MY DOG HAS A DEFECTIVE HEART VALVE

June 10, 2014

Dr. Kruger,

My dog has a defective heart valve — Will this be sufficient to compensate for the depletion of potassium and other minerals? If not, suggestions appreciated.

Hi Jim,

If your dog has a bad valve and is on diuretics, it may be a good idea to supplement With potassium along with the vitamins. You could have the blood level of potassium checked periodically. These things need to be monitored. Hope this helps some. Thanks for the question.
