Vetmedin is an FDA-Approved medication for dogs that is used to manage certain types of congestive heart failure. It differs from other commonly used heart drugs because it helps the heart pump more efficiently.

Medical Use

Vetmedin (pimobendan) is indicated for the management of the signs of mild, moderate, or severe (modified NYHA Class II, III, or IV) congestive heart failure in dogs due to atrioventricular valvular insufficiency (AVVI) or dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Vetmedin is indicated for use with concurrent therapy for congestive heart failure (e.g., furosemide, etc.) as appropriate on a case-by-case basis.

Animals Treated


Key Benefits

  • Helps dogs suffering from congestive heart disease
  • Shown to increase quality and length of life in dogs
  • Increases the ability of the heart to pump blood
  • Comes in delicious beef-flavored chewable tablets

How It Works

Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels that take blood away from the heart, effectively reducing work the heart does to pump blood. At the same time, Vetmedin opens up the blood vessels returning blood to the heart, reducing pressure on the heart.


The safety of Vetmedin has not been established in dogs with asymptomatic heart disease or in heart failure caused by etiologies other than AVVI or DCM. The safe use of Vetmedin has not been evaluated in dogs younger than 6 months of age, dogs with congenital heart defects, dogs with diabetes mellitus or other serious metabolic diseases, dogs used for breeding, or pregnant or lactating bitches.

Active Ingredient

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you.

Dosage and Administration

Vetmedin should be administered orally at a total daily dose of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) body weight, using a suitable combination of whole or half tablets. The total daily dose should be divided into 2 portions that are not necessarily equal, and the portions should be administered approximately 12 hours apart (i.e., morning and evening). The tablets are scored and the calculated dosage should be provided to the nearest half tablet increment.

Quick Tips

  • Vetmedin is a prescription medication used in dogs to increase the ability of the heart to pump blood.
  • Vetmedin is used for the management of mild, moderate, or severe congestive heart failure due to atrioventricular valvular insufficiency or dilated cardiomyopathy.

Dosage Table

Dogs over 6 months 0.23 mg / pound of body weight then divided into 2 portions to be given 12 hours apart. The portion to be given should be to the nearest ˝ tablet increment

Storage Directions

Store at 20° - 25°C (68° - 77°F), excursions permitted between 15° and 30°C (between 59° and 86°F). Keep away from moisture and light.


In a laboratory study, the palatability of Vetmedin was evaluated in 20 adult female Beagle dogs offered doses twice daily for 14 days. Ninety percent (18 of 20 dogs) voluntarily consumed more than 70% of the 28 tablets offered. Including two dogs that consumed only 4 and 7% of the tablets offered, the average voluntary consumption was 84.2%.


Vetmedin should not be given in cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, aortic stenosis, or any other clinical condition where an augmentation of cardiac output is inappropriate for functional or anatomical reasons.


Only for use in dogs with clinical evidence of heart failure. At 3 and 5 times the recommended dosage, administered over a 6-month period of time, pimobendan caused an exaggerated hemodynamic response in the normal dog heart, which was associated with cardiac pathology

Human Warnings

Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental ingestion by humans.

Possible Side Effects

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Vetmedin and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, coma.

Continue giving Vetmedin and contact your veterinarian if your dog develops; poor appetite, drowsiness, diarrhea, labored breathing, weakness, incoordination, fainting, accumulation of fluid in the lungs or abdomen, and cough. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your dog.


Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Vetmedin overdose that may occur include; loss of appetite, drowsiness, diarrhea, labored breathing, weakness, incoordination, fainting, accumulation of fluid in the lungs or abdomen, and cough.
Vetmedin is not for use in humans. Do not give this medication if your dog is allergic to it. Do not give to animals with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, aortic stenosis, or any other condition where an increase in cardiac output is not recommended. Do not give this medication to dogs less than 6 months of age. Do not give this medication to pregnant or lactating animals.
Tell your veterinarian if your dog is also being given verapamil (Isoptin, Calan, Verelan), propranolol (Inderal), theophylline (Theo-Dur), and pentoxiphylline (Trental). Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines, including vitamins and minerals.
Tell your veterinarian if your dog has any congenital heart defects, diabetes, or other serious metabolic diseases. Tell your veterinarian if your dog is pregnant or lactating.

Staff was great
August 11, 2023
First time I ordered and the staff memeber helping me over the phone was friendly and professional. I don’t know what the process is if getting a canine rx is but I was updated constantly on the process. Signed up for monthly as delivery as well. Don’t know how to rate an rx but their price was the best and my dog is still kicking

WORST company I've ever dealt with!!!!!
May 22, 2023
DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!!! They have NO customer service and are impossible to reach if you have a problem. Auto-ship deliveries will be sent ignoring any emails or phone calls you may send to try and reach their support department. I even went so far as to contact my vet and instructed them to decline the prescription request sent by Entirely Pets and they shipped my scheduled delivery anyway - without a valid authorization! STAY FAR FAR AWAY from this company!!!!!
Absolutely NONE

Great, Common Sense Customer Service
April 28, 2023
I ordered 100 pills of Vetmedin, a heart medication that is critical to my dog's ongoing health and which cannot or should not be skipped.

Entirely Pets apparently was low on stock and unable to fill the entire order. They proceeded however to promptly send me 80 pills so that I/we could have the medication ongoing. They then later sent the remainder at no additional shipping/handling cost.

Other suppliers have allowed similar orders to lapse or lag with no communication or warning. I appreciate your common sense way of handling crucial orders.
Merchant Response:Hello Pamela, We're happy to hear you had a positive experience with our staff, the pharmacy tries to make sure you have important medications as soon as possible even if that means sending a partial shipment till we get the restocked in. Sincerely, EntirelyPets Pharmacy

My dog will take this without any problems. He just chews them up. I am very satisfied. He was having issues with the capsules so it was difficult to get his medicine down him.
