Uroeze is a veterinary medication that contains ammonium chloride used to raise the urine pH of dogs and cats. Despite its effectiveness at treating bladder stones, Uroeze has the potential to cause side effects in some pets.
Types of Side Effects
Possible side effects of Uroeze include nausea, vomiting, increased thirst, panting, rapid breathing and drowsiness, according to Doctors Foster and Smith.
The gastrointestinal side effects of Uroeze are often reduced when the drug is taken with food, reports Doctors Foster and Smith.
In order to ensure that your pet is not receiving too much medication, your veterinarian is likely to test the animal's urine regularly throughout treatment.
If your pet develops swelling of its face, scratching, hives, diarrhea, cold limbs, seizures, shock or coma, seek emergency medical attention as these are signs of a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.
Pets with a history of kidney, heart or liver disease should not take Uroeze. The drug is also not safe for use in kittens.
