* If your pet is on a Congestive Heart Failure DRUG be aware or watch out for the side effects

Vetmedin (Pimobendan) side effects

The following side effects may occur as a result of administering Vetmedin [5, 2, 4, 3]:

  • Allergic reactions including hives and labored breathing
  • Appetite loss
  • Staggering
  • Lethargy
  • Cough

Some of the more serious health effects could be a loss of consciousness, fluid build-up in the abdomen [5], seizures, and arrhythmia.

 

Subaortic Stenosis (SAS)

What is Subaortic Stenosis (SAS)?

  • A relatively common congenital (inherited) heart defect in the dog and a rare defect in the cat.
  • It is most often identified in large and giant breed dogs such as the Newfoundland, Golden Retriever, Boxer, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, English Bulldog, Great Dane, German Short-haired Pointer, and Bouvier des Flandres. It is reported in many other purebreds as well as mixed breeds of dogs.
  • It consists of abnormal tissue located just below the aortic valve that creates an obstruction the heart has to overcome to pump blood out to the body.
  • Stenosis makes the heart work harder than normal. As a result, the heart muscle can become thickened (hypertrophied). The heart murmur is created by blood being pumped at a higher speed and pressure across the stenosis into the aorta.

Symptoms of SAS may include:

  • Lethargy.
  • Weakness following exercise or excitement.
  • Fainting.
  • In some advanced cases, coughing and difficulty breathing secondary to congestive heart failure.
  • Dogs with mild SAS may have no clinical signs while moderately to severely affected dogs may be more symptomatic and are at an increased risk of sudden death secondary to arrhythmias.

Diagnosis of SAS

  • Echocardiogram with Doppler performed by a board-certified veterinary cardiologist.
    • This allows visualization of the four heart chambers and valves as well as the anatomy of the subaortic area. Doppler allows estimation of the pressure created in the heart by the obstruction/stenosis. The degree of pressure elevation correlates with SAS severity.
  • An electrocardiogram (ECG) may be required in patients with an irregular heart rhythm.
  • A new genetic test is available at the Genetics lab at the N.C State College of Veterinary Medicine Genetics lab that may help screen certain breeds with this condition www.ncstatevets.org/genetics.

How is it treated, Holistically?

  • Prophylactic antibiotics:
    • All dogs with SAS are at an increased risk for developing infections of their aortic valve (endocarditis) and should also have some sort of herbal antibiotic when they have wounds or are undergoing surgery or dental procedures.
  • Limited exercise:
    • Leashed walks and short trips to the back yard for dogs with moderate to severe Health.
    • Try to avoid vigorous burst type activity

Dilated Cardiomypathy

Most common heart condition is Enlarged Heart (Dilated Cardiomyopathy)

The incidence of DCM in dogs increases with age and usually affects dogs that are 4-10 years old.  Cause of DCM condition is believed to have several factors, including nutrition, and genetics (poor breeding quality of health and nutritionally depleted)

Nutritional deficiencies related to amino acid Taurine and Carnitine, and the mineral magnesium have been found to contribute to the formation of DCM.Evidence also suggests that some breeds have a genetic susceptibility to DCM, such as the Doberman Pinscher,  Boxer,  Newfoundland,  Scottish Deerhound,  Irish Wolfhound, Great Dane and Cocker Spaniel. In some breeds, especially the Great Dane, males appear more susceptible to DCM than females.
Reference:  https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jsap.12841

Symptoms of Dilated Cardiomyopathy in Dogs

The major symptoms of DCM include:

  • Lethargy
  • Anorexia
  • Labored breathing
  • Panting
  • Coughing
  • Abdominal distension
  • Sudden collapse

 

 

Fluid Build Up?

* Read more about this condition AN023 DuraAid formula.


How does pleural effusion (fluid build up) develop?

The pleural cavity lies between the lungs and the inner lining of the chest wall. Normally, only about a teaspoon of clear fluid is present in this space.  The pleura creates too much fluid when it’s irritated, inflamed, or infected. This fluid accumulates in the chest cavity outside the lung, causing what’s known as a pleural effusion. Certain types of cancer can cause pleural effusions, lung cancer.

