Product description

Vetmedin is a medication that has been prescribed by your vet to treat your dog’s heart disease.

Vetmedin Capsules treats dogs with congestive heart failure (CHF) caused by two types of heart disease

  • Mitral valve disease (MVD)
  • Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)

Vetmedin capsules are also used to treat dogs with asymptomatic MVD; when given to dogs with an enlarged heart, Vetmedin delays the onset of heart failure and increases overall survival time.

Vetmedin capsules are also used to treat Dobermans with asymptomatic DCM; delaying the onset of heart failure and extending overall survival.

Vetmedin is a treatment for dogs with heart disease due to both MVD and DCM. It acts in two ways:

  • To open up the blood vessels carrying blood to and from the heart, which reduces the work your dog’s heart has to do to pump blood around their body.
  • To increase the strength and efficiency of your dog’s heartbeat, improving the pumping action. Vetmedin can relieve the symptoms of heart failure and help your dog have a more comfortable life. When used in asymptomatic MVD or DCM, it can extend the symptom free time, before the onset of heart failure and extend overall survival.
