Prilactone is used to prolong the life of dogs with congestive heart failure. It acts to reduce the formation of fibrous tissue in the heart muscle. It is usually given alongside other medication to improve the quality of life and reduce the symptoms of heart trouble, such as coughing and reduced ability to take exercise. A significant extension to good quality life has been shown to occur in dogs treated with Prilactone.

Prilactone is not associated with any particular side effects in most animals.

It is not suitable for treatment of young growing dogs, or pregnant or lactating bitches.

Shrinkage of the prostate gland can occur in adult males, but is not usually of clinical significance.
