What is Vetmedin used for?

Vetmedin (Pimobendan) is used to treat canine congestive heart failure from atriventricular valvular insufficiency or dilated cardiomyopathy. It helps dilate veins and arteries to increase the heart's ability to pump blood effectively. 

Is Vetmedin safe for my dog?

Vetmedin is an inodilator and may not be appropriate for all types of heart diseases such as aortic stenosis or hypertrophic caridomyopathy where the increase of cardiac output would be unsafe. Do not use in dogs younger than 6 months old. Contact your veterinarian to know if Vetmedin is appropriate for your dog's condition. 

What should I do if I forgot to give Vetmedin to my dog?

Wait until the next scheduled dose and resume the normal daily dosing (every twelve hours).

What is canine AVVI and DCM?

 Atrioventricular Valvular Insufficiency (AVVI) and Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) are two of the most common types of heart diseases in dogs. AVVI is a slow-progressing, degenerative condition affecting heart valves. DCM sees a more rapid progression affecting the contractibility of the heart muscle. Both conditions will lead to congestive heart failures and require treatment to improve your dog's quality of life.
