Theophylline is a widely used, effective bronchodilator that can be prescribed by your veterinarian. This medication treats a variety of pulmonary disorders and may also be used to treat heart disease in animals. This medication works to open and relax airways in a variety of ways. Constricted airways and mucus build up are two of the main culprits behind difficult breathing.
Theophylline aids in relaxing the muscles surrounding the airway so that breathing becomes less difficult. It also increases the movement of cilia in the airway, which helps clear out mucus. This medication is also helpful in strengthening the diaphragm to aid your pet in combating such constrictions in the future and contains caffeine, which acts to stimulate your pet's central nervous system.
Theophylline is the Generic Alternative to Theolair.
Side Effects and Warnings
Side effects when using theophylline include vomiting, central nervous system excitement, fever, rash and palpitations. Side effects usually subside with dosage adjustments and/or continued therapy. Theophylline should not be used in patients allergic to this class of medication. Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals.
Theophylline should be used with caution in patients with severe heart disease, liver or kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, hypertension or stomach ulcers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katherine953 Reduces our dog's wheezing and coughing related to his allergies.
We have used Theophylline with our dog Zippy since we adopted him from a rescue organization in 2005. His allergy problems have been greatly reduced since we started giving him a 100mg tablet twice a day.
