ENTYCE® (capromorelin oral solution)

Finally, appetite stimulation is in your control.

Until now, there have been limited therapeutic options to restore appetite. That’s why Aratana Therapeutics created ENTYCE (capromorelin oral solution), the only FDA-approved therapeutic designed to safely and effectively stimulate appetite in dogs. ENTYCE works by mimicking ghrelin (the “hunger hormone”). Administered orally once a day, ENTYCE is appropriate to treat inappetence caused by chronic and acute conditions.


ENTYCE is the ONLY FDA-approved veterinary therapeutic labeled for stimulation of appetite in dogs and is an important tool in the medical management of conditions where appetite is reduced.

Inappetence Overview

More than 10 million dogs in the United States present annually to their veterinarian with the symptom of inappetence.1

Almost any disease can manifest or develop decreased appetite (hyporexia), complete lack of appetite (anorexia) or changes in appetite (dysrexia). Inappetence can be the first sign, and may be the only sign, that a dog is sick or has an underlying health condition. Prolonged inappetence, if left untreated, can become even more detrimental to the patient than the underlying primary disease.

In addition, inappetence can represent a negative perception of the quality of life to the caregiver, which may be especially distressful and is often perceived as evidence of suffering.
