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.

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.

Great product, poor shipping
September 9, 2022
I have no issue with your product or pricing, but die to issue at your facility my shipment did not take place on time and I was forced to purchase product locally for my pet or I would have been out for several days over a holiday weekend. This is a critical med for my pup so not acceptable, I will give you one more chance to get it right this next month!!

Been using this for my dogís heart murmur for 3 months now. Little to no side effects. Put it in some goat kefir or a little bit of food. Dog chews it up like candy.
Merchant Response:Buddy, thanks for the glowing review. We like your goat kefir idea.
Buy it online to save money. Do not pay more at the vet. Recommended for use in dogs with stage C or D heart disease. Not necessary to use in stage B2 yet.

Super super fast delivery. I ordered on a Friday and when I found out I wasnít going to possibly get them on time I called and the representative made sure they were mailed that day so I got them in time. And saved me from having to go to get them from Vet (expensive ). Very happy with customer service and their prices.
Merchant Response:Thank you Jakiie, I will be telling our customer service about your glowing review. It's not often enough that we thank them.

Making A Difference

So far it;s helped my dog stay healthier.
My 15 year old dog has a heart condition. Before she started taking this medication she would have a cough at night. At times when we would go on a walk she would pass out or else when I would let her out to going potty I would find her passed out in the yard. Thank goodness, this has not happened since sheís been on this medication. Iím keeping my fingers crossed.

March 14, 2022
Really appreciate the service and prompt attention to my orders. I have 2 toy poodles, one 14 and one 11 who are both in congestive heart failure. The 14 year old I've been medicating for almost two years. Without this med, I'm sure she would have passed a long time ago. The 11 year old is also doing well on her meds.

It helps my dog’s heart and therefore mine
February 23, 2022
My dog has been on Vetmedin for about 2 years. Her heartbeat is no longer bounding. On a routine vet visit I mentioned this to the doctor and after examining my dog, she agreed with me.
Weíre continuing with the Vetmedin and my dog is scheduled for her echocardiogram soon.
This is a prescription medication, so our experience with it reflects situation, but diet, exercise, good medical care is giving my dog and myself great relief.
Follow you veterinarian?s advice and take proper care of your dog.
