    Re: Dachshund with heart murmur?

    First off, did your vet tell you what "level" of heart murmur your dog has? Did he suggest you see a vet cardiologist? Did your vet say your dog needed to be on certain medicines for the murmur?

    My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Hazel, has a grade 1 murmur. She is not on any medicines. I make sure she eats a natural diet with great, whole ingredients. She also gets supplements. I change them up sometimes. She gets COQ10, Taurine, L-Carnitine, Hawthorne. There are two supplements I have used called Heartwise from Natures Farmacy and Healthy Heart from Nutri-vet. They have combo ingredients in them that can help heart function. I'm hoping that with a great diet, good medical care from my vet, good supplements that I can help prevent her murmur from increasing. It can't hurt, anyway Good luck!
