Signs Of Congestive Heart Failure In Dogs


Apartment Listing  

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) in dogs has been rampant in recent times. The most obvious of the reasons is attributed to the mitral valve, which could be found in the heart. It is because of the failure of mitral valve to function, leads to protruding or ineffective performance of the heart.

When a dog experiences this condition, symptoms could be clearly recognized such as the dog's inability to play due to the lack of energy apart from difficulty in breathing and coughing while taking rest.

In addition, other initial symptoms which  convey that a dog is suffering from congestive heart failure are blue tongue (cyanosis), intense drooling, or collapsing may be the first signs that anything is wrong. The signs that indicate advanced stage of the disease are when the dog is diagnosed for ascites cyanosis and pulmonary edema.

It must be observed that heart disease in a dog is an internal problem. Moreover, to perceive that a dog is suffering from congestive heart failure, one must check whether a dog is able to respire normally. If the condition is abnormal, it must be noted that fluids are flowing into the lungs making it more difficult for the respiration to take place.

Some of the early symptoms of congestive heart failure in dogs are:

  • Extensive panting, puffing and coughing
  • Lethargic attitude of the dog and lack of energy
  • Bluish gums and tongue
  • Constant coughing
          Dogs with a non-responsive heart can be made to stand with their front legs stretched apart, with their necks down and elongated to induce more air circulation into the lungs.
