Product Info:

Pimobendan is used in the treatment of congestive heart failure originating from dilated cardiomyopathy or valvular insufficiency.

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 Vetmedin Works:

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:

There is always a risk of drug interactions when using multiple medications in a compromised or geriatric patient. Use with caution with other positive inotropes. As pimobendan is highly protein-bound, monitor carefully if using other drugs with high protein binding. Concurrent use of beta-blockers or calcium-channel blockers may decrease pimobendan-induced effects on myocardial contractility.

Contraindications:

Vetmedin capsules should not be used in cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathies or clinical conditions where an augmentation of cardiac output is not possible for functional or anatomical reasons (e.g. aortic stenosis).
