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.

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