What is Cardiovascular (Heart) Disease in Dogs and Cats?
Cardiovascular (cardiac) disease is an umbrella term for conditions in your furkid’s circulatory system (blood vessels and especially the heart). Because of this, they are also commonly known as heart diseases.
Over 10% of furkiddos have some kind of cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, the diseases progress over time if not treated in the early stages. This may eventually lead to heart failure and may even be fatal. That’s why seeking help from veterinary cardiologists is important. You should also visit a vet as soon as you notice clinical signs of heart disease in your beloved furkid.
Symptoms of Cardiovascular (Heart) Disease in Dogs and Cats
There are many types of cardiovascular disease in dogs and cats, and they all show different, particular symptoms. The symptoms may also vary in various breeds and species.
But here are some general signs you should watch out for:
- Difficulty breathing
- Coughing persistently
- Abnormal weight changes
- Fatigue and restlessness
- Swollen abdomen
- Loss of appetite
- Collapsing or fainting
Discovering, diagnosing, and treating heart disease sooner can help minimize the damage it causes to your cat or dog’s heart. So, we would like to reiterate the importance of vet consultation and full body examination upon seeing these symptoms.
Common Cardiovascular (Heart) Disease in Dogs and Cats
Let’s learn some common types of heart disease or cardiovascular disease in dogs and cats:
- Valvular disease - when heart valves don’t open or close normally, causing an enlarged heart
- Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) - when the heart muscle thickens
- Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) - when the muscle in the heart weakens
- Arrhythmias - when the heart beats irregularly
- Congenital heart disease - when furkiddos’ heart anomalies are present at birth
- Heartworm disease - when a parasite infests your little one and attacks their arteries, lungs, and heart
- Pericardial disease - when too much fluid builds up and hinders the proper pumping of blood
Sadly, most heart disease in cats and dogs are incurable. But with treatment and natural support, you can help your little one live a longer and happier life!
How NHV Remedies Support Cardiovascular Disease in Dogs and Cats
Our Cardiovascular Super Support Health Kit can support your little one while taking vet-prescribed medication.
Hearty-Heart, as the name suggests, is our primary support for cardiovascular or heart disease in cats and dogs. The extract supports furkiddos’ cardiovascular system, promotes heart health, and helps with symptoms of cardiovascular disease. The herbs in this formula are well known to help with various heart related symptoms. For example, the herb Pulsatilla helps relieve the constant coughing, restlessness, and respiratory issues that furkids with cardiac disease may experience.
Various other herbs in the supplement, like motherwort, help strengthen your little one’s heart and circulatory system. Hawthorn, in particular, is a well-known heart and vascular tonic. It is often recommended for furriends with heart disease. This herb also may strengthen cardiovascular structures and functions. All the herbs work synergistically to create a balanced formula that is safe to use long-term to support the cardiovascular system.
Another supplement added to the kit is Turmeric. Turmeric is also beneficial for cardiovascular health. The main compound in Turmeric is called curcumin. In addition to supporting the cardiovascular system, curcumin is high in antioxidant properties and may be helpful in scavenging free radicals as well as helping to reduce inflammation.
And what does inflammation have to do with cardiac health?
Inflammation is one of the risk factors for cardiovascular disorders because it may cause blood clots. Therefore, if we reduce inflammation in our furriends, it may protect them from having cardiovascular disease too. That’s why Turmeric can serve as a proactive support for heart disease in dogs and cats.

What is the most common cardiac disease in dogs?
This cardiovascular disorder happens when your furkid’s heart valves (parts of the heart that control blood flow) progressively deteriorate. It is most commonly seen in senior, small breed pups, such as Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
If left untreated, it may eventually lead to heart failure and death. So, please visit a vet for a full body examination as soon as you notice something wrong with your little one. A distinctive sign of this disease is the whooshing sound in their hearts.
How long can cats live with heart disease?
If the heart disease is detected and diagnosed early, there is a chance for their life expectancy to be extended. However, if left untreated, the condition might escalate to heart failure. Cats with heart failure generally live for six to twelve months.
