Pets with cardiac disease are more prone to oxidative stress. Free radicals are cytotoxic and have a negative inotropic effect. Polyphenols, thanks to their antioxidant properties, significantly minimise the deleterious effects of free radicals. Moreover, they have an antihypertensive action (Duarte 2001), by stimulating the endogenous production of nitric oxide (a local vasodilator).

For UK delivery, we charge the following:
Prices quoted are for delivery to all parts of mainland UK except certain Scottish postcodes (where the price is higher for items sent by courier. Delivery of food abroad (including Channel Islands, N. Ireland and other islands around the UK) is charged at a higher price and free delivery is not available. Temperature controlled products, such as Insulin, are also not always subject to the standard and/or free delivery options.
For full information on our delivery charges, including prices on heavy deliveries to Scotland and abroad, see our delivery information page.
We can deliver most items to all around the world, but prices do vary. The majority of light weight orders (less than 1.5kg) can be delivered for a flat rate of £10. For an accurate estimate of the delivery charge, please put the items you require in your basket and use the "Estimate Delivery" system on the shopping basket page (you only need to enter your country and postal/zip code) for a quick quote.

Due to air freight restrictions aerosols cannot ever be sent abroad by Royal Mail. We appreciate your understanding.
Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you.

You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Royal Canin Canine Veterinary (Clinical) Diets Cardiac Dog Food, including answers from our team.
My vet has prescribed Royal Canine Cardiac dry food for my dog. Coould you please advise me how to feed it. Do I add water to it, or serve it dry - and does it need something else like a slice of Nature Diet. With many thanks.
Ideally you do not give any other food as that will upset the balance of nutrients the diet is trying to achieve. You can give it dry (most people do) or add water, whatever your dog prefers it. You must make sure water is available at all times. This sort of diet is rarely as enjoyable to eat as good quality wet diets, so you might find that your dog eats it without any enjoyment and not in great quantities. This is not a medical concern (in fact lots of dogs need to lose weight and so eating less is a good thing). However it can be difficult for caring owners to accept, regardless of being healthier.
