Feline Cardiac Support by Standard Process | Heart Health for Cats
One of the first natural remedies that I used for cats with heart disease was Feline Cardiac Support. I'll be honest, I wasn't so sure that it could really benefit a cat with genetic heart issues. But a client swore by it and said it had saved her cat's life a few years ago. So I started using it little by little in other minor heart disease cases.
Cat owners have reported seeing their cat more energetic, playing more, and just "feeling better". I know that nutrition is extremely important for cats with cardiac diseases and this supplement's super foods really do make a difference.
The following information is a summary and review based on Dr. Candy’s professional experience and recommendations. Any summary or statement has not been provided nor influenced by the manufacturer.
Dr. Candy And Other Holistic Veterinarians Use Feline Cardiac Support For:
- Genetic health problems
- Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM)
- Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
- Significant recovery and trauma
- Heart Murmurs
- Senior Cats
Feline Cardiac Support Supplement Benefits
- Easy administration and palatability in both dogs and cats
- Tablet for daily dosing as a treat
- Can also be crushed into a powder (Dr. Candy sometimes decides that the canine powder is easier to administer to some cats. The ingredients and supportive function in both feline and canine formulations are similar.)
- Abundant supply of whole-complex of important B-vitamins
- Strengthen heart muscle
- Maintain health of blood vessels
- Balance conditions of intravascular clotting / embolism
- Outstanding source of complete vitamins the way nature intended
- Easier to absorb natural forms of vitamins and minerals
Dr. Candy's Pro-Tip: I have observed, over the years, that cats treated with modern conventional medications and this whole-food based supplement can provide a longer life expectancy than patients only incorporating one approach.

What our patients say:
I can't urge loving pet owners enough to buy this product for their cat with heart problems. I have a 12 year old sphynx cat that has a heart murmur and mild HCM. She's on blood pressure medication (Atenalol) that makes her very tired. She used to just wake up to eat and go to the bathroom then go right back to bed and sleep for hours. For 3 months now, the only thing that's changed with her diet is the daily supplements of Feline Cardiac Support. She gets 2 a day; I crush 1 tablet in her wet food every morning and evening meal. She's like a young girl again. She no longer just sleeps; she gets up and plays and jumps up on the counter -- I welcome that since she hasn't done that since she was a young cat. I can tell she's happy and has a new outlook on life.

My little kitten had a heart murmur when he was 3 months old. I started him on Feline Cardiac Support and at his next check up the murmur was gone. I keep him on it because his breed has a HCM risk. He thinks it is a treat and gobbles it down. You might like to check about it with your vet to be sure but mine is okay with it.

My vet prescribed this for a 14 y.o. male with cardiomyopathy. I resisted because it's not a "real" pharmaceutical plus cat. Eventually As kitty lost more and more weight I came around and started gluing the crushed pill to my fingertip using a vitamin gel supplement and coating the roof of his mouth, only every other day and he gets less than half the tablet using this method. But wow what results after 10 weeks. Gained over a pound and a sleek, shiny coat with a nice fat layer beneath. Just turned 15 and I am no longer preparing for "the end" - I see no end in sight for the little guy. If you trust your vet, then listen to them if they recommend this. I'm glad I did.

My 15 year old cat who was diagnosed with some hardening of his ventricular septum. He is in stable condition. He eats this and other standard process feline supplements like a treat.

Questions & Answers
Since these nutritional supplements are made from food, there is little to no risk of side effects. The only side effect I’ve ever seen is diarrhea if the pet gets a gigantic dose. For example, if a pet eats a whole bottle. If I had a dollar for every time one of my pets ate a whole bottle, I’d have a pretty full piggy bank. Since pets love these products so much, we recommend keeping them in a cabinet or someplace that your pet cannot get to.
