An ideal generic pimobendan alternative to Boehringer Vetmedin or Savavet Safeheart.

It provides tremendous benefit of both canine congestive heart failure(CHF), pre-clinical dilated cardiomyopathy and preclinical degenerative valve disease. The pimobendan in petmedin reduces congestion in the blood vessels, thus reducing the overall load on the heart. Pimobendan and its active metabolite has numerous beneficial effects like Inotropy – Troponin C sensitization, vasodilation – Smooth muscle ATP – sensitive K*-channel activation and cardioprotection – Mitochondrial ATP Sensitive K*-channel activation.
Its positive inotropic effect through calcium sensitization of the cardiac troponin C molecule and phosphodiesterase III inhibition imparts increased inotropy leading to improved cardiac output with greater potency. The balanced vasodilator effect provides Peripheral Vasodilation by inhibiting the function of PDE3. This results in decreased resistance to blood flow through systemic arterioles, which decreases afterload on the cardiac system.
