Title: Signs Indicating Heart Disease in Pets


1
Signs Indicating Heart Disease in Pets
2
Dogs are prone to illness and disease much like
humans are, and require ongoing care in order to
mitigate the factors that contribute to certain
concerning conditions.
3
One such condition is heart disease, which can
come in a variety of forms due to a variety of
issues and complications.
4
Here we will discuss the importance of monitoring
your pet for any health concerns and what you
should look for with heart disease in particular.
5
Recognizing Symptoms and Early Diagnosis
6
It is important to keep an eye on your pets
behavior on a daily basis, as this is one of the
only ways you will know if they are suffering
from a health condition such as heart disease.
7
If your pet can be diagnosed early, then you may
be able to regulate the effects of heart disease,
or even prevent your pets condition from
deteriorating.
8
Moreover, if you recognize any concerning changes
in your pets behavior, its always a good idea
to bring them to a trusted veterinarian
immediately for a checkup.
9
What to Look For in Your Pet
10
Heart disease is a life-threatening condition to
pets of all types and must be monitored and
regulated to promote your pets ongoing health.
11
Here are the symptoms of heart disease in your
pet.
12
Shifts in your pets energy levels and mood
13
Fatigue, lounging around the house more than
usual, not as affectionate, isolating themselves,
or lack of interest in activity play are all
concerning, whether it is related to heart
disease or not.
14
A cough that wont go away
15
A cough or wheezing should dissipate over the
course of a few days if due to allergies, but if
a cough lingers it could be indicative of heart
disease.
16
Breathing issues
17
Furthermore, shortness of breath, shallow
breathing, or labored breathing are immediate
causes for concern.
18
Loss of appetite
19
If your pet refuses food for any period of time
which is also accompanied by other symptoms of
heart disease, it is a red flag to follow up on
immediately.
20
Changes in your pets weight
21
If your pet suddenly begins to lose or gain
weight, this could be related to the effects of
heart disease on their body. Any sudden changes
in your pets body composition are concerning.
22
Weakness and fatigue
23
If you have noticed that your pet is abnormally
fatigued, gets exhausted easily, or has bouts of
fainting or seems to be consistently eager and
restless, this could also be a concern related to
heart disease.
24
Swollen limbs
25
This is also known as edema and causes your pets
limbs and abdomen to bloat or swell due to
alterations in blood flow is commonly related
to heart disease.
26
