Pimobendan is an inodilator that may be prescribed for congestive heart failure. Pimobendan Compounded Chews are flavored for your pet and are individually sealed in a UV resistant blister pack to retain freshness.
My dog was on a different heart medication and it was a very large chewable pill he did not like them and I tried every which way to get him to eat them. Then I called Chewy and worked with the pharmacist and asked questions about how close was it to the brand that I was giving my dog and they verified it with my vet to see if it would be ok to send Pimobendan for my dog. My vet verified and my dog loves them he can't wait to get his medication. He gets a chewable and a half a day. My dog is going on 16 years old so I want to try and keep him around as possible. I am thankful that Chewy worked with me to get my dog on a medication that he likes and I don't have to force him to take the pill.
Now, we all know how picky chihuahuas can be. I struggled with giving her the capsule form that was basically a human-sized pill for a month until I got the compounded chewable. So, this is a fairly hard chewable and I used to cut it three times vertically and horizontally until i got little bits, but on accident, my mom found out she will eat fourths just fine so now i just cut it once so that it's thin then cut the other way. Been using these for 2 years now!
Pet with heart murmur prescribed Pimobendan medication that must be given every 12 hours for rest of her life. Initial prescription was processed by vet's office with their affiliated pharmacy which, unknown to me, was located across the country from our location. After experiencing prolonged processing of first prescriptive order and extreme delay in delivery (more than 3 weeks), when refill recently due I turned to Chewy to process prescription and deliver this important medicine within DAYS, NOT WEEKS! Chewy also offered a newer, better alternative to the form of the medication -- that is, a chicken-flavored chewable that my pet takes without forcing a pill or liquid down her throat (nightmare when required twice a day). Thank you Chewy!
My 16 1/2 yr old Pomeranian has had congestive heart failure for 5+ yrs. This is the only med that didn't have side effects and bonus is she loves the taste so no forced or disguised needed! Combined with lasix this is working thusfar.
So glad to get this med in chewable form. Thanks chewy!
My dog knows when her pill time is and she comes to me begging for her “cookie”. I cut it into quarters and give it to her. No need to disguise a pill. It has kept her healthy.
Our Chihuahua is the pickiest ever. When we were told she had to take these for the rest of her life, I panicked. Tried these, and she begs for them every morning like a treat. We cut them in quarters with scissors and she chews them right up.
My dogs would not eat this chewable. Numerous attempts even when disguised. Chewy would not refund me after several years of ordering from them. Taking my business to PetMeds and leaving a review of Chewy on Yelp
Great product for medication delivery for your dog. Had difficulty with her taking straight Pimobendan tablets. These chew were just he right product and she gobbles them up like they are candy. Highliy recomned this product if you dog has difficulty in taking their meds.
These were great the first couple of weeks (my pup LOVED them!) they were so much better than mixing the yucky tasting powder from a capsule into her food. Within about 2 weeks of a months supply they became hard as a rock! My lil granny chihuahua that is missing half her teeth couldn’t chew them anymore and I had to cut them into slivers (which was also difficult). Wouldn’t buy again, wouldn’t recommend.
