Commonly prescribed for: Medical Management of Primary and Secondary Glaucoma
Species: Dogs and Cats
Therapeutic Class: Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitor (CAI)
Methazolamide is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor (CAI) that is used in the medical management of both primary and secondary glaucoma. Carbonic anhydrase is an enzyme that is necessary for the production of aqueous humor. Methazolamide inhibits this enzyme, resulting in a decrease of the production of aqueous humor, and lower intraocular pressure. Other effects of CAI’s include increased renal excretion of sodium, potassium, and bicarbonate. Animals that are receiving CAI’s will have increased urinary pH, increased urine volume, and a tendency towards metabolic acidosis.
