Symptoms of Heart Murmurs and Congestive Heart Failure in Dogs and Cats

Symptoms of heart murmurs and congestive heart disease in dogs and cats can include:
  • Easily tiring after exercise
  • Bluish discoloration of the tongue
  • Sudden collapse
  • Difficulty breathing
  • A persistent dry cough
  • Accumulation of fluid in the lungs, leg or abdomen
Pets with heart disease need a diet rich in Omega 3s, low in fat and sodium. A high fat diet can create a lot of extra work for your pet's heart. Fish oil and lean protein sources are very beneficial.

Natural heart supplements for dogs and cats can help your pet with heart murmurs and congestive heart failure:
Amazing Omegas - highly purified fish oil delivering therapeutically high levels of Omegas without the toxins

Purrfect Pet CoQ10 - these softgels use an advanced technology that provides an efficient and natural method of nutrient delivery, offering enhanced absorption and assimilation versus ordinary capsules and tablets containing Coenzyme Q10.

Vitality NOW! - provides much needed support for heart tissue. Carnitine plays a critical role in energy production. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized to produce energy. Carnitine is concentrated in tissues such as skeletal and cardiac muscle that utilize fatty acids as a dietary fuel. Pets have greater stamina and energy when using both Purrfect Pet CoQ10 and Vitality NOW!.

Heart Terrain - a comprehensive, state of the art formula designed to provide herbs, nutrients, essential ionized co-enzymes and co-factors for building and maintaining heart function. It supports cellular micro-nutrition and enzymatic activity of the heart terrain.
