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.


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.

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.

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 ½ 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.

My dog needs a heart med that is virtually impossible to find in the lower milligram pills. Once the initial prescription arrangements were made with my vet, this pharmacy has been wonderful in somehow obtaining and sending me this drug. Terrific, efficient online pharmacy. I highly recommend

I was very worried about Entirely Pets Pharmacy, because of the negative reviews. I still took a chance, and very glad I did. I was able to get the medication for my pet, and it arrived in a timely manner. Entirely Pets Pharmacy is alright by my pet, and myself.
Merchant Response:Emmanuel, glad you took a chance. We work hard to get your order out in a timely manner.
  • Medication arrived in a timely manner, and was able to track.
  • I didn't know what website to track the package, but once I found it I tracked the package all the way to it's arrival.

great medicine
February 22, 2021
My dog has been on it for over 2 1/2 years. It has been great for him. So happy to have found it her at Entirely pets.
  • In combination with other medicines it controls well the congestive heart failure problems of my dog. My love eats it as if it was a treat. He loves its meat flavor.
  • This medication is often over priced, out of stock or on a delayed schedule... I have been fortunate to find it here at Entirely Pets but it?s a higher price than at other pharmacies. Would also like it to be sold in larger quantities so one bottle could could last a whole month. For my dog one of these bottles last only 15 days, as he takes two a day.

Cheapest price for the same exact prescription
November 21, 2020
The only place I could buy these in my city was through the vet's office who was charging $264 for 60 pills, so $132 for a 30ct. Through this site, I only paid a sale price of $74 for 30! I'm single and currently unemployed with zero income, so saving any money, let alone this much, really helps me and the pup out. I am so thankful for this online pharmacy and will continue to use this service henceforth.
  • Most affordable price for Vetmedin online or in-person
  • Fast shipping once prescription is verified
  • Easy to understand website and checkout
  • Have to mail veterinarian's pharmacy script through post office as my vet doesn't accept phone call verifications and photos are not acceptable, so a delay in getting the pills may occur if not planned at least a week in advance.
