I have been using this product for a year and for the first time I got it from this company fresh and able to pour out of the capsule into the food. Other places I have bought it I have had to take a toothpick and dig it out which is time consuming and impractical.
I started our dog, Pepper, on this medication about a year and a half ago and it seems to have delayed worsening symptoms of cardio/vascular disease. She's a black lab mix and has panting problems at night, some drueling and drinks more water than she use to. She just turned 13 and I'm not sure she would have made it without this medication. Hopefully she'll still be with us a year from now. I highly recommend this product.
Cardio Strength for Cats - capsule size
The capsule is so large -
much too large for a cat - that it needs to be opened and the content poured over food - I do not know how much of the content of the pill the cat actually ingests, as there is always some food left over.
I cannot assess the potency of this medication. However, as my cat has heart failure, after a few months I will have another US taken and see whether her heart muscle function has improved. It would be helpful to have a smaller size capsule or pill for cats.
Where is my credit??? I cannot imagine how it is that ordering a daily special near midnight and having the calendar date change during the placement generated 2 confirmation numbers. I wrote IMMEDIATELY to flag the error, and was told that immediately was too late; my account had already been charged and the order had already been shipped. WOW, that's fast. Too bad you sent the WRONG PRODUCT. The response I received to reporting it was curt and glib, yet I did as instructed -- "return to sender" unopened, the pkg went back into the mailbox. That was weeks ago. So, WHERE IS MY CREDIT????? A consumer can hardly be expected to trust a company whose attitude is cavalier and condescending and whose accounting to invoice is INSTANTANEOUS, yet lagging so far behind when it comes to issuing credit. Too bad. I had anticipated a better experience.
Product has changed
I have been buying this product for at least 5 years for my cat. recently you stopped selling the 30 day cat supply and are offering only the 90 day cat/dog version. I do not know if the formulation has changed or what but since we switched to the new packaging our cat has gotten very finiky about eating it mixed with his wet cat food. This was never a problem in the past, he could not wait for his special treat, and like I said I am talking 5 years. So did you change the formulation or is my cats pallet changing?
Essential for Pets with Heart Murmurs
by Diggy and Iya's Human

This stuff is awesome. My Chihuahua Iya has a Grade III heart murmur. After taking this, her breathing isn't labored. Please keep making this product forever, Vetri-Science!
Miracle product for my cat
from Toronto, Canada10/31/2014
My cat was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and enlarged heart so severe that vet felt euthanasia was only option. Nothing was working after a week in hospital. While he was in hospital I ordered this product together with dandelion extract and we decided not to euthanize and try him on these. 14 months later he is still going strong, in fact stronger. Subsequent check ups have indicated his heart muscles actually look like they are repairing themselves. Our vet has been very impressed. Couple of times over the last year I would notice him getting a little 'congested' and would give him an extra half pill. Other than that he is 13 and like a kitten?? And eats like a horse since being on these. It's large so i actually open capsule and form 3 little balls of the stuff and then put in his mouth with a bit of water from a syringe one at a time. Much easier! Also, apaprently better given in evening.
Seems to benefit my old lab mix
from Vancouver, Washington11/06/2012
I wanted to put my aging dog on a heart support supplement with l-carnitine in it, because she is exercise intolerant and coughing a lot. Her yearly veterinary tests are normal for blood work and chest and abdomen radiograph's. She stopped coughing so much which was my target when trying this product. She was coughing for over a year, so I am continuing it for her.
Great product & price
I've been giving my 6 year old Shiba Inu one pill every day for about 8 months. She has a weak heart and used to faint if she got scared or nervous. Since I started giving this to her, she's been doing good. I also like that it's all natural. I'll keep her on this and hope she won't have any more episode. Also, I looked around a lot before buying and entirely pets has the best price.
Great product when fresh
I have been giving this supplement to my senior dogs for years. Vetri-Science assigns a expiration date that exceeds the time the product's color, texture, and brittleness of the capsule deteriorates and if Entirely Pets ships a bottle to you that is near its expiration date then your dog might not be getting the full benefit of the supplement.
from Irvine, CA09/06/2014
We have an older dog with heart problems and our vet referred your product to us as a supplement to the usual heart medications.
Being a small (10 pound) dog he suggested half the capsule in the morning and the other half at night spread over his food.
The first bottle we received the capsules separated with no problem and the contents was a lighter color plus the two halves were easy to separate.
The second bottle we ordered the capsule contents was a darker color and the two capsule halves were not as easy to separate. In addition the contents of the two halves clumped and stuck to the ends of the capsule halves. The only way to get it out is to either squeeze the capsule or find a thin knife and pick it out as a clump.
Both bottles had a moisture absorbing pack in them.
The first bottle had no batch number on it but a 0214B next to the quality seal
The second bottle number is 22743200 0417, next to the quality seal was 0314A
With all the medication he is taking it is hard to tell if your product is helping but we can say he is still with us and doing as well as can be expected.
Thanks your customer inquiry about your product.
Verti-Science Cardio Strength
from Litchfield, Ohio02/18/2012
Holly has a strong heart murmur rated @4. I could hear her labored breathing even though she was on blood pressure meds and milk thistle until I started using cardio strength. My vet was worried about the protein content in this product being hard on her kidneys but so far blood test have been good. She will be checked again this year.
Reasonable $$, seems to be working
One of my chihuahuas developed a heart murmur rather suddenly 2 months ago. He went in for a bad bout of diarrhea and the vet was surprised to hear a rather severe grade 3-4 murmur with a whistle...dog had just been to the vet the month before for his shots and had no murmur then! X-rays revealed slightly enlarged heart and the murmur was strong. So I started him on 1/2 a capsule of this daily. It stinks, but he eats it fine. 2 months later, his murmur, though still present, is much improved, and the "whistle" is gone. I'm keeping him on this, as these are safe heart-healthy supps and nothing dangerous.
Best Cardio Support
When I adopted Kit, my female Shiba Inu at age 3, she seemed healthy but soon started having fainting spells. The vet couldn't figure out what might be wrong with her, and because the spells were few and far in between, they told me to just keep an eye on her. I did a lot of research and ended up trying this supplement. It's been 5 years since and she hasn't had a single spell. I am convinced that the supplement is helping. It is all natural, which is also the reason I give this to her daily - and she'll be on it for the rest of her life.
Having found a positive treatment for my dog's heart murmer - Cardio-S capsules containing all the necessary amino acids etc. for strengthening heart muscle, it suddenly became "unavailable" in the UK. Apparently not enough were sold to make it viable! Entirely Pets came to the rescue and sent me supplies, it took three weeks for them to come, but we now have them and Barney is back on his medication.

