If your dog has been diagnosed with heart disease, there is no need to feel down-hearted. With your care and suitable medication from your Vet, a better, longer life for your dog is now achievable.
Just like a person, a healthy dog is a happier, more playful, and more appreciative companion. As long as its heart is healthy, your dog can probably look forward to many happy years together with you - so it's important for you to make sure that your dog's heart is in top-notch condition.
Heart disease affects 25% of dogs over seven years old. The good news is that if problems are diagnosed early and proper treatment given, a dog with heart disease can live a longer, fuller life.
That's where your vet plays a role. Schedule regular check ups with your vet. If you suspect that your dog has a health issue of any kind, or you notice that your dog hasn't been acting normally, see your local Vet.
