Heart Disease in Dogs

15 Feb 2019

The most common disease of the heart in dogs is Mitral valve disease (MVD).  It can affect all breeds of dogs but is most common in small and heart_001medium sized dogs from around 4-5 years old.

Initially it might only be the detection of a ‘mumur’ through a routine health check that points to a potential problem.

If you have any concerns about any aspect of your dog’s health, call and book in to speak to a vet.
