Cardisure contains the drug pimobendan, widely acknowledged as the drug of choice in the treatment of congestive heart failure in dogs. Pimobendan is known as a positive inotrope, which means it increases the force of contraction of the heart muscle. It does this without increasing the consumption of oxygen and energy. (Pimobendan increases the sensitivity and binding efficiency of heart muscle to calcium ions, which are involved in the process of contraction of cardiac muscle.) The increased force of contraction means that the heart works more efficiently as a pump, circulating blood to the internal organs to provide oxygen and nutrition. An additional beneficial effect of pimobendan is that it causes blood vessels around the body to open up slightly (peripheral vasodilation). This reduces the resistance to flow of blood through them, reducing the workload on the heart. Hence the failing heart receives a double benefit from the medication. Improved quality of life with better exercise tolerance result, along with greater life expectancy.

Cardisure is supplied as a range of tablet sizes. The most economical are 10mg tablets, which are cleverly scored so that they are easily broken into four quarters. Hence doses of 2.5mg, 5mg, 7.5mg and 10mg are easily given using this one tablet size. Smaller tablets, also easily divided, are available in 1.25mg, 2.5mg and 5mg sizes. Hence accurate and economical dosing of dogs of all different sizes is possible.

Directions for use:

Cardisure should be given twice daily without food. The tablets are meat flavoured to make it easier to give as a treats. Cardisure tablets come in blister packs with a long shelf life of 30 months from date of manufacture.
