Vetmedin 5 mg hard capsules
Dosage and administration
See dosing table below.
Vetmedin capsules should be administered orally (approximately one hour before feeding) at a dose of 0.2 mg to 0.6 mg pimobendan/kg body weight per day. The daily dose should be divided into two equal administrations, one half of the dose given in the morning and the other half approximately 12 hours later.
Determine the bodyweight accurately before prescribing to ensure administration of the correct dosage.
In cases of mild congestive heart failure, a daily dosage at the lower end of the dose range may be adequate. If, however, a clear response is not observable within one week, the dosage should be raised.
Vetmedin capsules may be combined with a diuretic treatment such as frusemide.