Other causes of pleural effusions include:

  • congestive heart failure (the most common cause overall)
  • cirrhosis or poor liver function
  • pulmonary embolism, which is caused by a blood clot and is a blockage in the lung arteries
  • complications from open-heart surgery
  • pneumonia
  • severe kidney disease.
  • autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

 

 

 

Saddle Thrombosis

Typically, cats that are predisposed to saddle thrombus have an underlying cardiac (heart) disease that increases turbulence in the flow of blood through the heart. This increased turbulence makes these patients more prone to the formation of clots. EXAMPLE:  Hyperthyroidism and Feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy- Hyperthyroid cats are prone to a cardiac condition called “hypertrophic cardiomyopathy” (HCH).

Therefore, saddle thrombus tends to be associated with cats that have hyperthyroidism. Cats that have formed a saddle thrombus typically appear very weak back end partially or fully paralyzed, unable to move the “rear legs”  They are often vocalizing due to severe pain. When touched, the back legs are often cold and stiff, and sometimes there is panting and trouble breathing.

1.   Yes, you can prevent  “Aortic thromboembolism” from forming in cats with heart failure.
* Read more helpful information AN305

2.   Also if your cat has “Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy” which is defined by left ventricular hypertrophy w/o causative systemic or other cardiac diseases. It is the most common form of heart disease in the cat!  Mitral regurgitation may develop from distortion of the left ventricular cavity and from the systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve (SAM).

Helps blood circulation
Traditionally, rutin has long been used to aid circulation. It’s thought that rutin can help strengthen and increase flexibility in blood vessels, such as your arteries and capillaries.

Strengthened blood vessels can improve your overall health. This may help ease related conditions, including bruises, spider veins, and varicose veins. There is also evidence that rutin can aid in treating hemorrhoids (which are caused by swollen veins) and recovering from hemorrhoid removal surgery.

Prevents blood clots
Research shows that rutin can prevent the formation of blood clots in certain animals. This suggests rutin may reduce the risk of blood clots.

Preventing blood clots can help lower your chances of developing life-threatening conditions such as:

heart attacks
stroke
pulmonary embolisms
deep vein thrombosis

 

 

Arrhythmia ?

Heart rhythm problems (heart arrhythmias) occur when the electrical impulses that coordinate your heartbeats don’t work properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.  How to fix this condition called “arrhythmia” easilycorrected by using the mineral Magnesium.   * Read more helpful information AN284

Orthostatic hypotension?

also called postural hypotension — is a form of low blood pressure that happens when you stand up from sitting or lying down. Orthostatic hypotension can make you feel dizzy or lightheaded, and maybe even cause you to faint.

If a dog also has both high and low blood pressure or just low or just high.

Ventricular Septal Defect.

Symptoms and Signs of Ventricular Septal Defect.
The two lower chambers of the heart are the ventricles, and the wall between them is called the septum. A hole in the septum is called a septal defect, also referred to as a “hole in the heart.”    This abnormality usually develops before birth and is found most often in infants. It causes oxygenated blood to mix with unoxygenated blood and results in the ventricles working harder than they should, which can lead to pulmonary hypertension or congestive heart failure.

Pulmonary hypertension  (high blood pressure)

* Read more helpful information AN148,  AN284.

Studies have shown that the mineralMagnesium is great for general heart health as well as pulmonary hypertension.  The mineral helps lowers blood pressure or keeps it balanced, and is a common deficiency will offset the excessive calcium deposits as well. Magnesium will lead to reducing muscle pain as it relaxes both the muscles, but also the arterial blood flows. If these are more relaxed, then pulmonary hypertension is reduced.

Cardiac fibrosis

Cardiac fibrosis commonly refers to the excess deposition of extracellular matrix in the cardiac muscle, but the term may also refer to an abnormal thickening of the heart valves due to inappropriate proliferation of cardiac fibroblasts. Fibrotic cardiac muscle is stiffer and is seen in the progression to heart failure.

Strokes

As in people, there are two types of strokes in pets: ischemic (caused by insufficient blood supply) or hemorrhagic (caused by too much blood).
~ An ischemic stroke happens when a blood clot or other material becomes lodged in a vessel, preventing blood flow. Since the brain cells in that area are deprived of the oxygen and glucose needed to function properly, they eventually die.
~A hemorrhagic stroke, which is much less common in pets, happens when a vessel ruptures, usually because of trauma or disease. Brain cells can be damaged when excess blood within the skull compresses the cells, or from too much hemoglobin, a component of red blood cells, which can be toxic to neurons. In dogs, the most common underlying causes for ischemic strokes are Cushing’s disease (a condition associated with the adrenal glands), hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone levels), chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure. Differentiate between the symptoms of a stroke and the symptoms of other conditions. A stroke is a sudden event. You should suspect a stroke if a pet that was fine and normal 5 minutes ago, is now struggling to get up. If the dog is struggling because it’s dizzy, such as if they have heart disease, this episode may pass within a few minutes, once the dog has caught its breath be able to rise and walk around. A dog that has had a stroke, however, will remain disorientated for hours or even days.
~ Please note, this symptom also overlaps with inflammation in the balance mechanism in the inner ear. ( middle ear infection)
~ In addition, there is a sliding scale of weakness, depending on the severity of the stroke. Sometimes if it is only mild the dog can stand and walk around slowly as if drunk, other times the dog is incapacitated, lies on their side and is barely conscious.

