How Do I Know if it is a Cardiac Emergency?

You know your pet best.  If they are acting in an abnormal way, something may be wrong and evaluation with a veterinarian may be needed.
Common signs of cardiac disease that may indicate an emergency situation include:
  • Sudden occurance or worsening of a cough

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Abdominal Swelling

  • Weakness/Collapse


These are common signs of cardiac emergencies, but other signs may exist. 

If you are concerned, then you should have your pet evaluated.
