What is Benazepril?

Benazepril is used to treat minor to severe heart failure, high blood pressure, or loss of protein in the kidney due to some kidney diseases. It lowers blood pressure, lowers the stress on the heart, and reduces fluid build-up in the lungs. It is often given along with Furosemide or Digoxin. Benazepril requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.
