Vetmedin Chewables are an oral medication, for dog use only, consisting of an inodilator drug called pimobendan. We carry the brand choice of this medication in 1.35mg!

Vetmedin is prescribed by veterinarians for the treatment of congestive heart failure caused by dilated cardiomyopathy or valvular insufficiency. Additionally, it may be used to delay the time of onset of congestive heart failure or sudden death in Doberman Pinscher dogs with clinically asymptomatic dilated cardiomyopathy.

Vetmedin (pimobendan) is effective at treating congestive heart failure in dogs because it is a positive inotrope which means it is capable of increases myocardial contractility. It also works by inhibiting the function of certain substances in the dogs body which allow a decreased resistance to blood flow through systemic arterioles, which helps reduce the workload of the failing heart.

Only use this medication the way your veterinarian has prescribed it.

This medication should be given to your dog by mouth twice a day, usually given one hour before feeding time and preferably in the morning and in the evening, about 12 hours apart.

One way you can give your dog a chewable pill is by masking it under food such as chicken or peanut butter. Give your dog a treat with no pill first, and then a second, still with no medicine in it. Ensure the third treat has the hidden pill inside; most times, dogs will have no suspicion about the hidden pill or hesitation in eating it. There may be other ways you can feed your dog a pill; contact your vet if you are still unsure how to give your dog medication.

This medication is for dog use only; do not use this medication for yourself. Keep Vetmedin Chewables out of reach of children and pets. Do not use this medication in cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, aortic stenosis, or other similar conditions. Do not stop your dog’s treatment without first consulting your veterinarian. This medication should be used cautiously in dogs that have an outflow tract obstruction (such as subaortic stenosis, pulmonic stenosis, systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve, or asymmetric septal hypertrophy).

Less serious side effects of Vetmedin Chewables may include:

  • Poor appetite;
  • Lack of energy (lethargy) or weakness;
  • Diarrhea;
  • Labored breathing;
  • Incoordination; or
  • Fainting

More serious side effects of Vetmedin Chewables may include:

  • Accumulation of fluid in the lungs or abdomen; or
  • Sudden death

Are there any drug interactions associated with Vetmedin?

At this time, the only known drug that will interact with this drug is concurrent use of a beta blocker (atenolol). Mixing these together may cause a decrease in efficacy of pimobendan.

Can this medication be used in cats?

Although it is not labeled as a medication meant for cats, studies have shown that pimobendan can be a beneficial medication when used in cats. Consult your veterinarian before giving any animal a medication.

How long does it take for this medication to work?

Just like humans, every dogs healing time is different and may vary. Typically, you should begin seeing an improvement within 1 week of starting treatment and may get even more noticeable as the weeks continue.

What happens if I forget to give my dog (or cat) a dose of Vetmedin?          

If a dose is forgotten, you may give the missed dose as soon as you remember. If the next dose is less than 6 hours away, skip the miss dose. Do not give your pet an extra dose to make up for a missed one.
