Cardio Strength™ is designed to support heart muscles, reduce oxidative stress, and support cardiovascular functions. It also contains ingredients to support circulation and better utilization of oxygen.

Cardio Strength features 11 synergistic ingredients that are vital for maintaining normal cardiovascular function in aging cats and dogs. This formula is recommended to support animals with pre-existing, sub-optimal cardiovascular functions, breeds that are pre-disposed to cardiovascular stress or, senior pets that are showing signs of cardiovascular weakness. Each ingredient has been researched and chosen for its ability to support cardiovascular health.

L-taurine supports a regular heartbeat, minimizes the loss of potassium and allows for proper electrolyte utilization. The inclusion of potassium is necessary for maintaining electrolyte balance for normal heartbeat and blood pressure levels. DMG (N,N-Dimethylglycine) acts as an antioxidant and supports circulation and immune system health, while CoQ10 supports heart tissue oxygenation and heart muscle strength. L-carnitine supports the use of fat for energy and oxygen utilization while also supporting fat metabolism and helping the body balance triglyceride and cholesterol levels. EPA and GLA (fatty acids) support circulation and blood flow, and ingredients like vitamin E support normal clotting and healthy capillary strength, making Cardio Strength an incredibly comprehensive formula for cardiovascular health.

Recommended for:
  • Dogs and cats with pre-existing sub-optimal cardiovascular functions
  • Breeds of dogs and cats that are predisposed to cardiovascular stress
  • Support of geriatric patients

    L-Carnitine supports the use of fat for energy and oxygen utilization, It supports fat metabolism, which helps balance cholesterol and triglycerides levels, as well as supporting the heart's energy levels.

    N,N-Dimenthylglycine (DMG) supports circulation and acts as an antioxidant.

    Vitamin E supports circulation and immune system health, as well as heart muscle strength. Vitamin E helps support tissue repair, normal blood clotting, blood pressure, strengthens capillary walls, and it is a powerful antioxidant.

    Coenzyme Q10 supports oxygenation of the heart tissue and helps protect against oxidation. Coenzyme Q10 helps strengthen the heart muscle as a lipid-soluble antioxidant.

    Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA an omega 3 fatty acid) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA and omega 6 fatty acid) both support circulation and blood flow.

    Folate which is needed for the formation of red blood cells and, helps support capillary blood flow.

    Magnesium supports proper functioning of the cardiac muscle. It helps to maintain the integrity of blood vessel walls, normal blood viscosity (thickness), and a strong normal heartbeat. Magnesium helps regulate electrical activity for the heart.

    Potassium is needed for electrolyte balance, which is important for proper heart rhythm and blood pressure.

    Selenium provides antioxidant support within the heart muscle. It is a component of glutathione peroxidase and works with vitamin E to maintain a healthy heart.

    My 12 year old dog was diagnosed with enlarged heart last year. She was perscriped pimobendan and furosemide to keep her from going into heart failure. I was looking for a supplement to give her as well and found this one. I believe this supplement and her medication are keeping her symptoms at bay. She has been doing great. I highly recommend.

    Excellent supplement. Capsules are big. We break the capsules open and sprinkle over our dogs homemade food. Ours are 20, 12 and 5 lbs so we give a full capsule and split one between the ‘littles’. If you are doing a homemade diet for your dogs, these provide a great Taurine source.

    I just received this product which I bought for my cat. The pills are huge! They are human size or large dog size pills. A cat would never take these! I opened up one capsule to see if I could sprinkle it on my cat's food, but it tastes terrible! No cat would ever eat this medicine!
    I wish I knew the size of the pills before I wasted my money on this product.
    Now I can't even return it because I opened it.
    Not happy.

    Excellent product

    My Cornell Veterinary School trained veterinarian recommended this product when my 8 year old dog was diagnosed with a skipped heartbeat. He has no financial relationship with the company that makes it. On the one year follow up with the cardiologist, "Foster's" heart was fine. ( He was also given a small dose of a heart medication for this year also.) So I think this is a good product for any dog with heart issues.

    Product has changed
    January 17, 2015
    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?

    Miracle product for my cat
    October 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.

    September 23, 2014
    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!

    Vet referred
    September 6, 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.

    Best Cardio Support
    August 28, 2014
    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.

    Great product when fresh
    June 5, 2014
    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.

    Cardio Strength for Cats - capsule size
    May 19, 2014
    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.
    By Terryspack
    Awesome product
    March 28, 2014
    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.

    the best vitamins for animals with heart problem
    March 1, 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.

    great for cardiac support
    September 5, 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.

    December 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.

    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.

    Best prices, quick delivery

    This product was recommended by a vet that breeds Dobermans as a good heart supplement.

    The first time that I ordered from Entirely Pets I was a little worried about some complaints about out-of-stock items being advertised.

    I've had nothing but good luck with Entirely Pets, and will continue to use and recommend them.

    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.

    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 Even after paying S&H, it's cheaper. If your dog has a murmur, do him/her a favor. Get CardiosStrength.

    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.

    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.

    Thank you Entirely Pets!

    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!!
