Glipizide is used to treat type II diabetes in cats along with diet, exercise, and insulin therapy if necessary. Glipizide requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats

Benefits:

  • Normalizes blood sugar levels in cats with type II diabetes
  • Highly effective when combined with low-carbohydrate diet
  • Easy administration via oral tablets

How it works

Glipizide is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug in a class called sulfonylureas. It acts by causing the pancreas to release insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar.

Storage:

Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of the reach of children.

Glipizide may cause blood sugar levels to be too low. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, fast heart beat, sweating, tremor and nausea. Treat hypoglycemia in cats by applying a quarter teaspoon of Karo Syrup to the cat's gums. Routine blood tests, urinalysis, and kidney function tests may be needed.
Pet Weight Dosage
Cats All weights 2.5mg to 5mg per cat by mouth twice a day with food.

Cautions

Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Use glipizide with caution in pets with diabetes in combination with an excess of cortisol or growth hormone. Glipizide should not be used in pets suffering from acidotic conditions, hypoglycemic conditions, infections, or severe burns. Use with caution if your pet is pregnant or nursing. Several drugs may potentially interact with glipizide, including antifungals, beta-blockers, chloramphenicol, cimetidine, corticosteroids, diuretics, MAO Inhibitors, phenothiazines, sulfonamides, thyroid agents, or warfarin. Tell your veterinarian about any and all medication your pet is taking before starting glipizide. Store at room temperature. Store in a closed container, protected from light and moisture.

Possible Side Effects

Glipizide can cause hypoglycemia, which can be serious. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving glipizide and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives). Other less serious side effects may occur due mostly to blood sugar levels that are too low or too high. Symptoms of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar include shaking; headache; pale, cool skin; and anxiety. Symptoms of hyperglycemia or high blood sugar include increased thirst, hunger and urination. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.
