Throughout treatment, your veterinarian should closely monitor blood electrolytes, kidney values, and urinalysis. Checkup is recommended within 2 weeks of treatment initiation. If treatment is indicated for the purpose of high blood pressure, ensure that your veterinarian monitors blood levels closely. Always keep an eye on your pet at home. If a dose is accidentally missed, never administer two doses at once. Administer the skipped dose as soon as possible, unless it is almost time for the next dose - in which case, the missed dose should be skipped altogether.
Use as prescribed by your veterinarian.
