CARDIAC SUPPORT: TURKEY + RICE

Regular price $9.75

Ingredients: USDA Ground Turkey, Sushi Rice, Barley, USDA Turkey Liver, Banana, Pear, Blueberries and Vitamins & Minerals

Summary: Our Cardiac Support diet is an innovation in heart health, developed by world-renowned double-boarded veterinary cardiologist, Dr. Robert Prošek, and by our leading board-certified veterinary nutritionist, Dr. Justin Shmalberg. The diet is designed for all types of cardiac disease and can also be fed to healthy adult dogs. It features an elevated protein content, moderate fat level, and moderate carbohydrate level. The diet is fortified with EPA and DHA, omega 3 fatty acids that may help some types of heart disease, along with supplemental antioxidants like vitamin E.  Taurine and carnitine are added to facilitate normal cardiac function at levels higher than found in any other maintenance or therapeutic diet. Sodium is controlled and electrolytes are carefully balanced to make the diet compatible with commonly-prescribed therapeutic drugs for heart failure. The diet naturally contains high levels of arginine, an important precursor to nitric oxide, and of methionine and cysteine, precursors to taurine. The unique formulation has been designed for enhanced palatability in dogs of all ages, high digestibility, and with naturally-occurring whole foods sources of polyphenols such as blueberries.

The serving portions are based on feeding an active adult dog once daily. These numbers should be used only as a guide, as every dog has their own unique metabolism and activity level. We recommend using a digital scale for increased accuracy, but you can also use the measurement provided in cups (~1 cup = 8 oz in weight). Always make sure to monitor your dog’s weight and adjust serving size as needed.
