Vetmedin Chewable Tablets 1.25mg

*Please note that Vetmedin is changing. The packaging is changing from loose tablets to blister packs and the size of the tablet may differ.* 

Vetmedin Chewable Tablets 1.25mg is for the treatment of congestive heart failure originating from dilated cardiomyopathy or valvular insufficiency in dogs.

It is supplied in 1.25mg, 5mg and 10mg tablets. either individually or in packs of 50 or 100 (depending on strength). Vetmedin can also be purchased in 5mg single capsules or in packs of 100

How does Vetmedin work? Vetmedin works by opening up the blood vessels that carry the blood to and from the heart. It reduces the work your dog's heart has to do to pump the blood around their body. It also increases the strength of your dog's heart beat, improving the pumping action.

Dosage instructions: The recommended daily dose is 0.5mg pimobendan per kg bodyweight, divided into two daily doses, preferably given 12 hours apart.

. For a bodyweight of 5kg will correspond to 1x 1.25mg tablet in morning and 1x in evening

. 20kg bodyweight - 1x 5mg tablet in morning and 1x 5mg tablet in evening

. 40kg bodyweight - 1x 10mg tablet in morning and 1x 10mg tablet in evening

You should start to see an improvement within one week of your dog starting Vetmedin and the improvements should become more noticeable as the weeks go on.

Quick and convenient service


Fantastic service, great price, highly recommend petdrugsonline 🙂


Easy web site to navigate found what I wanted straight away good discription of product and excellent value


So very impressed with the speed the product was sent, the emails from your company keeping me imformed and the fact i was able to order Tillys special cat food that i couldnt by in my area. Great service and will be use again.


Its not the easyest site to use the first time when using a prescription (other pet drugs sites just as hard) but bear with it because it does gets easier after a few orders. If you get 6 months or more of prescription then you dont have to order them all at the same time which helps spread the cost. One of the tablets that I order was costing me £2.40 each from my vet. I now get a prescription from my vet for £15 for 100 tablets and I can buy them here for £1.60 each. After the cost of my vet prescription im still saving £120.00 a year. I also order another drug called Loxicon (12 100ml bottles) and am saving another £210.00 after my vets prescription charge of £15 every 6 months.


Always a great experience, next day delivery is fantastic!


Very quick and efficient purchase made and quick easy delivery service.


First class service and really quick delivery, just what you need!
