Vetmedin Chewable Tablets are used for the management of congestive heart failure in dogs due to atrioventricular valvular insufficiency (AVVI) or dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). It differs from other commonly used heart drugs because it helps the heart pump more efficiently. Vetmedin Chewable Tablets contain pimobendan.

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.

Storage:

Store at controlled room temperature 59-86ºF (15-30ºC).

Dogs (6 months or older)

Vetmedin is available as beef-flavored chewable tablets.
