Heart disease is a serious health threat to both humans and pets. In fact, an estimated 7 to 8 million dogs in the United States currently suffer from some form of cardiac disease. While some dogs are born with congenital heart disease, others acquire various forms of heart disease over their lifetimes. To help protect your pet’s precious heart, there’s now an easy-to-administer supplement specifically developed to support canine cardiovascular function. VetriScience Vetri Cardio Canine Bite-Sized Chews for Dogs are specially formulated to support your dog’s heart muscle and cardiovascular system for optimal cardiac health.

What are the signs of heart disease in dogs?

In some cases, dogs may show no outward signs or symptoms when suffering from cardiovascular disease. However, some signs to look for include the following:

  • Edema (swelling) of the abdomen and/or extremities
  • Restlessness or pacing (especially at night)
  • Desire for seclusion or isolation from family members or other pets
  • Continuous coughing for more than 3 days with no signs of acute respiratory illness
  • Weakness, fainting or collapse
  • Weight loss or weight gain (abdominal swelling)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lowered exercise tolerance or refusal to take daily walks
  • Shortness of breath or labored breathing

Could my dog be at risk for heart disease?

While some dog breeds are predisposed to canine cardiovascular disease, most cases of heart disease in dogs is acquired through normal wear and tear, injury or infection.

Mitral valve disease is the most common type of heart disease in dogs and tends to affect dogs in their senior years. The mitral valve separates the left ventricle from the left atrium in the heart. In mitral valve disease, the valve does not close completely and allows blood to “regurgitate” or partially leak backward into the left atrium each time the left ventricle contracts. This causes the heart to work harder to pump blood through the body. Dog breeds that are predisposed to mitral valve disease include Cavaliers, Chihuahuas, Toy Poodles, and Dachshunds, among others.

Heartworm infection causes roughly 13% of canine heart disease. When heartworms invade your pet’s body and grow to adulthood, they clog the heart, lungs, and blood vessels surrounding both of these organs. Subsequently, blood flow in the heart and lungs can become compromised. Once heartworms establish themselves in your pet’s heart and lungs, they are extremely difficult and expensive to remove. This is why heartworm prevention is so important. Protecting your pet against heartworm infection is the best way to prevent heartworm-related cardiac disease.

Large breed dogs of all ages are particularly prone to developing myocardial disease, such as cardiomyopathy (enlarging or thickening of the heart muscle). About 8% of canine heart disease is of myocardial origin. Most breeds predisposed to cardiomyopathy are of the large or giant breed type, including Boxers, Doberman Pinschers, Great Danes, Newfoundlands, and Irish Wolfhounds. However, Cocker Spaniels also seem to be genetically predisposed to developing the disease. Dilated cardiomyopathy causes the heart muscle itself to become weak, leading to enlargement of the heart, irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias) and/or congestive heart failure.

As any form of heart disease progresses, congestive heart failure may develop. This is a serious condition whereby the heart becomes unable to properly pump blood to the rest of the body, resulting in fluid retention in the lungs and other areas of the body, including the abdomen and extremities. The functioning of other vital organs also may become inhibited, resulting in renal (kidney) failure, liver failure or pancreatitis.

Diagnosis and treatment of canine congestive heart failure

Although canine cardiovascular disease is believed to be mostly genetic in origin (with the exception of heartworm-related heart disease), there are measures pet parents can take to minimize the impact on your dog’s health.

Providing a heart-healthy diet for dogs is important for overall good health. The right balance of rest and exercise, along with select nutritional supplements can also help your dog live a longer, healthier life.

If your dog is diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, your veterinarian may prescribe heart or blood pressure medication for dogs to help regulate your pet’s cardiovascular function. In addition, studies have shown that supplementation with the amino acids L-Carnitine and L-Taurine can improve heart function and exercise tolerance in dogs diagnosed with heart disease. These two essential amino acids have cardioprotective and antioxidant properties vital for a dog’s cardiovascular health.

  1. This would be great for my Dog Buster who likes to hike with Mommy & Daddy even though he has gotten a little bit older. He still loves to exercise!

  2. Would live to try this on cocaine
    Would it be ok if they are heart worm positive

  3. My dog is 12 years old. He likes to go for walks, but I can tell he’s starting to slow down a little bit. Maybe these VetriScience Vetri Cardio Canine Bite-Sized Chews may help him to give him an extra boost.

  4. My dog gave birth to a dead puppy yesterday. She is pretty weak and she would love these treats!

  5. Cool would love to try this

  6. I have three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds. My girl, Kyoko, was nearly starved before being dumped at the high-kill shelter I adopted her from. One of my worries is that her health could eventually be compromised by the near starvation. So far, we’re okay, but she has had some health issues the vet can’t identify the cause of. Her heart and lungs are good – at least for now – but the heart is the one organ that I worry about most, since it could have been weakened by the near starvation. I’d love to start my girl on a product like this.

  7. My nine year dog is definitely slowing down. I would love to have him get a chance to try these.

  8. These would be awesome for my dog to try! He is currently in the three meds for his CHF ( fuerosemide vetmedin and benazepril ) he has a grade 5 murmur. I love to try everything I can to make him better when I can to make him live a longer life. I have had him since he was born and he is now 13 1/2. So I have a very strong bond with my Pom and would love to win these for him!

Unfortunately I lost one of the loves of my entire life to heart failure so I know all about it I have a 5 year old that is the same breed as the one I lost so these would be absolutely fabulous for him to start on at a good age. My one that passed was almost 15 and we did see a cardiologist who put him on tons of meds and he lasted another 2 years so having these would make a world of difference for my now dog who i love. Thanks

  15. i would love to try these for my sammi and riely both rescue dogs , thay love new treats..

  16. I am interested in trying these for my dog Bailey. who is 12 years old, part Rhodesian Ridgeback and has always been healthy. In the last few weeks she always seems to need to clear her throat and cough up flem and I am unsure why. Of course, she never has this problem if I take her to the vet. Hopefully these chews will be helpful in lessening her discomfort.

  28. A rat terrier mix dog that I inherited some years ago had heartworms. She was sweet, loving, and a great companion. I particularly enjoyed her company while I jogged. We became the sensation of the neighborhood when another dog and a Siamese cat joined us. In fact, the dog that joined us eventually came to our home and pawed at our door to visit our dog. So, yes, preventing heartworms is critical to extending the life of a dog, especially a great companion that my family sorely misses.
