Our little friends do have loving hearts!!! 🙂
Over 10% of dogs and cats all over the world have some cardio problems. More than 30% of them will show a heart failure in their lifetime.
Stethoscope is a very good tool for a heart check, but it isn’t sufficient to diagnose a specific cardio illness. We should make Heart Ultrasound, which is completely safe and painless for your dog and will inform us which kind of medication should we use. It’s also indicated for dogs and cats before surgical intervention and anesthesia.
What are the symptoms of heart illness?
1) gasping, breathing with opened snout
2) is coughing
3) had a syncope episode
4) is a senior pet (over 7 years old)
5) would have a surgery intervention
