Vivitonin Tablets act by improving cerebral, cardiac and skeletal muscle blood supply, particularly in older dogs. Vivitonin Tablets produce both vasodilation and a reduction in blood viscosity by inhibiting platelet aggregation and improving the flow properties of erythrocytes.
Vivitonin increases the blood and oxygen supply to the brain, without increasing the brain's glucose demand. It also has a direct effect on the heart and reduces peripheral vascular resistance, thereby lowering cardiac load, and has demonstrated an antiarrhythmic effect in dogs with myocardial ischaemia.
Vivitonin Tablets have a bronchodilator action equivalent to that of aminophylline.
Some symptoms or conditions related to impaired blood circulation where Vivitonin may be of benefit:
• Dullness, lethargy and depressed demeanour.
• Decreased willingness to exercise and exercise tolerance.
• Arryhthmia due to myocardial ischaemia.
• Conditions requiring improved circulation in the heart, brain and skeletal muscle.
