Hawthorne Berries are both legendary and specific for heart wellness. Centuries of use in clinical practice, validated by today's scientific scrutiny, place this potent herb in top position for restoring healthy heart function.
Motherwort prevents the formation of blood clots, reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other diseases, and is good for hypertension because it relaxes blood vessels and calms nerves.
Coleus Forskohlii improves heart health, blood pressure, and increase oxygen transport. It works on muscles in the heart and in blood vessel walls producing a more powerful heartbeat and widening of blood vessels.
Ginger Root lowers cholesterol and helps prevent blood from clotting.
Which helps treat heart disease where blood vessels can become blocked and lead to heart attack or stroke.
Ginkgo biloba addresses problems related to poor blood flow by thinning the blood, reducing high cholesterol, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), blood clots, and heart disease.

Congestive heart failure (CHF), particularly in older cats and dogs, is one of the more common problems vets diagnose these days. This heart disease occurs when the animal's heart functions abnormally because of deterioration in the valves, cardiomyopathy or a disease of the heart lining.
Fluid builds up around the heart muscle making normal activity extremely tiring. Congestive heart failure can be treated with a number of medications – either conventional or herbal – plus corrections in lifestyle.
Heartworms can, on rare occasion, be a cause of congestive heart failure. Also, coronary artery disease, while rarely diagnosed in dogs, occurs only with severe hypothyroidism in dogs accompanied by extremely high serum cholesterol levels.
Symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure in Dogs
In the early stages of the condition, the dog or cat may exhibit few symptoms beyond slight fatigue after exertion. As the disease progresses, the pet may experience periodic coughing, shortness of breath, increased fatigue, poor appetite and weight loss. The disorder usually occurs in animals over the age of 8 years but may affect younger animals that have heart defects.
Conventional Medications For CHF
Veterinarians generally treat congestive heart failure in dogs with enalapril maleate, an ACE inhibitor drug that helps the heart pump more efficiently. Lasix (generic name furosemide) is a diuretic that is used to remove fluid from the body. Other medications are available to aid heart function and remove fluid buildup.
Exercise can help
Exercise can be helpful for dogs that are not exhibiting symptoms of fatigue or shortness of breath. However, when these symptoms are present, veterinarians recommend limiting exercise to prevent overworking the heart or labored breathing.
Diet low in sodium
For congestive heart failure in dogs, veterinarians recommend a low-salt diet to prevent excessive fluid buildup. Low-salt commercial dog foods such as Hill's h/d, Royal Canin EC or Purina CV are good choices for dogs with this condition. If you prepare your own homemade form of dog or cat food, avoid adding salt or seasonings that contain sodium.
Supplements for Congestive Heart Failure in Dogs
Fortunately for pets, a growing number of veterinarians now recognize the value of nutritional supplements for dogs with certain conditions. A number of supplements are recommended for canines with heart disease. If your veterinarian is among the Enlightened who understand the value of good nutrition, ask whether he or she thinks the following supplements will help your dog's condition and overall health: (If your vet's advice is unenlightened, head for your local vitamin shop.)
Taurine - This is an amino acid that supports heart health. Taurine is abundant in meat products. If you think your dog is not eating sufficient meat, consider the addition of taurine.
Arginine - Another amino acid that helps heart health, arginine can be useful for increasing exercise tolerance and reducing shortness of breath often experienced with congestive heart failure in dogs and cats.
Fish Oil - Fish oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids that support heart function. It can be used to increase appetite and reduce muscle loss from poor eating.
CoQ10 - This compound functions as an antioxidant to increase heart efficiency. Ask your veterinarian if CoQ10 would be helpful as a supplement for your dog's condition.
Younger dogs with congestive heart failure can live for years with this condition if careful treatment is administered over the years. Regular checkups are recommended to ensure that medications are working well or if dosage needs to change for increased efficiency. Depending on the amount of damage to the heart and lungs, even older dogs can live for many additional years when given proper treatment for congestive heart failure. These dogs need close monitoring by a loving care giver.
