Heart Conditions .. congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias (irregular), tachycardia (rapid), hypertrophic, aortic thromboembolism. 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. e.g 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, with homeopathic medicines as prescribed in this set.
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). Refer to: Mitral Valve Support drops (AN305) Set of 2. (Use in conjunction with Natural Heart Support drops Set). ReMyte Minerals including, 1/4 cap of Magnesium Taurate powder in every meal daily. (Cardiovascular Research Ltd is a good Brand)JUST SOME OF THE COMMON side effects of the DRUGS PRESCRIBED FOR OUR PETS - unfortunately. HEART 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).
DIURETIC 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).
* if your pet is showing any of these symptoms to help alleviate it, dilute in some fluids a pinch of Potassium Gluconate (powder from capsule) and Magnesium Taurate (powder from capsule). Oral dose 2ml 4 x daily for 3 - 5 days. Then just add a good pinch of each mineral to daily meals.

Medicinal Herbal Uses
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. Take Hawthorn only under your doctor's supervision and don't take it with other heart medications. Cardiomyopathy can be associated with congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries.
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.
The "DuraAid 22-3" drops is a natural alternative to Furosemide, but with none of the potential side effects.

e.g with Mitral Valve Weakness can cause "Mitral valve regurgitation" This is leakage of blood backward through the mitral valve each time the left ventricle contracts. Watch an animation of mitral valve regurgitation. A leaking mitral valve allows blood to flow in two directions during the contraction. Homeopathic remedy Apis Melliifca is indicated for valve regurgitation, which the DurAid 22-3 formula. Request we also provide the homeopathic Trachea 189-1 drops, if needed.

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
