For the treatment of canine congestive heart failure in dogs.
Enacard is often used to treat cardiac failure in dogs. Heart failure can be of two types: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, when the walls of the heart chambers thicken, and dilated cardiomyopathy, when the muscles forming the heart chamber walls weaken. Dilated cardiomyopathy is more frequent and leads to congestive heart failure, which results in fluid accumulation in the lungs, chest or abdomen. The blood returning to the heart cannot be pumped in order to properly feed the tissues.
Enacard works by inhibiting the hormones and compounds that constrict the blood vessels, making it easier for the heart to pump.
