What Is Heart Failure?
Heart failure, also known as cardiac insufficiency, is when the heart is no longer able to pump blood around the body properly. This causes increased blood pressure and fluid to leak into the lungs, and sometimes other organs. Congestive heart failure is unfortunately very common, it occurs in about 10% of all dogs and around 75% of senior dogs.
The Best Heart Medication for Dogs
Signs and symptoms of heart failure in dogs may vary depending on the underlying disease or which side of the heart is affected. However, these are the most common signs to watch out for:

• Swollen belly
• Fatigue and inability to exercise>

If your dog presents with any of these symptoms or you are worried it might have a heart condition, contact your vet as soon as possible. Only a vet can diagnose your dog with a heart condition.