the best vitamins for animals with heart problem
from Russian Federation, Samara03/01/2014
We guzzle these vitamins courses: once every six months is mandatory.
Dyspnea passed (more than a year was a constant companion). Vitamins and coarse in size, so small breeds of dogs and cats is better to use other forms. My Siberian cat. These vitamins swallow normally after ingestion gave him drink water.
This medication works as well as medication from the vet for relieving our dog's cardiac symptoms. I highly recommend it. I am NOT happy with customer service for an order I did not receive from April 10th and I have NOT received a credit. When I call, they seem to dismiss my complaint.
Vetri-Science Cardio Strength (90 capsules)
from Winnipeg, MB12/16/2012
This is an EXCELLENT product for any dog who needs that extra help to strengthen the heart. My CockaPoo is 15 years old, has a heart murmer, and gets one Cardio Strength every day. He is more active and alert. He also has Geriatric Vestibular so i give him one Ginko Biloba every day as well.
Animals are innocent - they NEED our care and devotion.
I've used this product off and on for years. My dog was diagnosed with a Grade V heart murmur and after using this product for six months, her murmur was only classified as a Grade II/III. I'm not sure if the supplement reduced her murmur, but it sure seems it had something to do with it. I love Vetri-Science products!!
This product was recommended by a vet that breeds Dobermans as a good heart supplement.
My girl is a senior citizen. This product helps all her muscles.
My lil Sheltie
Is almost 16 and I have used this for the past 7 years. Her grandma passed from heartfailure. I truely believe an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.

My Caalier King Charles Spaniel has a heart murmur and this supplement has worked really well for his problem.
from Avondale, Az03/26/2012
My Chihuahua has a Grade 3 heart murmur. Her holistic vet recommended CardioStrength, and her improvement is amazing! I was buying it from the vet. Then I discovered entirelypets.com. Even after paying S&H, it's cheaper. If your dog has a murmur, do him/her a favor. Get CardiosStrength.
I love my dog like a child and take care of him to my best. These offer all of the proven heart health aids at such a low price for what you get !! the only ingredient
not in these that may be in others is hawthorn, but those other more pricey products do not have the DMG or co Q10 . This is so superior in the ingredients. Plus , it costs less.Excellent value.
I have been using for my dog for 2 years and he is in good health and his heart stays the same and despite being older he reqiures no meds !!!
Daily exercise and this product plus good nutritious dog food and lotsa love+ prayers =great health!
I won't go without it.
great for cardiac support
from Oskaloosa, KS09/05/2013
My GSD experienced medication failure/heartworm resistance and became heartworm positive. We opted for rapid kill therapy by using Doxycline and Immitecide injections. I felt she could benefit from from this supplement and plan to use it always because heartworm damages the epithelium of the heart.
Vetri science cardio care
I lost a Doberman to congestive heart failure at age 7. To help her live a better life till the end, she was on vet meds including Cardio Care. Had I known the benefits of Cardio Care sooner, she would have been on it years ago. Our 1 1/2 year old blue Doberman is now on a regular regimen of Cardio Care plus Quinol Q10 for the rest of her life.
Thank you Entirely Pets!
by Nico's HuMom12/08/2009
My 13 yr old medium sized dog was diagnosed with a serious heart condition 18 months ago. The prescription meds were keeping his heart functioning well until about 4 months ago. At that time his results were not promising and it looked like we were at the start of the end. The internist suggested Cardio Strength. We ordered the refill from Entirely Pets, excellent speedy service. At our last check up, not only was the decline halted, but Nico actually showed improved heart function. It remains to be seen if the improvement is permanent, but in the meantime he's back to chasing balls and terrorizing squirrels. Every day with him active and healthy is wonderful, and I am ordering again.
