Description

Vetmedin 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.

Benefits:
  • Helps pets suffering from congestive heart disease
  • Shown to increase quality and length of life in pets
  • Increases the ability of the heart to pump blood

  • 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.

    Great service
    I'm very happy with the purchase of Vetmedin. It was delivered quickly and was less expensive than the vet was charging.

    My precious George has a heart murmur and enlarged heart. He was diagnosed with Chronic Heart Failure, June 2014 and was put on Vetmedin to dilate his heart valves and make his heart pump more efficiently. It has helped him immensely. No side effects for him from the beginning but of course regular blood work is being done to monitor kidney, liver. etc.
