Vetmedin 161 161
Beyond Blessed Allie, the best dog any one could ask for, was diagnosed with heart worms a year ago. My family was heartbroken watching her suffer and willing to spend whatever it took even if it only meant one more day. She was treated and we were told her lifetime may be very short the day we brought her home. I took her to another vet recently for more advice on her sickness and they put Allie on Vetmedin. That day changed not only Allie's life, but mine too! It was so sad to watch her become out of breath with little activity and seem as though it was all she could to get her next breath. I gave Allie her first does when we came home from the vet and by that night she was a total different dog!! She was able to rest without panting and had the personality of a 6-month puppy. She now absolutely loves to ride, go outside, visit the pet store and more! I thank Vetmedin everyday that I go to sleep and wake up with Allie at the foot of my bed. I couldn't imagine life without her and Vetmedin has given me the opportunity to continue to care for my companion. THANK YOU VETMEDIN FOR CHANGING ALLIE'S LIFE!! 04/06/2011
Vetmedin tablets These tablets have proven to be a god send for our Gypsy. She now acts and plays like a 6 year old dog, her breathing is a lot better, she doesn't get as puffed out while playing and she now can do her favourite thing and play with her ball. The kids are amazed at how much younger she acts, Yes I would say she is definitely one of the kids again. Ha Ha Try them and see the difference. Thank you for all the help given to us. 03/16/2011
Vetmedin Vetmedin: In my opinion, there has not been such a beneficial drug released approved for small animals for a major health threatening problem than vetmedin. For years veterinarians and veterinary cardiologists have for the most part had to rely on a few very narrow type drugs. One group called diuretics include drugs like furosemide(lasix) and spironolactone, while the other group called ACE inhibiters(including enalopril and benazopril) have indeed helped many pets with diseases of the heart valves and heart muscle. However in those severe cases of advanced heart disease, these drugs were often only partially effective, and many pets unfortunately needed to be euthanized. Using older drugs like digoxin to help the failing heart often led to severe and health threatening side effects making our therapeutic options limited in these pets. That was until this drug was approved a few years ago. Not only have I found it so valuable in helping cases of advanced congestive heart failure, but in my practice I will often start pets with moderate mitral valve disease and early symptoms on this wonderful medication. By acting both to dilate blood vessels in front of and behind the heart, as well as effectively increase the force of contraction of the heart, vetmedin works wonderfully often in combination with diuretics and/or the ACE inhibiter drugs mentioned above. I have definitely seen dogs live often years more than they used to before this drug came out. The only occasional side effect I have seen is mild digestive upset and on occasion decline in kidney function, most commonly when used in combination with the diuretics and ACE inhibiters. However with periodic blood monitoring both before starting therapy and every few months, these side effects can be minimized. I give this product an overall rating of a 5 with ease of use/taste a 4. 08/04/2009
A miracle medicine No doubt, my little dog was going downhill fast with recently diagnosed congestive heart failure which seemed to come out of no where and suddenly! This is a miracle drug, it has been 7 months since she has been on this medication and it's almost as if she never had the heart condition. Both her mother and her twin sister passed away 2 years ago from the same heart condition and the vet never prescribed this nor did they send me to a cardiac specialist. I feel so guilty now because I know the other dogs would have also lived much longer if we had been referred to the heart specialist and if they were also put on this medication ( along with the water pills). My remaining little dog is almost 15 years old now and I hope and feel that on this medication that she will live years longer easily! 01/16/2015

The guidelines for dosage are .23 per lb of body weight. My Pom weighs 12 lbs and was prescribed a dosage of 5mg once a day. If my calculations are correct, she should be getting a dose of 2.76mg every 12 hours. After reading all of this new information I'm worried that this dosage is incorrect and might have harmed her. Is that normal?
