Supporting a Senior Pup With Heart Disease – Edsel’s Tail

Lifestyles of the Furry & Fabulous 3 min read
Senior pup with heart disease

Heart disease in older dogs is unfortunately very common. The heart is a complex organ, there are many ways its function can be affected, whether through the weakening of the muscle, changes in the valves, or stress to the entire organ. Aging changes are one of the most common reasons dogs develop heart conditions, but some can be present at birth (congenital). Other factors include body weight and breed. Just think of all the hard work it has done over the years to provide support to the whole body.

Senior dogs have different care requirements than younger dogs… So it is important to take things into account when treating heart disease.


His NHV supplements have been helping keep his heart as strong and healthy as possible.

Senior rescue pup Edsel was diagnosed with advanced heart disease and an enlarged heart about six months ago. He is doing well on his medications, and though he has slowed down he has no problem being toted around. Dogs with heart disease can’t tolerate as much exercise as they may easily become tired. Easy, leisurely walks can still be part of the daily routine to help bring down stress and maintain a healthy weight. While his walks and play times may have slowed down a bit, Edsel is still a young pup on the inside. His NHV supplements have been helping keep his heart as strong and healthy as possible.


Nowadays, Edsel is spending his golden days enjoying the love and attention of his rescue family. This independent and extraordinary pup’s tail never stops wagging. (Rescue dad Steve says Edsel doesn’t know his age or his condition!)


Spending time with the rest of the Wolfgang is lots of fun too! Proof that love comes in all ages, sizes, and breeds.


Update July 2: Here’s the latest update about little Edsel.



We love following Steve’s adventures on Instagram, dedicating his life to rehabilitating senior dogs like Edsel and Edna, nursing them back to health, and giving them more quality of life. Many have been rescued from horrific circumstances such as cruelty, neglect, and abandonment, or quite simply their owners were no longer able to look after them due to a change in the situation. Their lives have been changed forever and filled with love and happiness. We are so thankful to even be a small part of this journey and will do everything we can to support these brave warriors.

To help ease the symptoms of his condition Edsel is taking some heart support supplements. These are vet formulated, natural herbal supplements for canine heart health, heart diseases, heart conditions, and cardiovascular disorders.

NHV Hearty-Heart helps to support the heart muscle itself as well as the entire circulatory system and pulmonary system (lungs) It helps your pet maintain good energy levels and ease restlessness. For breeds like Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, who are prone to heart disease, Hearty-Heart can be used as lifelong prevention and support for the heart. It’s never too soon to start! A little prevention can go a long way to keeping your pet happy and healthy for many years.

Turmeric is full of antioxidants and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties to promote overall heart health.