Congestive heart failure condition, or/and Cushing’s syndrome in a dog or  Hyper-thyroid imbalances in a cat can also been seen.

 

 

Transient Ischemic Attack

The underlying cause of a TIA often is a buildup of cholesterol-containing fatty deposits called plaques (atherosclerosis) in an artery or one of its branches that supplies oxygen and nutrients to your brain. Plaques can decrease the blood flow through an artery or lead to the development of a clot.

Hawthorn Berries in the formula and we know that from a 2011 report published in “Planta Medica” states hawthorn extract is an effective treatment for mild congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and atherosclerosis. Hawthorn may also lower blood pressure. Cardiomyopathy can be associated with congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and atherosclerosis (plaque) that leads to development of a clot, or hardening of the arteries.  Along with the mineral supplement Magnesium – prevention of strokes and heart attacks.

Degenerative Valve Disease  (DVD)

Degenerative valve disease (DVD) of the valves between the atrium (upper chamber) and ventricle (lower chamber) of both the right and left sides of the heart. The valve on the left side is known as the mitral valve, whereas the valve on the right side is termed the tricuspid valve.

DVD is caused by acquired degeneration or thickening of the mitral valve and/or tricuspid valves that results in back flow, or regurgitation, across the valve (causes a “leaky” valve). This regurgitation causes the audible heart murmur that was detected.

Your pet may have been characterized by mild to  moderate or moderate to severe mitral and moderate tricuspid valve regurgitation with secondary enlargement of both the left atrium and left ventricle. DVD occurs as a result of genetic determinants rather than dietary factors or life style. It is the most common type of cardiac disease identified in small breed dogs and is typically diagnosed in adult or geriatric patients. DVD is invariably progressive, and accordingly recheck echocardiograms are recommended to monitor changes in heart size and function over time. Based on findings your Vet may suggest cardiac medication drugs. Possibly a drug called Pimobendan helps the heart to pump stronger and has been shown to delay the onset of 8-15 months.

PLAQUE BUILD UP – NARROWING OF ARTERIES

“Atherosclerosis” or  “Arteriosclerosis”  Heart  (Cardiovascular) symptoms

~ Plaque “build up” in your arteries (Atherosclerosis)
Atherosclerosis symptoms can causes plaque to clog and narrow your arteries over time.   As the innermost layer of the blood vessels (endothelium) is constricted by the deposition of fat, calcium and cellular debris. Atherosclerosis leads to the narrowing of the artery, which in turn reduces the flow of blood passing through it. The reduced blood flow results in a depletion of the amount of oxygen and nutrients reaching the affected part of the body.
*Suggest –  Magnesium 284 (mineral) to balance remove calcium (plaque) from arteries, in conjunction with AN022 Set of 3  or  if no symptoms can just use the Herbal Mix  AN073 Heart Tonic *dissolving plaque build up herbs.
or
~ Coronary artery (Arteriosclerosis)
Arteriosclerosis is a broader term for the condition in which the arteries narrow and harden, leading to poor circulation of blood throughout the body. Atherosclerosis is a specific kind of arteriosclerosis, but these terms are often used interchangeably.
*Suggest –  Magnesium 284 (mineral) to prevent plaque build up, in conjunction with HAMPL Circulation & Heart Balance 266-3 formula
.. But if patient has symptoms of breathing, fainting, lethargic etc symptoms  …  also see AN022-1 Congestive Heart Failure 22-1 formula.
* Both conditions lead to decreased blood flow to other parts of the body.

Mitral or Tricuspid – Heart Valve In- sufficiency can occur in both felines & canines.

Mitral Valve Issues

Assessing Signs and Symptoms

  1. Shortness of breath.
  2. Energy level very low.
  3. Swelling of your lower legs, ankles, and/or feet.
  4. Be aware that your pet may present with no signs or symptoms.
  5. Have your Vet listened to your dogs heart with a stethoscope.

