I have a 9 year old chi. He has a grade 3 heart murmur and his heart is mild/moderate enlarged. He is asymptotic, no coughing or panting, or any accumulated fluids. The cardiologist wants him to start pimobendan. The dosage that he prescribed is much higher than the company recommends on their website. He prescribed 1.25 tablet twice a day. According to the recommended dosage on the company chart, that is the dosage for an 11 pound dog. Rico weighs 7.4 pounds. I was just wondering if anybody gives their Chihuahua this medicine and at what dosage and how much does your dog weigh? Also, any side effects?
Thanks so much!
Thank you flippedstars for my amazing siggy!
