Addressing Ferret Heart Issues Naturally: Kirito and Talgi’s Recovery

Lifestyles of the Furry & Fabulous 2 min read

Ferret heart or cardiac disease is one of the most common issues in these small animals. Unfortunately, Samantha had to learn about this the hard way when two of her little ones were diagnosed with heart failure. But don’t worry. We are about to turn this sad tale around!

Diagnosing Kirito and Talgi’s Heart Failure

We met Samantha in 2021 when her now angel Ferret Gnar was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Since then, we have continued to follow her other furkiddos shenanigans on Instagram and TikTok and always keep in touch. 

In late 2022, we were told one of her boys, Kirito was hospitalized with heart failure. The scare started when furmama Sam noticed his breathing faster than usual, coughing and wheezing, as well as being lethargic and with a bloated belly. With a confirmed diagnosis of dilated cardiomyopathy in hands, she reached out to us for help with two of her ferrets with similar issues.

They both have heart disease/congestive heart failure. Kirito has dilated cardiomyopathy which has turned into heart failure and Talgi has valvular disease, also turned into congestive heart failure.

Some common signs of heart disease that I have noticed in my two boys who both have congestive heart failure :/ hopefully this video helps somebody else recognize the signs before it’s too late! fferretfferretsfferretsoftiktokfferrettokfferretlifeffypfforyouppetsoftiktokrrawfedferretsrrescueferretshheartdiseasec#congestiveheartfailure

Herbs for Improved Ferret Heart Health 

Like all other pets, ferret heart failure is chronic and progressive, which means there’s no cure. But natural supplements, alongside vet-prescribed medication, can do wonders in improving comfort and quality of life. That’s where NHV Hearty-Heart comes in.

Hearty-Heart contains a unique blend of herbs that help offer life-long support to an overworked heart. The vet-formulated supplement also helps with symptoms of heart conditions like coughing and difficulty breathing, increases energy levels, and promotes healthy cardiovascular function.

These are the things Samantha noticed after adding 0.5 mL of our Hearty-Heart formulation to Kirito and Talgi’s food twice daily for a few months:

They definitely both seem to be hanging in there which is great because they told me Kirito might not even make it through the night last November. I think the most important is that they’re stable and no change is a good thing since it’s a progressive disease so I have a ton of faith that their supplements have helped a lot!! Thank you so much for all of your amazing products!!

That is such an inspiring mindset. Samantha has reminded us of the importance of celebrating the little things when your little one is dealing with a chronic condition. In these cases, slowing or stopping the progression of a severe disease like ferret heart failure is the best you can hope for.
