    INFORMATION FOR DOSING DOGS


    VETMEDIN-CA1 (pimobendan) is indicated for the delay of onset of congestive heart failure in dogs with Stage B2 preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease (2019 ACVIM Consensus Statement1). Stage B2 preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) refers to dogs with asymptomatic MMVD that have a moderate or loud mitral murmur due to mitral regurgitation and cardiomegaly.


    Caution: Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.


    Description:VETMEDIN-CA1 (pimobendan) is supplied as oblong half-scored chewable tablets containing 1.25 or 5 mg pimobendan per tablet. Pimobendan, a benzimidazole-pyridazinone derivative, is a non-sympathomimetic, non-glycoside inotropic drug with vasodilatative properties. Pimobendan exerts a stimulatory myocardial effect by a dual mechanism of action consisting of an increase in calcium sensitivity of cardiac myofilaments and inhibition of phosphodiesterase (Type III). Pimobendan exhibits vasodilating activity by inhibiting phosphodiesterase III activity. The chemical name of pimobendan is 4,5-dihydro-6-[2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-1H-benzimidazole-5-yl]-5-methyl-3(2H)-pyridazinone. The structural formula of pimobendan is:


    Indications:VETMEDIN-CA1 (pimobendan) is indicated for the delay of onset of congestive heart failure in dogs with Stage B2 preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease (2019 ACVIM Consensus Statement1). Stage B2 preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) refers to dogs with asymptomatic MMVD that have a moderate or loud mitral murmur due to mitral regurgitation and cardiomegaly


    Dosage: VETMEDIN-CA1 should be administered orally at a total daily dose of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) body weight, using a suitable combination of whole or half tablets. The total daily dose should be divided into 2 portions that are not necessarily equal, and the portions should be administered approximately 12 hours apart (i.e., morning and evening). The tablets are scored, and the calculated dosage should be provided to the nearest half tablet increment.



    Precautions:For use only in dogs with preclinical MMVD that have a moderate or loud mitral murmur due to mitral regurgitation and cardiomegaly (Stage B2 MMVD, 2019 ACVIM Consensus Statement). A diagnosis of MMVD should be made by means of a comprehensive physical and cardiac examination which should include radiography and echocardiography. Stage B2 cardiomegaly is diagnosed based on meeting all three of the following criteria.


    Adverse Reactions: Cough was the most frequently reported adverse reaction. This clinical finding is commonly reported in cases of MMVD and the incidence was similar between treatment groups. Lethargy, inappetence, tachypnea, collapse, arrhythmia, and syncope may also be associated with the progression of MMVD and were reported in dogs receiving VETMEDIN-CA1.



    Safety:In the event of an overdose: Contact your veterinarian immediately.
