Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Early Cardiac dry dog food is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky Chihuahua loves this food. My 13 year old Chihuahua was diagnosed with a heart murmur a few years back. I want to do everything I can to keep my baby happy and healthy as long as I can. I was honestly doubtful of the palatablity of this food but ordered a bag anyways. I was so excited to see that my extremely picky eater loved this food! She has been on the food for over a year now and still devours it at meal time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My little boys love the taste I began feeding this to Toby due to an enlarged heart and other health issues two years ago. He loved the taste and would eat every morsel. He had to be put to sleep last Friday because his heart was pushing on his trachra and his coughing had gotten really bad. He was on so much medicines which kept him drugged most of the time which wasn’t fair to him. We gave a good fight and now he is in doggie Heaven with my two girls and running and playing with no coughing or trouble breathing. The reason I am entering this is a year and a half ago I rescued a 4, two weeks old puppies and saved them when their mother went missing from a puppy mill. I found homes for 3 of them but the one I named Teddy I couldn’t let him go. He started eating Toby’s food and will not eat anything else. I have tried several kinds including your new sensitive formula and he wouldn’t eat it. I had ordered a bag of the early cardiac for Toby and Teddy ate a bowl of it as soon as I opened the bag. He loves it. The next bag I know I will have to get a prescription from my vet doing can keep getting it for Teddy.
