  • According to the American Veterinary Medical Association‚ one in 10 dogs suffers from poor cardiovascular health. Although some dogs have a genetic predisposition to cardiovascular problems‚ other factors such as nutritional deficiencies and obesity can certainly contribute.

    A number of animal health products‚ including coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)‚ vitamin E‚ L-carnitine‚ taurine‚ potassium‚ and magnesium have generated positive research results in helping to maintain a healthy heart. In addition‚ various botanical substances can provide cardiac support.

    Bio-Cardio for small animals combines the unique antioxidant and cardio-protective qualities of CoQ10 with other cardio-protective ingredients and botanicals. Research on CoQ10 in animals demonstrates that it promotes the heart's oxygen utilization and helps maintain a healthy myocardium.

    Certain amino acids support good cardiac function. For example‚ supplementation with taurine to support healthy cardiac function in cats is well established‚ because unlike humans and dogs‚ cats are unable to synthesize taurine. L-carnitine promotes cellular energy production in the mitochondria and supports muscle metabolism‚ including the heart muscle. Supplementation with L-carnitine has been shown to improve appetite and exercise tolerance in dogs.

    Maintaining a healthy level of antioxidants to balance oxidative stress is essential for all tissues of the body‚ including the heart. Vitamin E provides essential antioxidant activity in fat-soluble tissues.

    Magnesium and potassium are necessary for healthy cardiac contractility and for maintaining a healthy heart rhythm; magnesium supports vascular smooth muscle tone. Deficiencies of these two minerals often occur concurrently; therefore‚ it is essential to replete both of them.

    Botanicals in Bio-Cardio include Crataegus laevigata (hawthorn extract) and Terminalia arjuna (arjuna extract)‚ both of which contribute to healthy heart muscle functioning.Eleutherococcus senticosus (eleuthero root extract)‚ an adaptogen‚ is added to support physical stamina.

    For the Heart Health of Small Pets

    On the advice of our vet weve been giving Bio-Cardio to our pomeranian who unfortunately has a heart condition. So far weve been able to keep the little old lady in good health and we believe that these pills have helped because of the various components in them that are meant to help in such circumstances.

    Pros

      Seems specific to the condition of heart health and improving problems associated with it.

    Cons

      Somewhat difficult to administer but then all medication is rather hard to give dogs.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Bio-Cardio has lessened the coughing in

    My 12 year old poodle was recently diagnosed with an enlarged heart. He had started with periodic coughing just recently. I started with the Bio-Cadio several weeks ago and he seems to be coughing less. Hopefully it will will give him added years with us. I have also noticed he has increased energy in our daily walks. He seems to be keeping up quite well with our 2 year old Maltese Bella.

    Pros

      Increased energy less coughing

    Cons

      Capsule is a little large for swallowing but I open it and sprinkle it over my Poodles food.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Cardiac Support for Dogs

    My three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels all have heart murmurs. My wholistic vet says she has had several dogs whose murmurs were completely eliminated by the use of Bio-Cardio. I dont know if it works yet but the company I ordered it from was speedy and well priced.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
