Do you have a middle aged dog that is beginning to cough, especially after exercise?
It is thought that at least 10% of all dogs will develop mitral valve disease in their life, particularly smaller breeds. It’s a progressive life long condition that can be effectively treated with the right combination of medications. It is often picked up during routine vet checks as a heart murmur. If you are concerned that your dog is slowing down, showing signs of coughing or has exercise intolerance, please call us today on (02) 4925 2999 to make an appointment.
