Great for my lamb with heart disease
My bottle lamb was diagnosed with congenital heart disease at 2 weeks old. Vet gave him a week to live. He was put on 5ml vetmedin snd 40ml furosemide every morning and night. He is now 9 months old and in great condition, without these medications he would be dead. Thank you He is the one with the cheeky grin.

What to do when it's out of stock
I have a Chi-Winnie that was diagnosed with CHF 4 years ago and has been on Vetmedin since. This is a great medication for her, she has maintained her condition without decline but every year we are faced with this OUT-OF-STOCK issue that threatens her life. I searched everywhere for stock but to no avail. Called my vet and they are out of stock as well but the good news was she knew an on-line compounding pharmacy that had the ingredients for this and set us up to have my dogs dose compounded. So to everyone in panic, call your vet and look into having it compounded. The surprise is that it's NOT expensive, it was actually significantly cheaper. Best of Luck, no ones pet should have to suffer because their meds are indefinitely OUT OF STOCK.

Game changer
My 13.5 yr Boston Terrier has been on Vetmedin for almost a year now. Last year he collapsed(seizure) after playtime and was diagnosed with CHF with a grade 5 murmur. My vet said we gotta hope that Vetmedin will be a "game changer" and I'm happy to say it certainly has. His murmur has come down and he's his normal self and he still plays, just at a more gentle pace. Very thankful for this wonderful medicine.

None of the local vets had any of this med in stock and each time I called Pet Med several tiems and they were extremely helpful and supportive. They went above and beyond to be sure we had the vetmedin to save our little dog.

My 15 YO chi Kissis has CHF and was given 6 months 3 years ago. Because of Vetmetim I have my baby back. Not only has it extended his life, but his QUALITY OF LIFE. Runs around like a puppy again. Down side is it’s never available and really expensive. Unfortunately, my pup will literally suffer and die without this med. double edge sword. Love it and hate it.

My dog is on the 1.25 mg Vetmedin. The size of the pill is much larger than the same dose pill I got from my vet. Both are brand name, not generic, but one was made in Mexico, the other in Spain. Has anyone else seen this size discrepancy?

Hi Joy, The Vetmedin that originated in Spain is about a half size smaller than the Vetmedin that originated in Mexico. This information has been confirmed with the manufacturer.

What is Vetmedin?

Vetmedin is used to manage mild, moderate, or severe congestive heart failure in dogs caused by atrioventricular valvular insufficiency or dilated cardiomyopathy. It differs from other commonly used heart drugs because it helps the heart pump more efficiently. Vetmedin requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (6 months or older)

Benefits:

  • Helps pets suffering from congestive heart disease
  • Shown to increase quality and length of life in pets
  • Increases the ability of the heart to pump blood

How does Vetmedin work?

Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels that take blood away from the heart, effectively reducing work the heart does to pump blood. At the same time, Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels returning blood to the heart, reducing pressure on the heart.

Cautions:

If serious side effects or allergic reactions occur, stop giving Vetmedin and seek emergency veterinary medical attention.

Brand Name:

Vetmedin (Boehringer Ingelheim)

Generic Name:

Pimobendan

What is the most important information I should know about Vetmedin?

Vetmedin is used in dogs 6 months of age or older for the management of mild, moderate, or severe congestive heart failure due to atrioventricular valvular insufficiency or dilated cardiomyopathy. Vetmedin is available by prescription as 1.25mg, 2.5mg, 5mg and 10mg scored, porcine derived beef flavored, chewable tablets. The usual dose for dogs is 0.23mg per pound divided into 2 portions to be given 12 hours apart. The portion to be given should be to the nearest 1/2 tablet increment.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Vetmedin to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has any congenital heart defects, diabetes, or other serious metabolic disease. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should Vetmedin be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian, the total daily dose should be divided into 2 portions to be given 12 hours apart. The portion to be given should be to the nearest 1/2 tablet increment. Store Vetmedin at room temperature away from moisture and light.

What are the possible side effects of Vetmedin?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Vetmedin and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, coma. Discontinue giving Vetmedin and contact your veterinarian if your pet develops; poor appetite, drowsiness, diarrhea, labored breathing, weakness, incoordination, fainting, accumulation of fluid in the lungs or abdomen, and cough. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Vetmedin?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while giving Vetmedin?
