Symptoms of heart disease

We all love our pets and want to make sure they are in the best of health. Heart disease can be a scary thing when it comes to our furry friends, but understanding the warning signs can save their lives.

Signs of heart disease are usually easier to see in dogs and less detectable in cats. Schedule an appointment with your veterinarian especially if they fainted, have a persistent cough, difficulty breathing, or noticeable abdominal swelling.

Speaking of the vet, make sure you’re taking your cat or dog to theirs at least twice a year. A regular checkup could easily spot the early warning signs of heart disease in cats or dogs. Preventive, proactive care is the best kind of care we can offer our pets, and along with educating yourself with helpful resources like this infographic, will help to ensure they live long, healthy, and happy lives.
