Description

Canine Hearty Heart: natural heart support

Canine Hearty Heart is formulated with a special blend of herbs that have been used for centuries to promote a healthy heart:

  • Helps maintain a dog’s heart
  • Maintains dog’s youthful vitality
  • Helps guard against parasites and disease
  • Excellent for overall health
  • Gentle for long-term use

Common Symptoms of Canine Heart Disease

The symptoms are easily mistaken for other diseases, but may include those below. If you think your dog is suffering from heart disease, it’s a good idea to consult with a veterinarian.

  • Difficult, labored breathing
  • Reduced energy levels
  • Persistent coughing
  • Reduced appetite / weight
  • Swelling in abdomen
  • Discolored (blue/gray) gums
  • Partial paralysis in hind legs

You can help support a healthy heart in your dog by ensuring he gets regular exercise. Also make sure he eats well and does not become obese.
Daily use of Hearty Heart for Dogs is also highly recommended. One of our most popular products for re-orders, Hearty Heart is much loved by our customers… and their dogs!

Our customers have the last word…
"I have a 16 year old miniature Doxy with Congestive heart problems. She was taking so many drugs and she seemed to be getting worse, so I started her on Hearty Heart last October and I just want to say what a difference in the quality of her life. She is actually playing now and she doesn't pant or cough hardly at all anymore. Thank you for a great product. I just ordered my second bottle."
Marlene

"My 16 year Chihuahua has heart problems and her medications were complicating her life. I put her on Hearty Heart and she's back to being a very happy and healthy dog - it's the best decision I've ever made !! Thank you." Shona Bailey Powers

"Socrates would pant all night long. I could tell he was miserable and that made me miserable. He couldn't rest. I did research on the Internet and came across your website. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I ordered your product. After I got in the habit of putting in his food twice a day, I was and still am amazed at the results. NO MORE PANTING AT ALL! I have told numerous people about this product including my vet so she can tell her other clients about your product. I would recommend this product highly to anyone who has a pet with a heart condition. Thanks so much. Vicki Brown, Gainesville GA"

"Marchy becomes noticeably more comfortable after taking her Hearty Heart for Dog Heart Disease and Old Timer drops for Dog Arthritis. And she loves the taste. :)"

Although Hearty Heart does not smell good in the bottle, it seems to lose the odor when mixed in with food. I have experienced no problems in giving it to Chewy. She only gets one meal a day so I mix the morning dosage in with a little liquid, and add the evening dosage in with her dinner. (I prepare her food and suggest checking online for recommendations for healthy eating). She looks forward to numerous walks during the day and has returned to her happy and playful ways.

I would definitely recommend Hearty Heart to anyone who wants to take good care of their beloved dog!

I decided to take him off the prescriptions since they were no longer working, and I began administering the Hearty Heart supplement (4 drops 2x/day) about 6 months ago. I noticed vast improvement in just a couple weeks. He still had problems with the collapsed trachea, so upon doing some research, I also switched him to a 100% grain-free RAW diet given at the recommended dose (do not overfeed!). This diet was recommended for his heart condition as well as the tracheal problem. These two things combined have worked like magic. I feel like I have my old dog back! We can go on walks and play again.

In addition to these things, I have also incorporated the use of L-cartinine (250 mg 2x/day) and Taurine (125 mg 2x/day). You can pick these up at your local health food store. (He is around 6-7 lbs for dose reference.)

    I have a 5 year old Doberman who was just diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy after rushing him in for congestive heart failure. He has been put on Enalopril, Spironolactone, Lasix, Sotalol and Vetmedin..it's been 2 weeks and he is not eating since all the side effects of these meds are loss of appetite. Will your product, Hearty Heart be able to replace these meds and give him back his appetite?

    • Answer:

      Hearty Heart is an all natural product that may benefit your pet. We can not say that it will help with all symptoms including the bettering of his appetite. We suggest a consult with your Vet and remember that this product can not be used with conventional heart medications.

    Asked on 11/13/2011 by Anonymous

    • Answer:

      Hearty Heart is an herbal supplement that is effective for helping strengthen the heart by regulating the heart rate, blood flow, and blood pressure. It helps to optimize circulation to reduce discomfort for animal's with known cardiovascular conditions. It is not recommended to be used alongside with conventional heart medications or beta blockers, so I would recommend consulting with your veterinarian to see if any of the medications (including prednisone) he is on would fall under either of these categories. Hearty Heart also contains lobelia which is helpful in promoting the health of the respiratory system to allow for freer oxygenated blood flow to reduce coughing/panting.

    • Answer:

      Hearty Heart is a product in which we'd recommend if your pet has cardiovascular complications (heart failure, enlarged heart, etc) to help promote heart strength while regulating the heart rate, blood circulation, and blood pressure. It can also help to reduce panting/coughing that is related to fluid build-up within or around the lungs, but unfortunately it doesn't have the properties to remove the fluid build-up. This action is performed by the herb lobelia, which helps to relax and expand the respiratory system allowing oxygenated blood to flow more freely throughout the circulatory system. Hearty Heart is NOT recommended to be used alongside with conventional heart medications or beta blockers; therefore, it should be used as the sole treatment for cardiovascular conditions. If you are using a product such as Lasix for the fluid build-up, I'd recommend printing the list of ingredients from this supplement to consult with your veterinarian to see if the two can be used in conjunction:

    • Answer:

      If you wish to try using our Hearty Heart you would have to stop using the conventional medications that you are using for heart disease. It is all natural and safe for your pet. You may also want to look at Tripsy that may help with his kidney issues. Both products can be taken in conjunction.

  • Question:

    My 15 y/o shih tzu has congestive heart failure and kidney failure but is still moving and drinking water. i am having to put food into her in hopes her appetite comes back. There is an item listed on this site for both of these conditions...can they be taken together?

    Asked on 11/11/2011 by Marie from North Carolina

    1 answer

    • Answer:

      We actually have two seperate problems to target each issue you've mentioned. Hearty Heart is our formula for heart disease (including CHF) and Tripsy is our formula for kidney disease/failure. The two products can be taken together to help with both her heart and kidney complications; the only cautionary note for these items is that Hearty Heart should not be used in conjunction with other conventional heart medications or beta-blockers. There is a possibility her appetite may increase once she is feeling more comfortable, so these products may help by improving her wellbeing.

It also helps to relax spasms and manage palpitations that may occur as well, which would be helpful for an enlarged heart. Please note that Hearty Heart isn't recommended to be used in conjunction with conventional medications for the heart.
