What is coenzyme Q-10?

Coenzyme Q-10 (also called CoQ-10, ubiquinol, or ubiquinone) is found in every human and animal body and is an essential component of the mitochondria in cells. Mitochondria are responsible for making energy from carbohydrates and oxygen, so CoQ-10 is particularly important in cells that use a lot of energy, like muscle and brain cells. CoQ-10 is used as a supplemental therapy for heart and neurological conditions in cats and dogs. It also functions as an antioxidant, and therefore is also used as a supplemental treatment for inflammatory conditions and some cancers.

 

 

 

How effective is coenzyme Q-10?

A limited number of studies in animals have been performed, but there is some evidence that coenzyme Q-10 works to support the treatment of heart disease in dogs. Anecdotal evidence suggests that CoQ-10 may be effective in the treatment of gum disease and some cancers.

 

How is coenzyme Q-10 given?

CoQ-10 is given by mouth in the form of a capsule or liquid. It may be given with or without food; however, if stomach upset occurs when dosed on an empty stomach, give future doses with food.