 

MVD in CANINES

What is Mitral Valve Dysplasia? 

The back flow of blood caused by a malformed mitral valve is called mitral regurgitation or mitral insufficiency. The amount of regurgitation may be small or large depending on the severity of the abnormality of the mitral valve.  MVD is commonly seen in pure breed or crosses of German Shepherds, Great Danes, Bull Terriers, Cavaliers, Poodles, Boston Terrier, Dachshunds, and Mastiffs.

Dogs diagnosed with mitral valve dysplasia should not be bred. If your dog is having symptoms of mitral valve dysplasia, he should be seen by a veterinarian.  Mitral valve dysplasia (MVD) in dogs is the congenital malformation of the heart’s mitral valve. A normal mitral valve functions as a one-way valve, which flows blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle. Deformities in the mitral valve cause it not to shut tightly, which results in the backflow of blood into the left atrium.

Symptoms of Mitral Valve Dysplasia in Dogs
Symptoms will depend on the severity of the mitral valve dysplasia.

Patients with mild mitral valve dysplasia may not show any clinical signs for months or even years. 
Heart murmur found at a wellness check
Gagging Hacking cough
Lack of stamina
Weakness
Dyspnea
Congestive heart failure  (symptoms of…pulmonary edema, abdominal ascites, retention of fluids in the skin and collapse)

 

Mitral valve dysplasia

is a common congenital cardiac defect in cats and Mitral valve dysplasia (MVD) is the leading cause of death in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels if not able to assist with alternative remedies.   However, all breed can have an issue.

A veterinarian may (or may not) suspected heart valve symptoms, so they may do chest X-rays revealed an enlarged heart.  However, we find that when a pet has been diagnosed with an enlarged heart, often the “heart valve” is missed.

Mitral valve insufficiency, is also called endocardiosis refers to irregular conditions of the mitral valve located between the two left chambers of the heart. Working properly, it keeps blood flowing from the left atrium to the left ventricle and prevents it from flowing backward.

 

MVD in FELINES

Symptoms of Mitral Valve Dysplasia in Cat

Breathing Problems –  One of the immediate effects of mitral valve dysplasia is a marked increase of fluid in the lungs. This is caused by the pressure that the backlog of blood waiting to enter the heart can put on the surrounding tissues. It is common for cats suffering from the condition to exhibit shortness of breath and wheezing from an early age.
A habitual cough may also develop, as the animal will be frequently experiencing discomfort from excess fluid in the airway.
Unwillingness to Exercise –  Although all cats are often characterized as lazy, one of the tell-tale symptoms of heart problems is a flat-out refusal of your pet to engage in normal levels of movement and activity. This is due to the difficulties they may be having in breathing during cardiovascular exercise paired with the uncomfortable strain that it places on their malformed heart tissues.
Fainting  – Just as humans suffering from serious heart problems can be prone to blackouts, so can our pets. This is caused by the inability of the cats heart to circulate enough oxygenated blood around the body as it is needed.

 

Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is defined by left ventricular hypertrophy w/o causative systemic or other cardiac diseases. It is the most common form of heart disease in the cat!

Mitral Regurgitation may develop from distortion of the left ventricular cavity and from the systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve (SAM).  

SYMPTOMS may be seen as … exercise intolerance, coughing, trouble breathing, increased breathing rate, collapse, or weakness.

 

Degenerative Valve Disease  (DVD)

Degenerative valve disease (DVD) of the valves between the atrium (upper chamber) and ventricle (lower chamber) of both the right and left sides of the heart. The valve on the left side is known as the mitral valve, whereas the valve on the right side is termed the tricuspid valve. 

DVD is caused by acquired degeneration or thickening of the mitral valve and/or tricuspid valves that results in back flow, or regurgitation, across the valve (causes a “leaky” valve). This regurgitation causes the audible heart murmur that was detected.

Your pet may have been characterized by mild to  moderate or moderate to severe mitral and moderate tricuspid valve regurgitation with secondary enlargement of both the left atrium and left ventricle.
DVD occurs as a result of genetic determinants rather than dietary factors or life style. It is the most common type of cardiac disease identified in small breed dogs and is typically diagnosed in adult or geriatric patients.

DVD is invariably progressive, and accordingly recheck echocardiograms are recommended to monitor changes in heart size and function over time.

