Bethanechol works by stimulating the receptors found along the bladder wall. When stimulated, these receptors cause the bladder to contract more efficiently and get rid of urine.


Dogs and Cats


  • Treats bladder problems
  • Available in a 5 mg, 10 mg, 25 mg and 50 mg tablet

How it works:

Bethanechol works by stimulating the bladder muscles that are responsible for causing urination.


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

How to Use:

Use as directed by your veterinarian, and follow all instructions printed on the prescription label. Complete the entire prescription unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Dosage and duration of treatment depend on the condition being treated and response to the medication.


Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use on animals with urinary obstructions, recent bladder or intestinal surgery, or a weakened bladder wall. Avoid use in animals with an overactive thyroid gland, gastrointestinal ulcers, inflammatory intestinal disorders, or gastrointestinal obstructions. Use caution in animals with epilepsy, asthma, or low blood pressure. Bethanechol may interact with some other medications. Therefore, inform your veterinarian of any and all medications your pet may be taking. This is especially important if your pet is currently taking epinephrine, atropine, or procainamide. If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while administering this medication, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Possible Side Effects:

Adverse reactions and serious side effects are rare, however, they can occur. In the case of a more serious reaction, seek immediate veterinary attention.
