Rated 4 out of 5by 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. 07/08/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by It works!My 16+year old CrackerJack was really responded positively to this drug. Labs came back this Wednesday and everything looks good. 06/28/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by Works Well with other MedicationsI 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). 10/27/2012

Rated 5 out of 5by Vetmedinthese meds seriously saved me cats like when she was diagnosed at 3 yrs old with advanced heart disease. 3 months later and she is still fighting the battle! Thanks PetCareRx 08/28/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by 3 Yr. Old CatMy 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! 08/27/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by yorkieMy 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!! 07/11/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by A miracleMy 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. 09/11/2011
Rated 5 out of 5by Miracle drugI 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. 1, 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. 04/24/2011
Rated 5 out of 5by Lifesaving drug for my poodleWe 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. 04/02/2010
Rated 5 out of 5by Worth every penny!Duke is our 11 yr.Terrier mix...looks like Toto in the W of Oz but a bit bigger. But really could be his twin. In mid-December, (Dec of 2009) we were out for our morning walk. I got a little ahead of him and looked back and he was down on the ground and out cold. I freaked, thought I had lost him. Well, a few seconds later (seemed like hours!) he came too. Well, he had passed out. The reason...pulmonary edema (fluid of lungs) due to conjestive heart failure. Basically, because of the fluid in and around his lungs, he couldn't breath and passed out. Later, the EKG confirmed the heart condition and the Doc informed us of the reality...maybe 6 months to a year to live. We immediately got him on Benzopril and Fuerosomide. He improved pretty dramatically within a day or so. His breathing was less labored. We stopped walking him and outdoor activity was limited to our back yard. His mood was fair. His sleeping was pretty good and he was able to sleep on his side fairly comfortably. His breathing was pretty good, not great. I could still here him wheeze a tad during his sleep but he was ok. We have three other dogs, so he wasn't lonely but its was a struggle keeping him calm. We even put a sign on our front door saying "please don't knock" because he would bark himself to death otherwise. Nevertheless, the Benzopril and Fuerosomide were working pretty well, but still you could tell he wasn't 100%. His appetite was ok. Most of the time he was sort of hungry and he'd eat, but then some days he wouldn't eat at all. By the end of Feb (roughly 2 1/2 months later) and within 1 day, I noticed an immediate and dramatic decline marked by labored breathing and wheezing, discomfort laying down on his stomach and some coughing. Well, again, my wife and were preparing for the worst. Well, that's when the Doc said it was time to put him on the Vetmedin (along with the Fuerosomide and Benzopril). Well, folks, WOW, what a turnaround! He is like a puppy and his appetite is voracious! It's just incredible. In fact, I have to feed him by hand now because he was enhaling his food soooo fast, he truly almost passed out. And it wasn't a heart-related thing. He was just sucking down his food! Well, today is April 1, 2010. It's only been 3 1/2 months since the original diagnosis and only a month since we started the Vetmedin. But, I have to say, these past 30 days have been worth every penny of the cost and a true joy! Initially, and sadly, the reality was, we were basically watching Duke die, day by day. But now, since starting him on Vetmedin...he truly acts like a silly, young, loveable puppy! The reality...we don't know how long this will last. And we take our "gift" one day at a time. But so far, every day has been wonderful! He does cough a couple times a day, usually when he's been lying on his side and wakes up too fast. But he sleeps so peacefully now (and while on his side). His breathing is silent and calm. 1, I guess Vetmedin is expensive (around $70ish), but our 15 year old Golden is on Deremaxx for his arthritis and it is equally as expensive. My point...it is worth it. If I felt like we were simply pumping Duke with drugs to satisfy our selfish needs, I would not let it happen. I highly reccomend it. 04/01/2010