Mitral valve stenosis (MS)

is a narrowing of the mitral valve orifice caused by abnormalities of the mitral valve, resulting in obstruction to left ventricular inflow. This congenital abnormality is rare in dogs and cats and can occur together with other congenital defects such as subaortic stenosis, mitral valve dysplasia, and pulmonic stenosis.

AVE ( Aortic Valve Endocarditis)  and  MVE (Mitral Valve Endocartitis) caused from a bacterial Infection

  • Valve ineffective endocarditis of the aortic valve (AVE) and mitral valve (MVE) are usually studied as one entity, although the valves differ in anatomy and pressure conditions.

  • AVE is known to be associated with higher rates of invasiveness, while MVE is associated with higher rates of brain emboli.

What is bacterial endocarditis?

Infective endocarditis (IE) [also called bacterial endocarditis (BE), or depending on acuity acute or subacute or chronic bacterial endocarditis (SBE) ] occurs when germs (usually bacteria) enter the blood stream and attach to and attack the lining of the heart valves.

What does this study add?

  • In this nationwide registry study, important differences between AVE and MVE were reported.
    Staphylococcus aureuswas more common in MVE, whereas enterococci more common in AVE.
    Homeopathic nosode S. aureus and enterococci have been also added to the homeopathic formulas.

    Staphylococcus aureus and Entercocci were independent predictors of short-term mortality in MVE, whereas in AVE the causative pathogen did not predict outcome. S. aureus AVE was associated with a decrease in surgical intervention, and the short-term outcome of operated and non-operated S. aureus AVE patients was similar.

* Note:   If diagnosed with Infection of the Valve causing Aortic or Mitral – Endocarditis (infection). Vale infective endocarditis of the Aortic Valve (AVE) and Mitral Valve (MVE) then also use in conjunction with the herbal antibiotic HAMPL Infection Fighter 71 100ml as well.

 

Tachycardia?

Tachycardia is a “fast heart rate” — more than 100 beats per minute — that can either start in the heart’s lower chambers (ventricles) or upper chambers (atria). At these elevated rates, the heart is not able to efficiently pump oxygen-rich blood to the body.  Tachycardia can be ventricular (in the lower chambers of the heart) or atrial (in the upper chambers of the heart), and the treatment set we suggest would be depending on what type of tachycardia one may have.

Tachycardia can occur for several reasons. Common causes of Tachycardia include:

  • Heart-related conditions such as high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Poor blood supply to the heart muscle due to coronary artery issues (atherosclerosis), heart valve regurgitation, heart failure, heart muscle weakness – enlargement (cardiomyopathy), tumors, or infections
  • Other medical conditions such as thyroid disease, certain lung diseases, electrolyte imbalance, and alcohol or drug abuse
  • Emotional stress or drinking large amounts of alcoholic or caffeinated beverages

Symptoms

When the heart beats too fast various symptoms may be experienced. These symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Sudden weakness
  • Fluttering in the chest
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fainting

 

Warnings    Watch of for serious “Side Effects”  of HEART DRUGS

Cardsure (Vetmedin) Drug?

Common Side Effects of the VETMEDIN drug.
The most commonly reported side effects of  VETMEDIN were poor appetite, lethargy, diarrhea, dyspnea, azotemia, weakness, and ataxia.
The prevalence of side effects was similar in the active control group (enalapril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme [ACE] inhibitor).

Cardisure is a tablet that contains:
“Active ingredient”  Pimobendan * which is used in the control of heart conditions in dogs.
Cardisure is manufactured by Eurovet Animal Health Limited. Cardisure comes as round, brown tablets in several different sizes so that different sized animals can be dosed accurately.
The tablets can be scored and divided. Cardisure is a POM-V (Prescription Only Medication) which means it can only be obtained from the vet who is looking after your pet or with a prescription from them.

Pimobendan* (Vetmedin also called Cardisure) is a “commonly prescribed” as a heart medication used by veterinarians.
Pimobendan is a drug used for dogs to increase their heart’s pumping ability, which is usually given to dogs with certain kinds of heart disease. Some of these are congestive heart failure (CHF), dilated cardiomyopathy, and mitral valve insufficiency.  It is an inotrope used for congestive heart disease and heart failure in dogs. Pimobendan works by slowing the function of phosphodiesterase enzymes that open the blood vessels and makes the proteins in the heart more sensitive to calcium, which helps it to contract more effectively. It is usually given with other medications like digoxin and ACE inhibitors. Because this medication has been made to taste good to your dog, and it comes in chewable tablets, a toxic dosage of pimobendan is possible if your dog has access.

