Dosage Instructions by Weight
When giving Hepara-Cleanse and Rena-Cleanse wait at least 15 minutes after having given Canine Heart Tonic and/or Hawthorne. This allows the body to focus on one area at a time. Giving specific formulae too close together will not do any harm, it will simply lessen the effectiveness of the formulae.
Our tincture bottle includes a glass dropper. For your dog’s safety we recommend using a plastic oral syringe (without needle) 5 to 10 ml (cc) to administer the liquid formulae. These are available from your veterinarian or pharmacy. We recommend diluting the formulae with some plain unsweetened yogurt, baby food or applesauce in the syringe, this will help take the edge off the taste. See photo below for further instructions on administering liquid formulae.
Cayenne and Ginger can be administered in capsule form (see photos below). Simply open your dog’s mouth and place capsule at the back of the throat. Rub throat in a downward motion so the dog swallows. For dogs who have trouble or are not cooperative swallowing capsules, the cayenne and ginger can be mixed with some plain unsweetened yogurt, baby food or unsweetened applesauce and given by syringe directly in the mouth.
Canine Heart Tonic, Hawthorne, Cayenne and Ginger can all be administered in the same dose by mixing with plain unsweetened yogurt, baby food or applesauce and syringing into the side of your dogs mouth.
Please note: Our 2 oz tinctures contain approximately 70 droppersful or 2400 drops of formula. One squeeze of the rubber top of the dropper fills the pipette approximately half full (35 drops), this is considered one dropperful.

Probably the most effective therapy in any natural healing program, hydrotherapy has been used for centuries to cure every type of disease. From the Greek physician Hippocrates, John Floyer in England, Vincenz Priessnitz and Sebastian Kneipp in Germany, Benedict Lust to the famous John Kellogg and O G Carroll right here in North America all used hydrotherapy to cure illness.
Hot water brings blood to the surface of the skin, which is why the skin turns red, it relaxes the body by expanding blood vessels and loosening the muscles. Cold water does the opposite; it contracts the muscles and blood vessels sending the blood on the surface deeper into the body and organs. By alternating hot and cold you increase circulation in the body. Blood carries oxygen and nutrition to every cell and organ in the body, when blood is restricted to any area of the body that area will eventually die. Imagine your pet’s diseased heart as a partially dried sponge starving for water, over time without water it will dry up fall apart. By feeding your dog a proper diet and loading his blood with the right herbs and nutrition, hydrotherapy will ensure your pet’s heart will receive everything it needs to heal.
The first time we started hydrotherapy to treat sick animals we would do the whole body, we later began applying hydrotherapy directly to the sick areas and we noticed miracles. Heart murmurs that still lingered after healing dog’s hearts disappeared. A brutal sinus infection that was bleeding and unstoppable for 6 months disappeared after only three days of hydrotherapy. Dogs that were diagnosed with a ripped cruciate ligament healed in weeks. These are just a sample of the amazing healings we have personally seen, I mention these to illustrate how strong the healing power of hydrotherapy is.
You will need to shave the hair from the area on the left side of your dog’s ribcage by his armpit. You should be able to feel the heart beating; this is how you will know you are in the right area. If you are not sure where the heart is located ask your veterinarian to show you.
Put your dog in the tub, you will need a hand sprayer. Turn the water on warm and apply to the heart area. Get him used to the water, after about a minute turn up the heat to the hottest setting you can handle without burning yourself. Keep this on his heart for one minute. Then turn the hot water completely off and spray the cold water for another full minute. Repeat this for 10-15 minutes at least twice a day. (See photo below.)
End on warm to relax or cold to invigorate. You will notice when on warm your dog may yawn or even start to dose off and on cold they will perk right up!
If your dog is too weak to stand in the tub for 10-15 minutes or he is too stressed by water a second best option would be to use hot and cold packs. The best are the gel packs you can find at the pharmacy that you can warm up in the microwave and cool by putting in the fridge or freezer (you will need two packs to do this). The routine is the same but instead you will be placing the hot pack on for 1 minute, then switching to the cold pack for one minute, back and forth for 10-15 minutes.
WARNING: If your dog is very sick, in heart failure or in a later stage of heart disease start off using only warm and cool water. Over a week’s time slowly building up to the therapy as described above.
