Benazepril is used to treat failures of the heart, elevated blood pressure, and inadequate protein synthesis excreted by the kidneys.
The heart is the power house which keeps the body working. As the heart relaxes and contract it sends blood to every organ of the body, supplying life. All vertebrae containing organisms are unable to survive without the use of the heart. In the condition known as congestive heart failure, the heart muscle fails to function properly. This condition can cause serious complications and can even cause sudden death in serious cases. A pet with a congestive heart failure will present signs and symptoms which link them to this disease. Symptoms of heart failure include; distension of the abdomen, liver enlargement, breathing difficulties, lethargy, weakness, and collapse. Heart failure alone can be caused by a number of underlying conditions, however in congestive heart failure; its underlying cause is due to a structural abnormality. Tears in the heart’s wall, congestive shunts, problems with valves, and a number of other complications can lead to inadequate blood flow to the body.

The kidneys have the morphology similar to the appearance of a chili bean with a red/ brown coloration. The kidneys are the body’s natural filtration system, and amino acid producing organ. Kidneys which do not function properly, however, can cause a number of complications. A dog or cat affected by this condition will display a number of symptoms and signs of contraction. The signs to look for include; Polyuria, polydipsia, diarrhea, vomiting, foul breath, decreased hair coat luster, anorexia, weight loss, depression, and in some cases the dog may go to a coma state.
