Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill large kibbles for small dogs with loss of teeth
one way my 11 yo Havanese eats the "large" kibbles is to blend the wet H/D with the dry H/D in a low cost food processor. She loves to eat the mix this way, and doesn't choke anymore on the partly chewed kibbles. sortof like babyfood for your older dog. try it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by luvmypet need smaller bags!!
I have a 9 yr old cavalier.. he was given 1 yr to live he is in heart failure...is on 6 meds, and likes the dry food when he is really hungry,I buy the canned food because that is what he really likes, but need some dry food to have on hand. I hate to spend $60 for a huge bag. It needs to come in a 5 - 10 lb bag for smaller dogs. Why is that so difficult??

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mistysmom Great Customer Service
The customer service at Chewy went above & beyond my expectation. We were leaving town in 3 days and needed food prior to leaving. The CSR called my vet for OK as soon as I placed my order. He then sent me an e-mail to let me know her food was shipped out the next day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by suzg Very surprised
One of my chihuahuas at 7 yrs. old developed a heart murmur from a leaking heart valve. Within a year her heart went from not pumping 12% of her blood to 50%. She is on meds including diuretics & we have struggled trying to get her to lose weight. Since we started giving her heart care she has lost nearly a pound & her energy level is now that of a puppy continually playing with her stuffed toys. She is very happy & playful. We are extremely pleased with the difference this food has made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Renee This product is very hard and unflavorful.
My dog is 13 year old Lhasa Apso and has a heart murmur. He was prescribed the HD and I started him on the dry chicken 11 days ago. I know it is guaranteed, but I wanted to do what his vet ask. I have tried many different ways to get him to eat it without success. I add chicken & broth that I heat to make it softer and more flavor. He has lost weight because he will only eat a few bites and walks away. Hopefully he will decide that is his only food and start to like it better soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nica02 Need to make Cardiac in smaller portions for small dogs
My 7lbs Maltese has an enlarged heart. His vet prescribed Early Cardiac at first but quickly moved him to Cardiac. Vet said, at the stage he was in, my dogs life expectancy was about 6 months. That was 2 years ago. He's been doing just fine & you wouldn't even know he had a heart condition. The food is definitely doing its job for my dog & I couldn't be happier he loves it. My only complaint would be the size of the packaging. I wish there was the smaller packaging like they have for Early Cardiac. I prefer the dry food so I am forced to buy the huge 18lbs bag. They don't have the smaller 8lbs bag for Cardiac. Buying such a huge bag of food for my 7 lbs dog is really inconvenient. Every time I buy it, I wonder if he will live long enough to finish it. He does. However, it's not as fresh and mostly stale halfway through. That's my only complaint

by Robyn Excellent choice for cardiomyopathy
I have a 5 y.o. Neapolitan Mastiff diagnosed with left sided cardiomyopathy. I haven't been a fan of grainy foods especially with corn, however, that being said, I had no choice & the DVM prescribed this product. This formula is low sodium & high in taurine as well as other inclusions & exclusions designed specifically for heart disease. I must say after using it, his stools also cleared completely & he likes it. My only negative comment is that due to the corn & grains, he has gained weight which we have to monitor. Definitely recommend for heart disease canines.
