Are there side effects?
Semintra® has been thoroughly tested for safety. Mild and short-lived side effects such as vomiting and diarrhoea are the most common possible side effects seen with Semintra®. Further details about Semintra® and how to use it can be found in the package leaflet. If you have any concerns, please contact your vet for advice.
Why does my cat need to have their blood pressure re-checked?
Every cat is different so your vet will want to ensure your cat’s dose of Semintra® is working effectively. This is especially important during the first few months of treatment. Once your cat’s blood pressure is stable and under control your vet may want to check their blood pressure every 3-4 months to make sure all is well.
What will my cat’s life be like on Semintra®?
Finding out your cat has high blood pressure can be distressing, but there are many reasons to remain positive. Your cat is likely to require lifelong treatment for their high blood pressure, but lots of cats continue to live happily for many years.
