Vetmedin 10mg Flavoured Tablets for Dogs are used to treat dogs suffering from canine congestive heart failure caused by an enlarged heart or mitral and/or tricuspid valve insufficiency. Vetmedin 10mg tablets help to stimulate the heart muscle and can help to reduce the progression of damage to the heart.

The brown Vetmedin 10mg tablets contain 10mg of the active ingredient Pimobendan and are scored to help you split the Vetmedin tablets should the dosage require it.

Each Vetmedin 10mg tablet is meat flavoured to help enhance the palatability of the medication and to aid administration as it usually needs to be given on an empty stomach

When used in cases of valvular insufficiency in conjunction with Frusemide (also available as Frusedale & Frusecare), the product has been shown to improve the quality of life and extend life expectancy in treated dogs. Vetmedin is often also used in conjunction with other medications, such as Fortekor, Digoxin and Prilactone.

Vetmedin is also available as a 5mg capsule or 1.25mg and 5mg chewable tablets to accommodate different sizes and breeds of dog.

Non-Prescription supplements can also be beneficial to animals with cardiovascular health and inflammatory disease. Products such as Gomega Liquid are often recommended.
