Pimobendan is used to manage mild, moderate, or severe congestive heart failure in dogs caused by atrioventricular valvular insufficiency or dilated cardiomyopathy. It differs from other commonly used heart drugs because it helps the heart pump more efficiently. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. It comes in tasty beef flavor. Pimobendan requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
