Details

Fortekor Plus 5mg/10mg contains 5mg pimobendan and 10mg benazepril. It is used in the treatment of congestive heart failure in dogs, where the heart cannot pump enough blood around the body. This can lead to exercise intolerance (inability to carry out physical activity), difficulty breathing and fluid retention.

Fortekor Plus is usually only used in dogs where heart failure is already being controlled by the same doses of pimobendan and benazepril hydrochloride given as separate medicines (i.e. once they have been stabilised). It can be useful to reduce the number of tablets you are giving to your dog.

Pimobendan helps increase the strength with which the heart contracts, and opens up blood vessels carrying blood to and from the heart to reduces the work of the heart.

Benazepril is an ‘angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor’ which helps blood vessels to relax and widen. This allows the blood pressure to drop, reducing the load on the heart. It also helps reduce fluid retention.

Special Instructions & Dose

Fortekor Plus is prescribed in two sizes – 1.25mg/2.5mg and 5mg/10mg tablets.

Fortekor Plus is given twice daily approximately one hour before feeding.

The dose is adjusted according to bodyweight.

The tablets are white and light brown oval shaped with a score line on both sides.

Do not use in cases of hypotension, hypovolaemia, hyponatraemia or acute renal failure.

Do not use during pregnancy and lactation.
