Digoxin is available by prescription only. Digoxin is a cardiac glycoside. When the heart loses its ability to contract effectively, Digoxin is used to stimulate the heart’s contractions. Digoxin is used to treat heart failure and irregular heartbeats. Digoxin increases the availability of calcium to the heart muscle, thus making the heart pump blood more efficiently.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • Increases contraction strength of the heart

How it works

Digoxin works by affecting the minerals sodium and potassium inside your pet's heart cells. This action reduces strain on the heart and helps it maintain a normal, steady, and strong beat.

Storage:

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

Because the difference between the treatment dose and the dose that causes side effects is small, do not adjust medication without contacting the veterinarian.
  • Digoxin is a prescription medication used in dogs and cats for the initial and chronic treatment of congestive heart failure, and atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.
