WHAT IS VETMEDIN USED TO TREAT?
Vetmedin is used to treat congestive heart failure in dogs. Vetmedin is specifically used in cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy, which causes an enlarged heart and in cases of heart valve insufficiency, meaning that the valves are leaking. Vetmedin causes the heart to pump more effectively therefore increasing oxygen delivery to the tissues. Vetmedin is often used in conjunction with other tablets such as Frusemide, which is a diuretic used to stop fluid building up in the lungs and Vasotop, a drug containing the active ingredient ramipril which can reduce blood pressure and increase cardiac output. The combination of Vetmedin and these other drugs can prolong the life of many patients with heart failure.
