Heart Tonic for dogs and cats provides the most time honored, organic herbs to strengthen and tonify the heart and related blood vessels. Formulated by a certified Master Herbalist, this formula will:
How much should I purchase?
We recommend getting enough for at least two to four weeks to start. With this remedy we are trying to provide the body with what it needs to tonify and strengthen the heart while improving circulation. This is far different than using a prescription medication because this remedy will, when possible, get real results not just a suppression of symptoms.
A one ounce bottle contains 30 ml. We recommend providing this herbal remedy at least three times per day at first until desired results are seen. This means a 25 pound dog will receive 3 ml daily, so a one ounce bottle will last for ten days. In this case we recommend you purchase at least the two ounce size. If you then decide the product is working for your dog or cat try to place your reorder so there is no interruption in your animal's treatment.
What to Look for in a Superior Heart Tonic Formula:
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or how they've been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Alcohol-Free Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals
Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

About the Organic Ingredients in this Formula
Hawthorn Berries - Considered one of nature's best and safest heart and vascular tonics backed by substantial scientific study. This herb will help to dilate blood vessels allowing blood to flow more freely relieving stress on the heart while providing bioflavonoids that offer protection against free-radical damage.
Ginkgo Leaf - Another vascular tonic that helps to inhibit platelet aggregation factor (sticky blood that clots easily) and increases blood flow in capillary-rich tissue found in the brain and extremities.
Astragalus Root - One of our favorite adaptogens that helps to increase vitality and build immune strength to assist those animals suffering with various heart ailments.
Dandelion Leaf - A gentle and safe diuretic that aids proper water elimination while maintaining appropriate potassium levels. A good choice that may allow you to avoid the use of, or lower the dosage of, diuretics that can have numerous side-effects when working in coordination with your veterinarian. If your animal continues to have water retention issues even after using this formula, in addition try providing some dandelion leaf tea daily!
Garlic - One of the oldest remedies known to us, this herb is very effective for maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels. The amount of garlic in this formula is well within levels considered safe for dogs and cats.
Motherwort Herb - A superb tonic herb for nourishing and strengthening the heart muscle and related blood vessels.
