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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moirasmom1 Great product
Any product that helps to keep my baby's heart working better has my vote! She's 14 and has heart disease and she's been on this medicaiton for almost 2 years. She's doing great!! It's expensive and I do wish there was a generic version THAT WORKED AS WELL!! Because I'll pay the price as long as my girl is with me... :-) I suggest doing whatever you can to get coupons or points on the site you order it from, It really helps with the high cost.
This product helps my heart too.. because it would break if I lost my girl!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanSM Best to buy from PetCareRX
I was so impressed with the customer service and response here. First off, you save money, second they keep you in the loop and tell you constantly the status of the order.
Next is the product itself. I started it on 11/2 (well my kid did) and it's now 1/8/14. I'd like to think it's helping him. Vetmedin has rave reviews and considering he wasn't feeling so hot before, it must totally be helping.
Be sure to buy here. It's well worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pang The product I order is the exact same as I get from my vet, no generics.
I like the product because it the very same as I get from my vet. It is not a generic. Therefore, I can give my dog the exact dosage the vet writes on my dog's prescription.

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).
