Consult with your veterinarian regarding the physical examinations and laboratory testing necessary prior to and during treatment with aminocaproic acid. 

Drug, Food and Test Interactions 
Notify your veterinarian of any other medications, including vitamins and supplements your pet is taking while your pet is receiving aminocaproic acid.
