Sarita Devi, R. G. Jani.

Nutritional management of dogs with cardiac problems can be handling with providing adequate calories, protein and modulating cytokine production to manage the possible cause of decreased appetite of the side effects of medications.

Therefore, careful selection of type, dose, and brand is important to avoid toxicities or complete lack of efficacy.

Key words: Nutrition, Management, Cardiac Disorder, Canine, Vitamin, Mineral, Fat, Protein.
