Dogs with cardiac disease often show decreased appetite and weight loss. Due to its very high palatability and its high protein and energy concentration, Cardiac diet is adapted for the maintenance of an optimal bodyweight.
Taurine and L-carnitine are essential for myocyte function and they also help maintain heart contractility.
Sodium restriction helps reduce workload on the heart. Potassium and magnesium levels are adapted to optimum levels.
Low sodium diets help reduce fluid retention associated with cardiac disease.
Low sodium diets reduce the retention of water and sodium which are associated with cardiac disease. This significant restriction enables the veterinarian to choose a reasoned sodium supplement when required.
Pets with cardiac disease are more prone to oxidative stress. Free radicals are cytotoxic and have a negative inotropic effect. Polyphenols, thanks to their antioxidant properties, significantly minimise the deleterious effects of free radicals. Moreover, they have an antihypertensive action (Duarte 2001), by stimulating the endogenous production of nitric oxide (a local vasodilator).
