I was devastated when my Basset Hound was diagnosed with DCM almost a year ago. I knew something was wrong when he would cough all night. With Vetmedin, he rarely coughs and is a happy boy. Love this product.

My coonhound was diagnosed with CHF 2 years ago. She is a 100 lb dog and just celebrated her 12th birthday. She has a great quality of life and still walks 2-3 miles a day. I think Vetmedin is terrific!

My dog was diagnosed with CHF over 3 years ago. With Vetmedin he is still around and enjoying life. A little slower but comfortable and happy.
