Royal Canin makes a good diet for heart patients. Most dogs will eat it. Hill's also makes one, but some dogs won't eat it. Purina makes one as well. All are prescription diets. Here are some examples:

I ran around town going to the several retail sources suggested- PETCO etc., looking for the dog food suggested. None of the sources have the brands suggested, and after much wasted time I found a Vet who could special order what I needed. Sorry. You could of saved me a ton of time and gas if you would have told me up front that the low

sodium food food has to be special ordered through a Vets office.
