Bethanechol is a synthetic cholinergic ester that affects cholinergic receptors. These receptors exist throughout the body. In dogs and cats, the primary effect of bethanechol is on the urinary bladder's strength of contraction.
Bethanechol increases the speed of rhythmic contractions in esophageal muscle; increases tone in the esophageal sphincter muscle; increases gastric and intestinal tone and contractility; and increases tone in the detrusor muscle of the bladder wall.
