Vetmedin is a medication prescribed by your veterinarian for the treatment of congestive heart failure in dogs. When your dog suffers from heart failure, his heart is unable to pump blood adequately throughout the body. As a result, blood backs up into the lungs and fluid accumulates in the body (chest, abdomen), which further constricts both the heart and lungs, and prevents sufficient oxygen flow throughout the body. Vetmedin is a treatment for dogs with heart disease that acts in two ways: it opens up blood vessels that carry blood, to and from the heart, which reduces the work your dog’s heart has to do to pump blood around their body. And it also increases the strength and efficiency of your dog’s heartbeat, improving the pumping action. Vetmedin for dogs is available on Vetito veterinary pharmacy in 1.25 mg, 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg strength chewable tablets.