Pimobendan (Vetmedin) is a commonly prescribed heart medication used by veterinarians.
In some cases, pimobendan has been known to cause rapid heart rate, vomiting, diarrhea, nervousness, collapse, convulsions, and possibly death if not treated right away. In addition, if given to a dog without a heart condition, the effects can be life-threatening immediately. This type of drug toxicity can be mistaken for other illnesses, such as a virus, and may be overlooked until it is too late. That is why it is important to see your veterinarian right away if you even suspect that your dog has ingested pimobendan. There are two types of pimobendan poisoning, which are acute (taking a large dose causing immediate toxicosis) or chronic (taking small amounts on a regular basis, causing a gradual toxicosis).

Symptoms of Pimobendan Poisoning in Dogs

Your dog may not show any signs of toxicity right away, and some of the mild symptoms, such as stomach upset and weakness, may be overlooked as a virus or anxiety. However, if your dog has gotten into the medication, you are likely to notice that the bottle or blister pack the pills came in are on the floor or chewed on. Anytime you think your dog may have ingested a medication of any kind; it is vital that you call your veterinarian or get your dog to a pet hospital or clinic. Some of the most commonly reported symptoms are:

  • Allergic reaction (breathing difficulty, hives)
  • Collapse
  • Cough
  • Coughing
  • Dark sticky stool (melena)
  • Dehydration
  • Depression
  • Diarrhea
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Fainting (syncope)
  • Fluid accumulation in the lungs and/or abdomen (ascites)
  • Gagging
  • Heart murmur
  • Increased respiratory rate
  • Increased thirst and urination
  • Irregular pulse
  • Itchy skin (pruritus)
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of bodily movements (ataxia)

Other Drugs Often prescribed for –  Tachycardia, hypertension, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias ( which can be corrected with Magnesium), coronary artery disease, hyperthyroidism, essential tremor, aortic dissection, portal hypertension, glaucoma,  and other conditions.

 

Beta-Blockers Drug

Beta-blockers, as a class of drugs, are primarily used to treat cardiovascular diseases and other conditions. Beta-blockers are used when symptoms of –  tachycardia, hypertension, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias ( which can be corrected with Magnesium), coronary artery disease, hyperthyroidism, essential tremor, aortic dissection, portal hypertension, glaucoma,  and other conditions.

Beta Blockers – Adverse Side Effects
Beta receptors are found all over the body and induce a broad range of physiologic effects.
The blockade of these receptors with beta-blocker medications can lead to many adverse effects.
Example – Bradycardia and hypotension are two adverse effects that may commonly occur. Fatigue, Dizziness, Nausea, and Constipation are also widely reported.  Also bronchospasm presents in patients on beta-blockers. Asthmatic patients are at a higher risk.
Beta-blockers can induce hyperglycemia and mask the hemodynamic signs, usually seen in a hypoglycemic patient, such as tachycardia.  Reports of insomnia, sleep changes, and nightmares while using beta-blockers.
This effect is more pronounced with beta-blockers that cross the blood-brain barrier.
Carvedilol may increase edema in some pets.
Sotalol blocks the potassium channels in the heart and thereby induces QT prolongation. It increases the risk of torsades de pointes.

All beta-blockers, especially in pets with cardiac risk factors, carry a risk of heart block (fatal).

 

DIURETIC Drugs

Common side effects of the UREX drug.   
Symptoms of overdose may include weakness, dizziness, lethargy, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, anorexia, sweating, mental confusion, blurred vision, tingling in the arms or legs, restlessness, headache, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), cramping,   constipation, and symptoms associated with electrolyte and fluid depletion. The active ingredient in Urex is called frusemide which belongs to a group of medicines called diuretics.  Diuretics are used to help the kidneys remove excess fluid from the body. Urex is used to treat a number of medical conditions, including edema (swelling of the body due to excess fluid).

