I have a 4 year old lab and she has been diagnosed with congestive heart disease. The vet has recommended Vetmedin. Does anyone know where I can buy this medicine in India?

For the treatment of congestive heart failure originating from dilated cardiomyopathy or valvular insufficiency. It is recommended that the diagnosis of congestive heart failure be confirmed by radiographs or diuretic responsiveness.
Treatment should be initiated only in symptomatic cases which will benefit from increased myocardial contractility (positive inotropy).

I'm afraid this isn't an answer, but another question - I am in desperate need of Vetmedin too for my Labrador with a serious cardiac problem. Can this drug be sourced in India at all? I had no luck with my Google search.

Thanx Rashmi, will try and get in touch with these folks. Vetmedin is a prescription drug in the West, and pharmacies there will accept only local prescriptions :(

Hi Rashmi,
Thank you ever so much for the valuable tip - I got no reply from the Gujarat address, but managed to get a bottle of Vetmedin from the vets in Bangalore.
At least this gives us some time to try and arrange a regular supply of the drug from abroad. Organising a prescription has been our biggest handicap so far.
Thanks again
Hope your lab is doing well

Thank you for your offer. I sadly lost my lost my lab to renal failure 2 years after he was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. Vetmedin was a lifesaver. I fail to understand why it isn't freely available in India.

For all you dog lovers in difficulties sourcing Vetmedin, buy the drug at
http://www.viovet.co.uk/

It worked very well for us - it was harrowing trying to find the drug in this country.

They will need a scanned copy of a recent prescription from your local vet
