How does Vetmedin Chewable Tablets work?

Vetmedin works through two complementary modes of action; it opens up the blood vessels taking blood to and away from the heart, which lowers the pressure on the heart and reduces the work it has to do to pump blood around your dog's body. At the same time, Vetmedin has a direct effect on the heart muscle, helping it beat stronger and pump blood more efficiently.
