NEW CC CardioCare is a breakthrough formula that transforms the role of nutrition for dogs with mitral valve disease (MVD). Mitral valve disease is the most common heart disease in dogs. It is characterised by a slowly progressive mitral valve degeneration associated with alterations in energy metabolism, oxidative stress, inflammation, and in more advanced stages, heart enlargement.
CC CardioCare slows the progression of MVD in dogs at early stages and so much more.
Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets CC CardioCare is a novel dietary approach transforming the role of nutritional management for dogs with early stage mitral valve disease.
Slows the progression of mitral valve disease in dogs at early stages
Helps reduce left atrial enlargement associated with early stage mitral valve disease
Contains a Cardiac Protection Blend composed of amino acids and fatty acids (omega-3 and medium-chain triglycerides), minerals and vitamin E.
This blend has been shown to:
- Improve mitral regurgitation in 30% of dogs with early stage MVD
- Increase serum omega-3 and decrease omega-6 fatty acid concentrations to help nutritionally manage dogs with cardiac conditions
- Increase serum arginine and citrulline, precursors of nitric oxide, to promote vasodilation.
- Improve energy use as signified by biomarkers of fatty acid oxydation
The innovative formula contains:
- High protein content to help maintain ideal body condition and lean body mass
- Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)oil as an alternative energy source for the myocytes
- Key amino acids (L-Lysine, Methionine) precursors of carnitine, a crucial transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria
- Fish oil (Omega-3 fatty acids) to help support natural anti-inflammatory processes
- Antioxidants Vitamins A and E to support a healthy immune system, including high level of Vitamin E to help reduce oxidative stress
- Magnesium which binds ATP to deliver energy to the cardiac cells
- Taurine to help maintain heart contractile function
This formula has a great taste to help ensure adequate nutrient intake.
