Pimobendan Compound Basics

Pimobendan Compound requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Pimobendan acts as a vasodilator and a cardiac muscle stimulator. It causes the blood vessels to relax and force the heart to beat more efficiently. Therefore, this medication greatly improves the quality of life in dogs suffering from congestive heart failure (CHF) and dilated cardiomyopathy (an enlarged, weakened heart). It comes in a capsule, chewable, oral suspension, or tiny tablet.

All PetMart Pharmacy compounds are specially formulated to meet the needs of your pet. Please contact us if you need another form, strength, or flavor of this compound.

All compounds are shipped within 1 day of preparation. Compounds are shipped according to their specific temperature requirements.

Pimobendan Compound Directions

Use as directed by your veterinarian, and always follow the instructions printed on the prescription label. For best results, give 1 hour before food. Shake oral suspensions well before use. Complete the entire prescription, even if your pet seems to be improving, unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Store at room temperature, protected from light and moisture.