Medicinal Herbal Uses
Ginkgo Biloba Herb
Our herbal formula combines the peripheral – circulation – building benefits of ginkgo with the heart – strengthening and stabilizing properties of hawthorn into one for maximum circulatory support.
Research indicates that the herb ginkgo’s circulatory – system benefits may result from this special ability.  Randomized, double-blind clinical studies using standardized hawthorn berry extract show that hawthorn appears to increase the efficiency of nerve impulses in, and protect against oxygen deprivation of, the heart muscle.
The research team concluded that “Ginkgo biloba” is a potential therapeutic treatment for preventing atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis happens when your artery walls progressively get thicker and harder as a result of fatty deposits. High levels of bad cholesterol contribute to the disease, as do smoking and diabetes. Atherosclerosis is largely responsible for angina, heart attacks, and strokes. Get your doctor’s advice about having your cholesterol levels checked and consider taking ginkgo to keep your arteries free from harmful fatty deposits.
Also, controlled study and found that hawthorn extract can improve heart function in patients suffering from chronic heart disease. These Hawthorn patients also reported fewer overall symptoms, less fatigue and less shortness of breath.

Cayenne Herb
 (Capsicum Annuum) Capsicum is an herb, and the fruit of the capsicum plant is used to make medicine.
Capsicum increases metabolism by immediately influencing the venous structure. It is remarkable with its immediate effects on the circulatory system as it feeds the vital elements into the cell structure of capillaries, veins, arteries and helps adjust blood pressure to normal levels. Yes, cayenne pepper for high blood pressure is certainly one of its core uses, but it cleans the arteries as well.It also stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and aids in assimilation and elimination. When taken internally, it warms the body and has even been used by some herbalist doctors to help severe frostbite as cayenne not only facilitates the healing of the flesh but it helps rebuild tissue as well. Notwithstanding its hot taste, it is superb for rebuilding the tissue in the stomach for it actually facilitates rapid healing with stomach and intestinal ulcers. Capsicum for ulcers is not something most would have considered due to its native calidity but the author can testify to this aspect of this wonder herb.
Cayenne Can Stop Heart Attack

Capsaicin is a resin-like compound that is known for its thermogenic properties – which means it increases body temperature and is perhaps the greatest natural stimulant known. It does not cause jitters, palpitations, increase in blood pressure and hyperactivity that most conventional stimulants cause.
One of the most notable recognition that cayenne gained has been its ability to stop a stroke or heart attack.
Dr. Christopher testified, 
 ‘In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in–if they are still breathing–I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, and within minutes they are up and around)’.
Dr. Richard Anderson, the author of ‘Cleanse and Purify Thyself’ told that one of his friend doctor rushed to the parking lot to rescue a man who had a heart attack inside his car. The doctor administered cayenne tincture directly to the victim’s mouth and after several minutes, his heart started beating again. The capsaicin in cayenne pepper is unparalleled in its ability to reignite the heart and boost circulation. It has an exceptional ability to improve cardiovascular performance while lowering blood pressure.
Dr. Christopher told that cayenne tea, which is simply a cup of hot water added with one teaspoon cayenne powder, is one of the fastest-acting aids that you can feed the heart in case of heart attack. The warm tea works faster than capsules, tablets or cold tea because the heat opens up the cells, making them expand so cayenne can reach the heart faster.
Cayenne pepper is a popular anti-inflammatory herb. Chronic inflammation affects majority of the population because of environmental toxins, poor diet, chronic elevation of cortisol or stress hormone and other factors. The active component capsaicin present in cayenne pepper may help reduce the effect or prevent atherosclerosis or clogged arteries by regulating inflammation. Chronic inflammation triggers and pushes the development of atherosclerosis by encouraging fatty deposits in the arteries.
A 2013 study revealed that capsaicin prevents mast cells – inflammatory cells that have been found to be highly prominent in many inflammatory diseases such as asthma and allergies. Hence, taking plenty of cayenne pepper can be an effective way to reduce inflammation of the body. Also, cayenne pepper is rich in Vitamin A, which helps in reducing inflammation with its antioxidant effect. This herb is a potent antioxidant that may help reduce oxidative damaged from free radicals. Such damage is one of the top causes of inflammation.
How Chronic Inflammation Causes Atherosclerosis and Blood Clots
How exactly inflammation plays a role in stroke and heart attack remains a hot topic of ongoing research. Although it’s not proven that chronic inflammation causes heart disease, inflammation is very common in stroke and heart disease patients and is believed to be an atherogenic response.

Burdock Root herb – contains good amounts of electrolyte potassium (308 mg or 6.5% of daily required levels per 100 g root) and low in sodium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. This herb root contains small quantities of many vital vitamins. Burdock also purifies the blood. Burdock is also used for high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis), and liver disease.

