Diagnosis and Management of Hypertension in Cats*
Diagnosis and Management of Hypertension in Cats
Hypertension is a common problem in older cats which causes significant damage to kidneys, eyes, brain and myocardium. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment minimises long term target organ damage so routine blood pressure measurement is recommended for all “at risk” cats. Treatment with amlodipine (62.5 mg once daily initially) is indicated if systolic blood pressure is consistently > 160 mmHg and/or there is evidence of target organ damage.
