From Our Vets

One of the greatest drugs introduced to veterinary medicine is Vetmedin (pimobendan). Congestive heart failure is a frequently encountered disease in our veterinary patients, and this drug has proven to be the most effective product at our disposal in decades. The beauty of Vetmedin is that it is not only a vasodilator (to decrease the workload on the heart), but it also slows the heart rate and improves contractility. For advanced congestive heart failure, it has been extremely effective. I have personally seen dogs on other vasodilators, dogs that have totally decompensated, normalize just hours after Vetmedin therapy is instituted. Your veterinarian will gladly discuss this product with you if you have a dog in congestive heart failure. It really works well.
