Uroeze (ammonium chloride) is a urinary acidifier used in adult cats and dogs that helps prevent urinary tract infections. It also dissolves certain types of bladder stones.
For: Dogs & Cats
How it works: Uroeze is a brand of ammonium chloride, which maintains proper urinary pH in your pet. Since bacteria doesn't thrive in an acid environment, this helps fight infections. It also helps to treat and prevent certain types of bladder stones.
Cautions: Uroeze should be given with your pet’s meals. If any of the following side effects occur, stop using Uroeze and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, face, or hives. Also talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences vomiting, increased thirst, panting, or drowsiness. Side effects other than these listed may also occur.
Tip: The dose should be adjusted based on the pet’s diet to consistently maintain the urine pH below 6.6.
Dosage & Administration: Give uroeze exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Give Uroese with food to prevent stomach irritation. Store uroeze at room temperature, away from moisture and heat.
Possible side effects of Uroeze: If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving uroeze and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, face, or hives). Other less serious side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences nausea or vomiting, increased thirst, panting, or drowsiness. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.
If you miss giving a dose: the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose that was missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose, as directed. Do not give a double dose of this medication unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.
