What Foods Are Good for a Dog's Heart?

If your dog has cardiovascular problems, they need to have the proper amounts of sodium and chloride in their systems. Besides that, there are some specific nutrients like phosphorus, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids that your dog needs in restricted quantities.

How Do You Strengthen a Dog's Heart?

Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to help strengthen heart muscles. You should also ensure that your dog is getting the right amounts of taurine, which is a trace nutrient that is needed by cats in high doses. Natural sources of taurine are organ meats. However, since cardiovascular issues are delicate, you should ensure that you speak to your veterinarian before adding or deleting anything from your dog's regular diet.

What Dog Foods Should I Avoid For Dogs With Weak Hearts?

Some grain-free dog foods have been linked to heart disease in dogs. This is why vets don't suggest grain-free diets for dogs who don't have grain or gluten intolerances. You should also avoid giving your dog very greasy food like leftovers of human food. Finally, you shouldn't overfeed your dog and maintain a nutritious diet and a regular exercise regimen. Make sure you are giving them age-appropriate dog food, i.e., changing from puppy food to adult dog food as they age. Otherwise, they could gain weight, which puts pressure on their hearts. Obesity also causes a plethora of other problems like diabetes that considerably harm your dog's quality and quantity of life.

Can You Reverse Heart Disease in Dogs?

Treatments and medicines are unlikely to reverse heart disease. However, if your dog is on a treatment plan and they are receiving high-quality cardiac dry dog food, they should be able to lead a fairly normal life. Food is an essential part of managing long-term conditions like this, so stick to high-quality dog food like Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Early Cardiac dog food if your vet has prescribed it.

Is Walking Good for Dogs With Congestive Heart Failure?

Any form of exercise puts a strain on your dog's heart. This includes walking! However, weight management and keeping fit help your dog maintain heart function. Thus, you'll have to speak to your vet about how to maintain the delicate balance between healthy amounts of exercise and overexertion. Walking also helps guard against weight gain, which can be incredibly life-threatening in a dog with congestive heart failure.

Can a Dog Live a Normal Life With a Heart Murmur?

Yes. Thankfully, modern medicine has evolved excellent treatment protocols for dogs with heart murmurs. Many dogs live normally for many years after their diagnosis. If you are diagnosed early, your vet might prescribe a specialist diet like Royal Canin Early Cardiac Dry Dog food. However, for specific information about your dog, you should speak to your veterinarian.

Does Grain-Free Food Cause Heart Problems in Dogs?

The FDA has linked heart problems in dogs to some brands of dog food. Many of these brands are "grain-free" brands, and thus vets have advised owners to stay away from grain-free options unless their dog is allergic to grains or gluten. However, this is not the only cause of heart problems in dogs. The root cause can be diet, obesity, genetics, breed, or others. Some breeds tend to have heart problems. They are Dachshunds, the smaller Poodles, Boxers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Dobermans, and mini Shnauzers.

What Are Signs of Heart Disease in Dogs?

If you are worried your dog has heart disease, you should keep an eye out for the following symptoms: difficulty breathing, excessive breathing or panting, their abdomens might swell up, they might seem weak, coughing, and a bluish tinge to their skin. In extreme cases, your dog might even faint due to a lack of blood flow to the brain. If your dog ever loses consciousness, you need to rush them to the vet immediately.

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7-day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet's digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

My picky old girl love it

Our old Yorkie Poo has cardiac disease, and doesn't like to eat most dry kibble. She loves this dry food! :We usually have to put wet food on top of dry to get her to eat, but she will eat this straight up. We have noticed that she feels better on this diet as well. Bag has a nice resealable zipper that actually works, product stays fresh, smells good and the small kibble size is perfect for a variety of sized dogs.
