Description

Vitofyllin is given to older dogs to improve their alertness and energy levels. It has a variety of effects in the body, including improving blood flow to the brain and to muscles, stimulating brain function and acting as an anti-oxidant against free radicals. The usual dose rate is 3-5mg per kilogram bodyweight, given twice daily. Vitofyllin is not absorbed well from the stomach if food is present, so it is much better to give on an empty stomach (or with a tiny morsel of food) and then to feed 30 minutes later.

It was just over a year ago when one of our dogs (almost 12) had what appeared to be a vesticular stroke. It was sudden and we rushed him to an emergency vet. After initial treatment including this tablet, we decided to continue the treatment - a lot cheaper through Viovet. Over the first 6-8 months he still had a very slight funny turn sometimes, a wobble, bit blank and it passed within 30 minutes. So, all you can do is keep your dog calm and still. Touch wood, since then, nothing. He is almost 13 now and has great vitality. It costs us about £30 every 50 days and the delivery is constant and very reliable. The pills are very good all around, with no side-effects. Don't hesitate, they really do work. Google Vitofyllin to read about all the benefits for your fur baby!

Vitofyllin

Tracey

Is it ok for my dog to take Vitofyllin tablets while taking synulox for an infection? Plus could not waiting 30 mins before giving food after giving my dog vitofyllin
be dangerous?

  • VioVet Staff

The datasheet does not state that Vitofyllin should react with medications like Synulox so there should be no issue with this. I recommend running this past your vet though as they should be aware of what medications your pet is on and why.
It is advised to give Vitofyllin 30mins before food because it is best absorbed on an empty stomach. There is no danger giving it with or after food but it might not be as effective if administered in this way.

Vitofyllin vs. RenewMe

Sheila Haight

If my dog is taking RenewMe, what additional benefits would the Vitofyllin give? And can I add Aktivait, or is that too much "stuff"?

  • VioVet Staff

Vitofyllin aims to help support the brain by improving blood supply to it. RenewMe Vitality & Cognitive support is a supplement that nutritionally supports brains function, they both do different things and can be used safely together. Vitofyllin is a prescription only medication so you should discuss with your vet whether your dog needs the drug.
Aktivait contains almost exactly the same ingredients as RenewMe Vitality & Cognitive support so I do not advise using both. I recommend sticking with one or the other.

Vitofyllin

Jackie

My dog stated this medicine on Saturday, and he has suddenly started pooping & peeing in the house. He's 13. Is this a side effect of some sort?

  • VioVet Staff

The listed possible side effects for this product as per the datasheet are as follows:

On rare occasions,(more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000
animals treated), allergic skin reactions, vomiting and cardiac
disturbances have been reported. In these cases, the treatment should be
stopped.

Increased defaecation and urination are not listed side effects. I recommend contacting your vet if this is seen as it could be caused by another underlying issue.

Vitofyllin and worming

Cliff Ayre

My dog is taking vitofyllin twice daily, he is due to be wormed, can I give him worming tablet whilst on vitofyllin.

  • VioVet Staff

Worming is not one of the contraindictations for Vitofyllin as per the datasheet. This means it is likely safe to use them both together. However I recommend double checking with the vet that prescribed you Vitofyllin in case there are any other factors to consider.

Ingredients

Gemma

Is Vitofyllin a steroid?

  • VioVet Staff

It's a vasodilating medication, often used for strokes or geriatric related brain disorders. This is not a steorid.

Correct dose

Sandra

My vet has put my 3.8kg on25mg twice daily, going by your product information she should be on 12.5mg
Can you advise me on this
She’s 16, has started fainting, he also put her on 1.25mg of cardesure twice daily and phenobarbital 15mg twice daily, she is all over the place, wobbly and unstable,

Would appreciate any advise you could give on this

Kind regards

Sandra

  • VioVet Staff

I recommend discussing this with our vet as sometimes off license higher doses are required for certain conditions. As the prescribing surgeon they will have their reasons for the specific doseage they have chosen.

Vitofylin 50mg

ALAN RIDLEY (tagno1)

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Durham, United Kingdom

Since our Lakeland bitch was prescribed vitofylin for vestibular syndrome she seems to be drinking lots more water, is this a side effect?

  • VioVet Staff

Polydipsia (excessive water consumption) is not a known side effect of Vitofyllin. If your dog is drinking more than normal it would be best for your vet to take a look at her since there may be another underlying cause such as Cushings, Diabetes or Hyperthyroidism.
