Sildenafil Uses in Veterinary Medicine
Sildenafil’s effect on the pulmonary vasculature makes the drug useful in treating dogs.

In dogs, the drug is most often prescribed to treat heart and lung problems, including pulmonary hypertension resulting from heart failure, pulmonary abnormalities, and cardiac abnormalities. Sildenafil relaxes the lungs, which allows blood to flow more readily, and decreases stress on the heart.

Sildenafil – Precautions and Potential Side Effects in Veterinary Medicine
Some dogs have experienced flushed or red skin and digestive distress while under treatment with Sildenafil. In the event of accidental overdose, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Sildenafil should be kept out of reach of children, and should only be administered to the dog for which it was prescribed.

This medication should not be given to dogs suffering from shock, blood loss, or low blood pressure, and should not be used with drugs that lower blood pressure, including but not limited to nitrates, amlodipine, and nitroprusside sodium.

The drugs cimetidine, rifampin, phenobarbital, itraconazole erythromycin, clarithromycin, and ketoconazole may also cause undesirable drug interactions when given in concert with Sildenafil.
