Rated 5 out of 5 by MAGfaith1 Love this product!
We have a senior dog who came to us with severe pulmonary hypertension with his heart due to a bad case of heartworms he had prior to our taking into our rescue group - which we immediately treated once adopting him. He's a basset/spaniel mix and about 40 lbs.
Because of his heart condition, he's never been a particularly active dog. He sees a cardiologist, and for the most part, does now have his condition at a healthy moderate point.
We started giving him these treats about a week ago and I don't know if it is a coincidence but his energy level is way up and he's super active. He's quite engaged and very happy. We've had him as part of our family almost four years now and he's never been this active.
I'll write an update if anything changes, but right now I'm attributing this dramatic change to this supplement, which for him, seems to be a great complement to his daily routine and is affecting him in a positive way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HealthConscious So far so good
I gave this f product five stars, but I have not used it long enough to really make an appropriate assessment.
Having said that, my nearly 17 year old Greyhound, Husky, Shepherd lab multi-mix just jumped up onto the bed within a half hour of taking this supplement. Granted I give my dogs organic food, supplemented with all of the right spices (turmeric, ginger, etc.) But, I think this Ark Naturals Gray Muzzle treat plus the kelp, nutritional yeast,etc. puts a spring in the old girl's step.
I will write an update and see how things go after a month on this product.
Since this is not the only product that I give it is hard to say what helps her. Perhaps it is a combination of factors. However, this product does have some important ingredients to bolster cardiac health, such as taurine and hawthorne berry.
I hope I can continue to rate it 5 stars, which would be a plus for me and my senior gal as well as Ark Naturals and Chewy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Wonderful treat!
My 13.5 year old shihtzu has been diagnosed with cardiac failure 3 weeks ago. Since she is on a restricted diet and refuses to eat almost everything I give her this is a wonderful treat for her. I did not see any salt in the ingredients and she loves them.

by EMP0825 Heart Murmur
I recently went to the vet and discovered that my senior dog has a heart murmur, with early stages of heart disease. One of the symptoms is that she wakes up in the middle of the night coughing due to her irregular heart rate/valve flow. The product claims to help with "heart rhythm." While I don't know if this is the product or just mere coincidence, she has now been sleeping throughout the night and has been taking it for about two weeks now. There have been no other changes to her diet. While I'm not endorsing this as being a cure to anything, there is a noticeable difference in that her symptom has ceased. I'd be curious to see if this happens with anyone else. I will definitely be purchasing this product again.

Petie seems to really like them and from the reviews I am hopeful that it will help him feel better as well. They are small enough to make him do something for the treat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jillian13 Great for dogs being treated for heartworms.
I recently inherited my father's Chocolate Lab after his passing. Unfortunately, during his illness, Sally acquired heartworms. We decided to treat her for the worms. Since it is an expensive process, we wanted to make sure we were doing everything we could to help her. These treats are super delicious. She loves them & I have no issue trying to give them to her. She is now heartworm free and has some spunk back into her 9 year old self.
