Petmedin general information

What is Petmedin used for?

Petmedin capsules 2.5mg are used to treat congestive heart failure (CHF) in dogs and are suitable for management of mild, moderate, or severe CHF.  Some dog breeds are more susceptible to CHF which is caused by dilated cardiomyopathy, when the heart muscle becomes weakened so that it does not pump efficiently and can lead enlarged heart and leaking valves; or atrioventricular valvular insufficiency, which is a mitral valve disease due to degeneration of the heart valves, causing them to become leaky.  Petmedin capsules 2.5mg can be used alone as monotherapy or in conjunction with other heart medications.  Symptoms of CHF in dogs includes reduced exercise tolerance, difficulty breathing and poor demeanour (signs of feeling unwell).  Petmedin capsules 2.5mg help improve a dog’s quality of life by reducing symptoms of CHF, which helps the dog to feel better and live longer.