Red clover herb
 – is a source of many nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin Cardiovascular – Researchers theorize that red clover might help protect against heart disease, with stronger, more flexible arteries (called arterial compliance), which can help prevent heart disease. Red clover may also have blood-thinning properties, which keeps blood clots from forming. It appears to improve blood flow.

Hawthorn Berries herb
 – has a long history of use for treating heart disease. Hawthorn can be used in cardiomyopathy to improve heart function associated with congestive heart failure and relieve angina, or chest pain. A 2011 report published in “Planta Medica” states hawthorn extract is an effective treatment for mild congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and atherosclerosis. Hawthorn may also lower blood pressure. Cardiomyopathy can be associated with congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and Atherosclerosis (plaque) that leads to development of a clot, or hardening of the arteries.

Bilberry Herbs for the Heart
It Improves Heart Functioning. The antioxidants found in bilberry extract are anti-inflammatory in nature. It helps cure diseases like varicose veins as well as the symptoms of heart disorders like burning in the chest.  Angina is a type of heart disease that will cause you to feel moderate to severe chest pain. Depending upon which type of angina a person has, this condition will develop either when they are at rest (unstable angina) or after physical exertion (stable angina). Bilberry heart extract has been shown to improve this condition because this heart herb can open up the coronary arteries and thus improve the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. This herb for the heart will also help to decrease cholesterol. As such, this is one of the most powerful herbs for the heart.
Why Bilberry Works – The reason that this heart alternative works so well is that it is rich in anthocyanins. Actually, any berries that have a deep red or purple color are rich in anthocyanins. This is what gives them their color and the deeper this color is, the higher the amount of anthocyanins that berry has in it. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to lower the risk of diseases to both the heart and the cardiovascular systems as well as lower the risk of eye disease and cancer too. Scientists are still studying this antioxidant and its potential curative properties when it comes to humans.


Coleus herb – Standardized extract of coleus containing forskolin can be used to treat cardiomyopathy. Forskolin may improve heart function in congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathy by increasing the force of the heart’s contraction, dilating coronary arteries and lowering blood pressure without increasing your heart’s need for oxygen.

Dan Shen Herb –   a Powerful Cardiovascular Chinese Herb
Dan She improves CHD markers –  In one randomized, placebo-controlled human study, Dan Shen was able to improve a number of blood markers that pertain to cardiovascular disease in a group of participants with an active coronary heart disease (CHD) diagnosis. The active group of 63 participants received 270mg of Dan Shen three times per day over a three month period, whereas an equal number of subjects in the placebo group took placebo three times per day.    At the conclusion of the study, the active group experienced reductions in the following makers: triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL, Lp(a), gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), direct bilirubin, uric acid and homocysteine. Dan Shen also increased levels of HDL, ApoA, ApoB, ApoE, total bilirubin and indirect bilirubin. The authors conclude that Dan Shen is able to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by improving markers related to CHD (12).
Myocardial infarction –   A rat study evaluated the protective effects of Dan Shen in myocardial ishemia-induced rats. After administering Dan Shen, researchers measured the size of the myocardial infarction as well as inflammatory markers and the activity of anti-oxidative enzymes. They found that Dan Shen reduced the infarction and several inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein, IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha and malondialdehyde. It also increased the activities of superoxide dismutase and serum levels of glutathione. The authors conclude that Dan Shen provides significant cardioprotective benefits against acute ischemic myocardial injury in rats and speculate that the benefits may lie in its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties (13).
Stroke prevention  – A human study evaluated the ability of Dan Shen dripping pills to protect against secondary stroke occurrence in a group of 106 participants who had suffered from ischemic stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA) within the last 20 days. The patients were divided roughly in half into active and placebo groups and monitored over the course of one year. During that time period, incidence of recurrent stroke and TIA were lower in the active group  than in placebo (9.6% vs 24.1). In addition, blood C-reactive protein levels decreased significantly in the active group participants as compared to placebo. The authors conclude that Dan Shen treatment may reduce the risk of stroke and TIA recurrence, which they attribute to the anti-inflammatory effects of the herb (14).
Mechanisms of action  – The biological actions of these substances have been elucidated over the last several years, and several mechanisms have been proposed for the cardioprotective effects of this plant, including:

  • Anti-inflammatory (5)
  • Anti-oxidation (6) (7)
  • Anti-thrombosis (8)
  • Anti-proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells
  • Inhibitory of the expression of adhesion molecules in vascular endothelium and leukocytes (9) (10)
  • Improvement of acute myocardial ishemia (11)
