Heart Disease in Dogs

Symptoms of heart disease might include dry coughing after exercising, unexplained weight loss, shortness of breath, depression, and decreased appetite.

Early detection is important when it comes to managing heart disease in dogs so be sure to bring your pet to a veterinarian on our team once a year for a routine check-up or if you start to notice his health is failing. Your pet may need medication in addition to lifestyle changes (such as changing their food) to support their heart health.

Supporting Your Dog's Heart Health

It can be scary if your dog is diagnosed with heart disease. Thankfully, there are some steps that you can take to protect your dog's heart, including:

●             Keeping your pet at a healthy weight

●             Taking your pet for regular vet exams

●             Giving your pet parasite preventatives (based on your vet's recommendations)

●             Providing your dog with frequent exercise
