Desmopressin Acetate 0.01% Ophthalmic Solution
Desmopressin acetate is a synthetic form of the hormone vasopressin. Vasopressin, which is also called anti-diuretic hormone, is responsible for regulating how much water the body retains and how much urine the kidneys produce. Animals that do not make enough vasopressin have a medical condition known as Central Diabetes Insipidus. Desmopressin acetate is the treatment of choice for central diabetes insipidus in both dogs and cats. Because there are a number of different causes of increased water consumption and increased urine production, desmopressin acetate can also be used to help make a diagnosis.
Desmopressin acetate should not be used in animals that are prone to forming blood clots. This includes most animals with underlying heart disease. Desmopressin acetate has not been studied in pregnant dogs or cats. Large doses have been given to pregnant laboratory animals without apparent harm to the fetus. It should only be used if the benefits outweigh the potential risk.
