Possible Side Effects:

Be sure to discuss any side effects with your veterinarian immediately.

Desmopressin acetate can cause irritation to the eye or conjunctiva.

Too much desmopressin acetate will cause swelling and water retention. At the beginning of treatment you may need to work with your veterinarian to arrive at the appropriate dose for your pet.


Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. Desmopressin acetate is a prescription drug and should be used according to your veterinarian’s directions. It should only be given to the animal for which it was prescribed. Do not give this medication to a person.

Desmopressin acetate should not be used in animals that are prone to forming blood clots. This includes most animals with underlying heart disease.

Desmopressin acetate has not been studied in pregnant dogs or cats. Large doses have been given to pregnant laboratory animals without apparent harm to the fetus. It should only be used if the benefits outweigh the potential risk.  

Drug Interactions

Be sure to review with your veterinarian any medications or supplements your pet may be receiving.

The following drugs may increase the effects of desmopressin acetate: fludrocortisone, chlorproamide and urea.


Different strengths or dosage forms of desmopressin acetate may have different storage requirements. Read the labeling or ask your pharmacist for the storage requirements of the prescription you receive.


It is important to follow your Veterinarian's prescription instructions for your pet. If you miss giving your pet a dose of desmopressin acetate, give the next dose as soon as you remember or, if it is close to the next scheduled dose, return to the regular schedule. Do not double dose to catch up.
Desmopressin acetate is usually given as an eye drop. Your veterinarian may give it by intravenous injection or by injection under the skin. It can not be given by mouth.

When desmopressin acetate is used to treat central diabetes insipidus, it is generally given once or twice a day in the conjunctiva (lower eyelid sac).

Wash your hands after giving your pet this medication.
