Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Early Cardiac Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Dog! This food is a smaller kibble than Science diet h/d which is nice for my Maltese who has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. It does list sodium as last ingredient which I found surprising, but seems to be helping. And my pet likes it. I will continue to purchase this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOGS LOVE THE TASTE We have 5 dogs all are mini-schnauzers and this breed is prone to heart disease. Since discovering that one dog in particular was suffering from heart disease and now has to be on medication for the remainder of her life, we decided to switch to a food very low in sodium that would be a benefit to all of our dogs. Royal Canin is very familiar to us and we have been purchasing the SO dry food for our dog with bladder stones. Again, the dogs are attracted to the smell of the food and love the taste as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived quickly! When the other local place I ordered from took this dog food off their "menu" I had to quickly find another place to order from. I thought it would take forever as it was over the holiday and of course you have to note who your dog's doctor is and their phone number, etc. but the food arrived quickly and well boxed and we didn't miss a day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog LOVES it! My dog recently became a cardiac patient, and a study of various cardiac diet dog foods led me to Royal Canin's Early Cardiac dry dog food. It is a low sodium high nutrition food that my dog enthusiastically eats every morsel of! Service was fast and efficient from, and they beat other sites' prices! Thanks,!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Pre Cardiac dog food. Needed a food with low sodium content and this is it. When my dog was diagnosed with cardiac failure I was advised to get food with low sodium content. After researching, Royal Canin Pre Cardiac was perfect. My dog loves it. I also use it as an occasional treat. She is 13, almost 14. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dog likes it This was one of the dog foods that my doberman ' s cardiologist suggested to help assist with a low sodium diet. My dog had no problem switching she seems to like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has helped my dog beat the odds! Yes, my little guy has congestive heart failure, so my vet immediately put him on this special heart diet. Though he wasn't expected to survive much more than a year, it has now been over FOUR years, and he's still going strong. I truly feel that this special diet has made a major contribution to his survival (along with my learning not to feed him people-food or other high-salt foods). Without this product, I don't think I would still have my best friend around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Healthy I have three dogs with congestive heart failure. They were all coughing because of the water build up in their chests. EC is lower in sodium than most dog foods so it has helped all of them stop retaining water and are able to clear their chests of fluids easier.
