Comprehensive Guide to Selegiline

Meet the Aged Behavioral Problem Manager: Selegiline!

Selegiline is a Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor (MAOI) that manages behavioral problems associated with middle-aged and older dogs, such as Parkinson's disease, Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (senility), and Cushing's Disease. Selegiline is a daily oral tablet for both dogs and cats.

How does Selegiline work?

As a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), Selegiline helps in significantly enhancing the concentration of a nervous system messenger chemical known as dopamine, which is used to treat cognitive dysfunction (caused by aging), anxiety, and phobias in animals. Higher levels of dopamine stimulate brain receptors and cognitive processes.

Selegiline contains several ingredients - selegiline hydrochloride, citric acid, lactose monohydrate, maize starch, magnesium stearate, povidone, and talc. Selegiline Hydrochloride (HCL) is an antidepressant that treats Parkinson's disease and depression.

Maize starch in pet foods aids those pets that are suffering from corn allergy. Povidone is a topical cleanser that supports the healing of wounds and skin irritations. Magnesium stearate, povidone, and talc are natural additives. Citric acid is a common additive and a natural functional compound for pet health and wellness.

How is Selegiline administered?

Selegiline is a 5 mg tablet or capsule that is administered orally once a day with or without food. Dogs are usually given in the morning and cats in the evening.

The recommended starting dosage for treating Cushing's disease is .45 mg per pound which is taken in the morning. The recommended starting dosage for Canine C.D.S. is usually .20 to .45 mg per pound.

It may take one month to show significant improvement; however, if no improvement is seen in two months, increase the medication's dosage to .90 mg per pound. Consult your veterinarian for any specifics and adjustments for administration.

What are the potential side effects of which you should be aware?

Selegiline's common adverse reactions include vomiting, disorientation, aggression, hearing loss, decreased appetite, hair loss, trembling, or diarrhea. Overdose symptoms are hypersalivation, panting, or dehydration. Immediately, consult a veterinarian or emergency clinic if any above side effects or any allergic reactions occur.

What are the precautions of which you should be aware?

Be sure to tell your veterinarian about any medications, vitamins, or supplements that your pet is taking.

The following animals have not prescribed Selegiline:

  • Those that are allergic to it

  • Those that are pregnant or lactating

  • Those that have Cushing's disease

  • Those have a pituitary tumor

  • Those that are taking SSRI antidepressants, tricyclic antidepressants, narcotics, or other MAOIs

  • Those that have an adrenal gland-based Cushing's disease
