Rated 5 out of 5 Works Well with other Medications
I like that it's a chewable and can be broken up. It makes it easier to administer since my dog is on 2 other heart medications that has to be taken along with Vetmedin. I've seen great improvement in his health since taking this along with the other medications (lasix and enalapril).

Rated 5 out of 5 3 Yr. Old Cat
My cat started looking a little off a few months ago, her breathing was severely labored. After a quick panic attack I rushed her to the vet and was told she was in the advanced stages of heart disease and the chances of her making it through the next few days were slim to none. After a costly vet bill and a lot of crying, all I could do was hope her meds would do the trick. We just passed the 3 month mark and hope for many more happy healthy months ahead of us!

Rated 5 out of 5 yorkie
My prince Joshua aka Justin is a Yorkie. only weight 4 to 6 lb depending on the water accumulation. He was dx as having Pulmonary hypertension. Idiopathic reason. He is only 9 going on 10 in December. He's a great dog. He had water build up from the right side enlarge heart worked so hard for the lung. The enlarged right side heart was the secondary dx to the primary PH dx. Vetmedin along with furosemide, sildenafil (Viagra), Ventolin albuterol helps in all. Great meds!!

Rated 5 out of 5 A miracle
My Italian Greyhound's heart is severely enlarged due to degenerative valve disease, causing him to cough from pressure on his windpipe. In the 3+ months since he has been prescribed this medication, x-ray films show that his heart is smaller due to pumping more efficiently. It has been nothing short of a miracle drug, giving him quality of life for longer than I imagined possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 Miracle drug
I have a 15y/o pom mix who has been on Vetmedin for 3 years; my vet prescribed it when she started showing signs of congestive heart failure, such as coughing, decreased energy level and appetite, wheezing when she got excited and renal insufficiency. She is still doing well, has had a couple of episodes where she had to have Lasix added for a short time; the vet says the Vetmedin has slowed the progression of her heart failure because it was started early in her disease. Yes, it can be expensive, but if you've ever sat up all night with your dog struggling to breathe, you'll do anything to make them feel better. I am grateful for the very good years she has had while on this medicine, and sincerely hope for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 Lifesaving drug for my poodle
We have a twelve year old toy poodle that was diagnosed with congestive heart failure 4 years ago. We started out on endipril and lasix and then he was put on vetmedin. The Vet had given him about six months to live, but here it is 4 years later and he is still going strong. He knows when it is time to take his medicine and wil go to the table and sit until he is given the meds.
I hope that he will be with us for a long while yet. His mother had the same problem and lived to be 18. Vetmedin is truly a miracle drug.
