Ginkgo Biloba is an herbal remedy made from the leaves of the ginkgo biloba tree, one of the oldest species of trees in the world. The ginkgo leaf stimulates blood flow to the extremities and the brain.

Ginkgo Biloba has been recommended for the treatment of dementia. It helps to boost long and short-term memory and has been used to treat Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia in people and dogs.

Hawthorne is often referred to as a cardiac tonic. It’s known to improve the general function of the heart by increasing blood circulation and dilating and relaxing the blood vessels, thus helping to transport oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.

Hawthorne may normalize heart activity by strengthening an erratic or weak heartbeat, and is a helpful supplement for dogs experiencing heart failure.

Always check with your vet before changing your dog’s diet or adding supplements.
