Hepatotoxicity associated with pharmacologic agents in dogs and cats.


PMID 8503165

Abstract

Historical aspects, mechanisms, and treatment of hepatotoxicity associated with pharmacologic agents in dogs and cats are discussed. All agents that cause clinically relevant drug-induced hepatotoxicity have been reviewed within the last 5 years; therefore, only selected drugs that more recently have been observed to cause hepatic injury in companion animals are described in detail. These include diethylcarbamazine/oxibendazole, phenobarbital, and trimethoprim/sulfadiazine.
