Pharmacy Solutions Has You Covered
Pimobendan or Vetmedin® has been shown to open blood vessels to take in blood from the heart (lessening its workload) and increase the strength of heart-muscle contractions. This life-saving product’s availability has been sporadic at best and the current market lacks suitable alternatives without hospitalization. The manufacturer of this product has been trying to make it available by multiple pathways for pet owners. However, due to complexities at production site in Mexico and impacts from COVD-19, an inconsistent supply has persisted since around 2019.
In response to shortage of commercial Vetmedin®, the FDA issued a statement in May that they would not intend to object temporary importation of Vetmedin® from Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom to increase immediate availability in the United States. Anything imported will be accompanied with information sheet for pet owners explaining differences since it may be different dosage form, strength used to receiving.
Fortunately Pharmacy Solutions currently has and will continue to have plenty of powder to compound weight specific doses for your canine patients. We have noticed an influx of inquiries regarding this issue from our veterinarians and thought it prudent to notify that Pharmacy Solutions can be your reliable source of this vitally important medication for an immediate need and hopefully going forward.
