Suggestions for a Dog With Heart Problems

Question:

What do you suggest for supplements for a dog with heart problems?  She's been diagnosed with congestive heart failure but loves life so I want to keep her alive for as long as possible.

Answer:

There are many excellent supplements for heart support. I recommend is Vetri-Science Cardio Strength.  It has multiple benefits in supporting cardiovascular function.  Here are some additional supplements you should also consider:

Further CoQ10 supplementation in addition to the 20 mg. in Cardio Strength - depending upon the size of the dog.  Typically a 50 lb. dog would need 100 mg. per day.  See

An essential fatty acid supplement, preferably fish oil such as Salmon Oil.

Additional Vitamin E supplement to a dose of 400 IU per day for a 50 lb dog.  A good quality vitamin E supplement from a local health food store is fine.

Further DMG (Dimethylglycine HCI) supplementation in addition to the 50 mg in Cardio Strength – Typically 250 mg per day for a 50 lb dog.

There are homeopathic treatments for cardiovascular problems.  Unlike a traditional western medical approach where certain medications are used to treat certain diseases, there is not one particular remedy for a particular disease in homeopathic treatment.  Homeopathic treatment for such a serious condition is a complicated process that cannot be done without a phone consultation.
