Difficulty breathing, coughing and falling over are all side effects of potentially life-threatening heart disease. Unfortunately, not all dogs with heart disease present with these typical signs. Our staff is committed to diagnosing heart problems early in the disease process and being proactive through the use of routine blood pressure monitoring, heartworm testing, chest x-rays, ECG and even cardiac ultrasonography when needed. Using a multimodal approach to treating congestive heart failure will not only limit clinical signs, it will extend the quality of life.
