Signs Your Pet May have Heart Disease
Signs of heart disease in dogs typically include:
- Murmur (abnormal heart beat sound)
- Lethargy and/or exercise intolerance
- Labored/rapid breathing
Cats often do not show visible signs of heart disease until heart failure sets in. The key to early detection of heart disease in cats is for them to have regular examinations and routine heart screenings. This is especially important as cats get older and become more at risk, with the Maine Coon breed being particularly susceptible.
