Recognizing Cardiac Issues in Your Pet

It's important to know the warning signs of potential cardiac problems in your pet. The best way to monitor for congestive heart failure (CHF) at home is by keeping an eye on their resting respiratory rate. Pets that can sleep peacefully without labored breathing are less likely to have CHF. If your pet is breathing rapidly or showing signs of difficulty breathing, they require urgent veterinary attention.

Additional symptoms of heart disease in pets include coughing, breathing difficulties, exercise intolerance, and fainting. Fainting episodes (syncope) may resemble seizures, but pets typically recover quickly and behave normally within a minute. If you notice any of these signs, please seek veterinary care immediately.
