What is Vetmedin?

Vetmedin is used to manage mild, moderate, or severe congestive heart failure in dogs caused by atrioventricular valvular insufficiency or dilated cardiomyopathy. It differs from other commonly used heart drugs because it helps the heart pump more efficiently. Vetmedin requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (6 months or older)

Benefits:

  • Helps pets suffering from congestive heart disease
  • Shown to increase quality and length of life in pets
  • Increases the ability of the heart to pump blood

How does Vetmedin work?

Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels that take blood away from the heart, effectively reducing work the heart does to pump blood. At the same time, Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels returning blood to the heart, reducing pressure on the heart.

Cautions:

If serious side effects or allergic reactions occur, stop giving Vetmedin and seek emergency veterinary medical attention.

Brand Name:

Vetmedin (Boehringer Ingelheim)

Generic Name:

Pimobendan
