Product information

What is Amantadine used for in pets?

Amantadine is an antiviral medication that is primarily used in small animals for the treatment of pain. Amantadine can be used alongside other pain medications. such as NSAIDs, opioids, or gabapentin. However, Amantadine should only be used in animals if prescribed by a veterinarian. It is not recommended for use without the supervision of a vet and can cause harmful side effects when used incorrectly. Talk to your veterinarian about whether or not Amantadine is the right choice for your pet's condition.

Can Amantadine for humans be taken by pet?

Yes. Amantadine is safe for cats and dogs when prescribed by a veterinarian. Veterinarians will typically determine the correct dosage and duration of treatment based on the type of infection being treated and other factors such as age, weight, and overall health condition.

What is the dosage of Amantadine for pets?

The dosage of Amantadine for animals will vary depending on the animal's size, weight, and underlying condition. Always follow the instructions provided by your veterinarian when giving medication to your pet. Do not change the dosage or discontinue use without consulting your vet first.

How do I give my pet Amantadine?

Amantadine is usually given orally as a tablet, capsule or liquid solution. It can be given with or without food, but if your pet experiences vomiting after receiving the medication on an empty stomach, try giving it to them with a small meal or treat.

Taking too much Amantadine can also lead to more serious symptoms such as tremors, anxiety, incoordination and increased salivation and vomiting. If you notice any of these signs, contact your vet immediately.

What is the cost of Amantadine for pets?

The cost of Amantadine for pets can vary depending on the formulation, dosage strength and quantity needed. As Amantadine is a medicine used to treat humans as well, you can typically get it for a better price if you buy it from a pharmacy than if you get it from the vet.
