NHV Hearty Heart is a gentle yet powerful product made from a unique blend of herbs that provide support for cats with heart disease. This vet formulated natural supplement may help your feline better cope with cat heart health. The most common form of heart disease in cats is cardiomyopathy, a condition that occurs when blood flow is restricted, or when the heart becomes weak.

Watch for signs of heart disease in your cat including coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, fainting, or panting after a minimal amount of exertion. Swollen limbs or dragging of a hind leg are also symptoms that may be related to your pet’s heart function. It is always advisable to talk to your vet about any concerns you may have. Combine NHV’s Hearty Heart with proper diet and exercise to support your cat’s heart health.

My lovely 14 year old cat, Sassy, was diagnosed with congestive Heart failure New Year’s Day. I had taken her for a checkup before Christmas and the Vet not only completely missed this but said she was in fine shape to travel in February! I immediately searched the web for any product for animals that contained Hawthorne. I had used a Hawthorne product several years ago with a lovely Main Coon cat that had cardiomyopathy at age 3. The vet Cardiologist back then was open to adding this to his pharmaceutical regime and he lived 6 more miraculous years. I found NVH and placed an express order. It arrived in record time but, alas, not in time for Sassy. I have switched To a Vet practice that also has a homeopathic Vet. and will incorporate NVH Products with all my other cats as appropriate for prevention and support. So glad to have found you! I’m a Naturopathic Dr. and have often used homeopathic remedies and herbal supplements for my cats as issues have occurred, UTI’s mainly. Now I have an excellent source with NVH for superior products! 🙏 *

So far so good. Finishing our first bottle. I have a 3.5 yr old rescue sphynx. The breed unfortunately is prone to issues with HCM. With my girl being a rescue, any genetic disposition to the condition is unknown. We're having our routine scan done shortly to check and ensure no issues have developed at UTK, and the heart healthy formula is recommended by them. I will say a regular vet check earlier this year a previously low grade heart murmur was no longer detectable. It's possible this helped or she out grew it. I'll keep up with it just as preventive at least and keeping my fingers crossed for a clear scan in a few weeks. *

I have tried others brands (natural products for pets). It doesn't match with our cat. Our cat feel like he has something wrong inside of him. With NHV products I think it is the right dosage. I come back with NHV products now. I know our cat will feel better soon. Also I appreciate the helpful advice we always receive from the staff of NHV Products. *

My 15.5 yo cat is hyperthyroid and in renal failure. She is on several of your products, all of which are helping tremendously. She is also on Hearty-Heart, and she recently had her first blood pressure checkup and her blood pressure was deemed "practically perfect" according to the vet. They were very surprised, but I wasn't. Thank you! *

Junior's mom - Sunny Cali | March 27, 2017

My 13 yr old Junior was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I have him on the Hyperthyroidism kit, Tripsy and Hearty heart. I have seen positive results using all three. He's been taking in for 3 weeks now and his energy level is way better. He hasn't played in months and I now catch him playing with his brother. His coat looks SO much better. It looked quite greasy and matted all down his back. Not greasy any more. He generally looks like he FEELS better. That's what matters to me. He's not on any meds, just these products as well as flower essences and Homeopathic remedies. I know there's no cure but I want my Junior to feel 'better'. The flower essence for vomiting has REALLY helped. He used to throw up at least once a day. Now it's a couple of times a month, if that. A TRICK I've recently learned, after having to give my 17 yr old Beautiful some nasty meds at the end of her life due to kidney failure a year ago. My poor baby girl would foam at the mouth and let the meds just dribble and refused to swallow. One of the worst moments of my life. 😢 But I learned to use empty capsules (size 00) for ALL meds and/or supplements. It doesn't matter whether it a powder, liquid, tablets or chews...they all go into capsules. I wish I knew of this decades ago. I place the drops of each herbal supplement INTO the capsule(s), AT THE TIME of giving it to him 2x a day. I have a cup of water in front of me and a syringe with water held in my mouth, as I squat behind Junior. I quickly dunk the capsule filled with the herbal supplements into the water, use my left hand to cup his chin to gently elevate his head, use my ring finger on my right hand to gently pry the corner of his mouth open, with my middle finger and thumb I GENTLY place the capsule at the back of mouth and QUICKLY push back the capsule with my thumb. I keep his mouth closed with my left hand and squirt (NEVER directly into the mouth...had very bad experience once) teeny tiny amounts (equivalent to a drop or two of water at a time) towards his canine tooth (practically touching his tooth, while his mouth is closed) and the droplets of water will collect into the crease/corner of the mouth and he will naturally swallow the capsule with little to no stress. Dunking the capsule will get it very slimy and your furry baby will automatically swallow it. You may not need to squirt any water but I always give him a syringe of water with every capsule, to insure he gets enough water. I usually do about 2-3 capsules for all the herbal supplements, flower essences and homeopathic remedies, along with his Omega 3-6-9, Mush, Probiotics, Vitamins and [other pharmaceutical]. All of the above have truly made a difference. I took my Junior to the vet about 2 years ago. He just looked awful. I almost never saw him walking around the house, he was always sleeping. He was barely eating. His coat was nasty. He's not cured but definitely a different cat. Our furry babies are with us for a blink of an eye. Try their products. You'll be pleasantly surprised. No side effects, like most pharmaceuticals. *

