**PRECAUTION IF YOUR DOG IS ON PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FOR THE HEART: Using this heart supplement for dogs already on common prescription medications for heart failure or heart issues is NOT RECOMMENDED without having your dog’s vet monitor your dog’s blood pressure regularly.
Pet owners would have to pay close attention to their dog’s condition. It can lower blood pressure too much if you’re not very careful and cause the dog to become lethargic. This product is best used before any type of prescription drug is ever started. With close supervision, it may be possible to lower the amounts of the prescription drugs, but you need to closely monitor this with your dog’s vet.
Instructions For Using Herbal Heart Tonic for Dogs:
Using the dropper provided with the natural Heart Tonic, give your dog or cat 1 ml for every 25# of bodyweight 2 – 3 times a day. You can administer it directly in your pet’s mouth if they’ll take it that way, add it to a small amount of canned food or add it to a small treat.
However, if at all possible, try to give the heart supplements for dogs as far away from meals as possible to increase your pet’s ability to absorb it with an empty stomach. If you are able to administer it without needing help from food, place the dropped between your pet’s lips and gums and squeeze, making sure not to tilt his or her head back due to the risk of aspiration. Rinse the dropper off well before putting it back in the bottle.
If your pet has immediate heart concerns, you may increase the dosage from one 1 ml up to 4 ml for every 25# of bodyweight 2 – 3 times a day. As your pet improves, slowly lower the dose back to the recommended 1 ml per 25# of body weight.
When starting out, it’s recommended to purchase enough for about two to four weeks worth of treatments, as it can take this long to start seeing positive effects. As each one-ounce bottle provides 30mls and your average 25# pet will use 3mls daily, a one-ounce bottle for a 25# pet will last about 10 days. It might be worthwhile to purchase the larger bottle at first to minimize the risk of missing doses while waiting for a new bottle to ship.
Don’t use it for more than 2 – 4 weeks without discussing it with your veterinarian. Monitor your pet closely during use and if any unusual symptoms occur, discontinue use immediately.
