OTHER SUPPLEMENTS

There are many nutritional supplements with claims of cardiovascular benefits. While some of these benefits may be true, these natural substances may have interaction with the medications prescribed by your veterinarian. Often these natural or herbal therapies have pharmaceutical properties that may alter the blood pressure, heart rate, fluid volume or other cardiovascular parameters so please use them with caution after consultation with CVCA and your veterinarian.
