Natural Remedies For Cats And Dogs With Heart Murmurs

Both cats and dogs can have a heart murmur. A heart murmur is an abnormal heart sound, usually heard by listening to the heart with a stethoscope. Your veterinarian will classify the murmur by it's characteristics, including the timing (long or short) and location (where they are the loudest). Depending upon the cause and severity of the murmur, your veterinarian will determine the best course of action.

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 and fiber but low in fat and sodium. Fish oil and lean protein sources are very beneficial.
