Veterinary World 2(12):482-485


A variety of nutritional deficiencies, dietary protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and trace elements are known to cause cardiac disease in various species. Nutritional management of dogs with cardiac problems can be handling with providing adequate calories, protein and modulating cytokine production to manage the possible cause of decreased appetite of the side effects of medications. Owners should be aware that dietary supplements are not regulated in the same way as drugs. They do not require proof of safety, efficacy, or quality control before they can be sold. Therefore, careful selection of type, dose, and brand is important to avoid toxicities or complete lack of efficacy.
