What is Mirtazapine?

Mirtazapine is used in behavior modification in dogs and cats on occasion but has been used more often as an appetite stimulant in pets that are reluctant to eat. It is commonly used for long term control of diseases like Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Dogs (IBD) and in elderly renal failure cats.  Some veterinarians may also use it for the treatment of separation anxiety in dogs, inappropriate urination (urine spraying) and anxiety in cats. The use of this drug in cats with interstitial cystitis is based on the condition's association with stress, and increased central nervous system activity occurring as a result of this disorder (because of frequent and painful urination). Mirtazapine requires a prescription from a veterinarian.

Benefits:

  • Appetite stimulant for pets who are reluctant to eat
  • Also used for behavior modification and reduction of stress and anxiety

What are the side effects:

Serotonin syndrome is when the brain levels of serotonin get too high, usually as a result of mirtazapine being taken with other serotonin increasing medications.