Magali - Las Vegas | March 21, 2017

My black 14 years old cat was diagnosed with 3 grade heart murmur in 2016. I believe hearty heart is helping him not to worsen the situation and not going into heart failure. I haven't take him to vet since his last check about half year ago. He seems more energized and he doesn't sleep a lot. This is the second bottle I purchased. Thank you NHV for giving the opportunity to help my cat naturally. *

Jonny - California | April 20, 2015

This product is a godsend!!! My 12 year-old cat has a heart murmur and recently had a stroke. Hearty Heart has helped him out tremendously and he is back to the way he was when he was a much younger cat. Jonny has gotten much more energetic, playful, and frisky since using this product. Moreover, he physically looks much more youthful and his coat has become silkier. I put the liquid drops of Hearty Heart into his wet food twice daily and he readily eats it up. I will continue to use this product indefinitely! *

Lulu - North Carolina | April 16, 2015

Lulu was diagnosed with kidney disease & a grade 2 heart murmer. Thanks to his great vet who put him on a daily regimen of IV liquids, [**pharmaceutical names removed], Lulu really improved and all of his blood-work numbers returned to normal within a couple of months. 
But when we added Tripsy & Hearty Heart to his daily treatment, he really just seemed to blossom in an amazing way: his always finicky appetite vastly improved, his energy level soared, his coat actually got plush and silkier, and his beautiful eyes just seemed to light up. It's hard to describe he seems to positively glow with health and energy and happiness. Everything about him seems to say "I feel great" and we're absolutely thrilled at the effect Hearty Heart and Tripsy have had on our little guy.
Every morning & evening, we give him 5 drops of Hearty Heart and 5 drops of Tripsy along with his other meds.
I'm so glad we found this stuff. It's a wonderful product and, along with Tripsy, I highly recommend it. *

Anne P - New York | April 11, 2014

Thank goodness we found Hearty Heart again! My cat Shadow loves it. He had been on Hearty Heart for about 4 years and was not having any more seizures. We ended buying a different product when we thought this was no longer available and our cat started to have seizures again and he did not like taking the new product. We are so happy to have found Hearty Heart again. *

Andrew - California | May 16, 2013

This product is really incredible. My cat was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. When I took her for a check up the vet said what ever you are doing keep doing it because I don't hear anything, which means she could not hear the heart murmur. Pretty impressive!! *

Katherine - Maryland | May 16, 2013

What an amazing product. We thought we were going to have to spend hundreds of dollars to make our cat well and live a good life, but with Hearty Heart it gave him a whole new lease on life. In just a few days, every aspect about him changed. He doesn't sleep as much and has much more energy. He plays with our dogs like he is a kitten. Thank you so much!!! *

Smokey - Michigan | May 16, 2013

Hearty Heart did wonders for our cat Smokey. It provided us with wonderful results that we would have never seen otherwise. Although he was diagnosed with "horrible" heart disease at a young age of 5 years, when we started him on Hearty Heart, within a week, he was back to his normal self. The results were amazing. Thank you. *

Thanks so much! *
