Vetmedin for Dogs

Vetmedin (Pimobendan) is available in 5mg Vetmedin Capsules and both 5mg Vetmedin Tablets and 1.25mg Vetmedin Tablets. Vetmedin is a drug that is often prescribed for dogs to treat a range of heart conditions such as Congestive Heart Failure in Dogs and is associated with significantly improved survival times.

How Does Vetmedin Work?
Vetmedin Tablets and Capsules open up, or dilate the blood vessels that carry blood to and from the heart. This means that your dog's heart doesn't have to work quite as hard to supply the body with oxygen. Vetmedin also improves the ability of your dog's heart to act as a pump and improves the contractility of the heart muscle.

How will Vetmedin Help my Dog?
Both Vetmedin tablets and capsules can help reduce the signs of congestive heart failure in dogs, lead to a less tired and more active dog and significantly increase the lifespan of dogs in congestive heart failure. Owners generally report that their dog's quality of live dramatically improves following treatment with Vetmedin. A recent global trial called QUEST showed how Vetmedin can help prolong the life of dogs suffering from heart failure relating to underlying mitral valve disease. Another study documented the way in which Vetmedin can prolong the life of Dobermans, suffering from dilated hearts (or DCM).

Are there any side effects that my dog might experience whilst taking Vetmedin?
Vetmedin for dogs is generally tolerated extremely well. On rare occasions, gastrointestinal side-effects may be seen such as vomiting or diarrhoea. If this happens or you are concerned about your dog for any reason, please contact your Vet for advice.

Vetmedin is used for the treatment of canine congestive heart failure originating from dilated cardiomyopathy or valvular insufficiency (mitral and/or tricuspid regurgitation). When Vetmedin for dogs is used in cases of valvular insufficiency in conjunction with frusemide the product has been shown to improve the quality of life and extend life expectancy in treated dogs. When Vetmedin is used in a limited number of cases of dilated cardiomyopathy in conjunction with frusemide, enalapril and digoxin, the product has been shown to improve the quality of life and to extend life expectancy in treated dogs.
