Veterinary Cardiology is the branch of medicine that treats diseases of the canine and feline cardiovascular system, which includes the pet’s heart and blood vessels. This encompasses such problems as canine and feline congestive heart failure, hypertension, dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and valvular disorders.
Symptoms of Canine or Feline Heart Problems
Shortness of breath or apparent difficulty in breathing (due to fluid in the lungs or chest cavity)
