What is Clopidogrel?

Clopidogrel is an anticoagulant, antiplatelet medication for both cats and dogs. It's given to pets to prevent the formation of blood clots in the bloodstream due to injuries. In addition to helping with blood clots due to injuries, Clopidogrel is used to prevent clotting in instances of feline cardiomyopathies, thrombosis, pulmonary hypertension, and other disorders that may increase the risk of clotting. Clopidogrel is available in a 75 mg tablet, requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • Inhibits formation of platelets
  • Prevents blood clotting
  • Reduces risks of clotting due to injury or other disorders
  • Sold per tablet

How does Clopidogrel work?

Clopidogrel prevents the formation of blood clots by inhibiting the formation of platelets, which are cells that respond to injury by clotting. Clopidogrel decreases the ability of platelets to stick together

Cautions:

Because of the prevention of blood clots, Clopidogrel increases the risk of bleeding in your pet as a result of the body not being able to clot efficiently. Monitor your pet's stool because black or tarry stool can indicate a bleed in the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Brand Name:

Plavix

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Clopidogrel to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is hypersensitive to Clopidogrel. Let your veterinarian know of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking.

How should Clopidogrel be given to my pet?

Administer Clopidogrel exactly as your veterinarian prescribes. Also, give Clopidogrel with food to avoid stomach upset. Do not stop giving your pet Clopidogrel without consulting your veterinarian.

What are the potential side effects of Clopidogrel?

Side effects of Clopidogrel may include an increased risk of bleeding, vomiting, and anorexia. However, potential side effects might be alleviated when given with food.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Clopidogrel?
