Missed Doses                                    

Give the dose as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, and continue with the regular schedule. Do not give 2 doses at once.

Side Effects

Your pet may experience vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, dehydration, poor appetite, and weight loss.   Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.

Drug & Food Interactions

The following drugs can potentially interact with Bexacat™: amlodipine, atenolol, benazepril, dexamethasone, enalapril, estrogens, fludrocortisone, furosemide, glipizide, hydrochlorothiazide, insulin, NSAIDs, prednisone, prednisolone, salix, and telmasartan.  Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together. 

Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving to your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, and a drug interaction may be anticipated. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. 

Cautions

For oral use in cats only.  Not for use in humans. 

Do not use Bexacat™ in cats who have previously been treated with insulin, who are receiving insulin, or in cats with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Due to risk of severe adverse reactions, do not use Bexacat™ in cats with evidence of hepatic disease or reduced renal function.

The use of Bexacat™ in cats with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, or the withdrawal of insulin and initiation of Bexacat™, is associated with an increased risk of diabetic ketoacidosis or euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis and death.

Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform Vetsource and your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; widespread hives and itching.

If you are concerned that your pet has experienced an adverse reaction to this medication, please contact the manufacturer Elanco at 888-545-5973 or Vetsource customer service at 877-738-4443.

Great customer service!


When prescription complications (not of their making) occurred, Baxter Boo people took personal steps and follow-up to fix my pets prescription order and assure it was received.
