Hawthorn & Dandelion
Hawthorn & Dandelion™
is a natural organic herbal remedy
demonstrated to strengthen and support the heart muscle, improve circulation
and may be used as a diuretic.
The heart is a muscular organ responsible for pumping blood through the blood vessels by repeated, rhythmic contractions. It is divided into four chambers, two on the left and two on the right.
The term "cardiac" (as in cardiology) means "related to the heart" and comes from the Greek kardia, for "heart". The heart is composed of cardiac muscle, an involuntary muscle tissue which is found only within this organ. Cardiomyopathy (cardio=heart, myo=muscle, pathy=disease).
The common heart diseases suffered by dogs and other animals, including humans, often lead to heart failure. Dogs will generally suffer what is called Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), a relatively slow worsening of symptoms as the heart struggles to compensate for whatever defect or disease is present. As the condition develops, it will affect all other organs in the body that rely on the efficient supply of nutrient rich blood.
Hawthorn & Dandelion™ has been developed to help strengthen your pet's heart. It is best used in conditions such as heartworm. Heartworm is a condition that can cause Congestive Heart Failure.
There are two common types of heart disease in canines:
Type One - the dog's heart valves lose their ability to close properly, causing abnormal blood flow.
Type Two - the muscular walls of a dog's heart become thinned and weakened.
Both will develop gradually over time resulting in the same serious condition called heart failure.
Heart failure can happen to dogs of all ages. In the young, this is typically the result of congenital abnormalities in the formation of the heart or blood vessels which surround it. In older animals, it is usually a case in which one side or chamber is weakened or overworked due to altered circulatory patterns.
Of the dogs in the United States examined annually by a veterinarian, approximately 3.2 million have some form of acquired heart disease and may be in heart failure.
Signs of heart disease in dogs
Although some of the early stages of heart failure in dogs have no visible signs, heart failure can be diagnosed through a clinical evaluation by a veterinarian.
Symptoms of dogs with mild to moderate heart failure:
- Heart enlargement
- Difficulty breathing
- Elevated blood pressure
- Pulmonary edema which causes the animal to cough as to clear the lungs
Symptoms of dogs with severe heart failure include all of the above and:
- Difficulty breathing
- Profound intolerance to exercise
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss

SUGGESTED USE WHEN TREATING MORE THAN ONE PET:
***When treating more than one pet with the same dropper, it is necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe, using a different syringe for each pet. (This method will also reduce the chances of product contamination.) Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet.
The use of a syringe containing measured drops from the dropper will also remove the risk of the animal biting the glass dropper.***
