What is compounding?
Drug compounding is often regarded as the process of combining or mixing drugs to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
The generic form of Vetmedin is Pimobendan.
Vetmedin is in limited supply. Orders placed will be shipped as product continues to come off backorder.
Dopram (Doxapram) stimulates respiration and may be used to start or stimulate respiration in newborn puppies and kittens following a difficult birth or a C-section. It may also be used during or after surgery, or to diagnose laryngeal paralysis. It is not a substitute for proper artificial respiratory support (mechanical ventilation).
Dopram hydrochloride produces respiratory stimulation mediated through the peripheral carotid chemoreceptors. As the dosage level is increased, the central respiratory centers in the medulla are stimulated with progressive stimulation of other parts of the brain and spinal chord.
Always follow the dosage and administration instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Doxapram may be given as drops under the tongue or by injection. The effect is usually seen within 2 minutes of giving the drug. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.
