Traditionally, the herb hawthorn, or Crataegus oxycantha, was used as an astringent to treat diarrhea, among other conditions. Today, it is thought of chiefly as a heart tonic, helping energize the circulatory system of dogs as well as humans, normalize blood pressure and reduce arrhythmia.
Its corrective effects on heart muscle make it a good choice for dogs with cardiovascular problems and congestive heart failure.
Hawthorn is an extremely valued herb and has well-known cardio-tonic attributes. Hawthorn works by preserving a healthy energy supply to the heart and supporting its pumping ability.
Hawthorn also has strong anti-oxidant properties to sustain artery health and strength. Many recent studies have substantiated the benefits of Hawthorn on the health of the cardiovascular system.
