Protect Your Pup's Heart

Veterinarians will be in San Diego at the Ocean Beach Dog Beach this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. giving free heart exams.

It's all a part of the Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour, which will be making stops around California to teach dog owners about heart disease and how it can be treated and prevented.

“Early diagnosis and treatment of heart failure can significantly prolong and improve the quality of a dog’s life,” says San Diego veterinarian Ruth MacPete, DVM. By emphasizing the importance of annual veterinary examinations and early diagnosis of heart disease, we hope to help more dogs live longer and better lives.”

Heart disease is almost as common in dogs as it is in humans. 11 percent of the nearly 75 million dogs in the United States have heart disease, but a national survey shows that more than half of dog owners are unaware that their dog may be at risk.
