You love your dog with all your heart, so help protect your dog's heart with Vetmedin (Pimobendan). Vetmedin is a prescription inodilator that helps extend the life expectancy of dogs with congestive heart failure by helping the heart pump more efficiently.
Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels that take blood away from the heart, reducing the work heart has to do to pump blood. It also opens up the blood vessels returning blood to the heart, reducing pressure on the heart. Talk to your vet about Vetmedin to find out if it's right for your dog.
Side Effects and Warnings
Side effects may include loss of appetite, lethargy, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, weakness, incoordination, fainting, cough, and sudden death. Consult your veterinarian if any side effects occur or worsen.
Notify your veterinarian of any additional medications, including vitamins and supplements. Interactions may occur with pimobendan and verapamil, propranolol, theophylline, and pentoxifylline.

by Lucy0705 My dog takes this medication with no problem
My dog has heart disease and this medication helps with her ability to have a "somewhat" normal life. All of my pets medication is purchased through PetcareRX. It is easy and saves me a lot of money on prescription drugs

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mau1969 My shih-tzu feels better!
His heart is beating more regularly, I wouldn't have believed it! The only thing is my having to crush this med in order for my dog to eat it; such a pain in the butt!! lol. Also, add peanut butter, and sometimes put it down his throat when all else fails! Really messy for a just groomed dog!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Missymoo Great product
This medicine has given my dog a new lease of life. She even gets her toys out for a play now! The tablets are large and chewable but I prefer to crush them which they do easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dixieisthebestdog great for heart disease
The medication is great I do not want to order from petcarerx anymore because their customer service has went way downhill. when you order your medication now they take over a week just to ship it to you and then it takes shipping time they have started to use a separate company to contact with and they send out the medication for them and ever since they have moved to that system they are no longer good to order from anymore it takes too long to get your medication.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LarryTexas Effective though expensive medication.
Vetmedin is very effective in my mid sized dog. It is easy to break up and put in food. It is an expensive prescription but there seems to be no good alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceanbiz Price is very good
I have no way to know exactly how effective Vetmedin since my dog cannot tell me. However, I trust the Veterinarian recommendation. The price is excellent from Petcarerx.com
