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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Athena Same Product I get from the Vet's Office
Good product, my only complaint was the shipping time from PetCareRx. It advertises 5-7 days, but to Alaska this product took several weeks. There is also no way to expedite the shipping, even if you're willing to pay for it. I ended up having to buy a month's worth from my Vet's office for almost twice the price to make sure my dog didn't go without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChaplainKen Congestive Heart Support
My 11 year old dachshund was diagnosed with CHF last fall and we were given the choice of Digoxin or Vetmedin to control heart rate. With Vetmedin there is not blood level testing. The tablets are very large however and two different vets told me that even though they are chewable, no dogs seem to chew them. They are impossible to hide in treats and seem to flavor food so that the dog realizes it has been added. The only choice is to force them down the throat. It is thus a little difficult to give but are worth not having to take your dog in for continual blood work.
