Imprint up to now has been P03 the latest refill imprint is P07. I need to know if this is the same drug and dosage. Could not find the info online, and it is Sunday so Vet is closed. Any idea how I can verify that this is the right prescription?
Hi Lnelson521, this is the only information I could find online relating the imprint codes to the strengths of Vetmedin. Unfortunately the descriptions aren't complete in the prescribing information.
Vetmedin 1.25 mg, 5 mg and 10 mg chewable tablets for dogs
Chewable tablet. Oval, scored, mottled brown tablets with fine white spots, embossed with Boehringer Ingelheim logo and either P01 (1.25 mg tablet), P03 (5 mg tablet) or P04 (10 mg tablet).
The P03 pill is the 5 mg strength. There does not appear to be a P07? Could the code possibly read P01? If so, then it would be the lower strength 1.25 mg tablet you have been given. Definitely worth checking with your vet.
My 1.25 Vetmedin Pimobendan tablets are imprinted with P05
I wish Vetmedin's company would explain! Did you find out more information?
