Shelties & heart disease

Post by JPE » Fri May 08, 2020 4:19 pm

Hello! I am new to this forum, but have had shelties in my life for the past 35 years. So far, 3 of our 5 shelties have/had were diagnosed with heart murmurs and heart disease o various kinds. It has been so discouraging! Is this common in shelties? Are the breeders working to correct the problem? My husband and I currently have 2 shelties, a 6 and a half year old blue merle, who seems to be healthy, and an almost 13 year old rescue sheltie, who has just been diagnosed with a heart murmur. The other 2 who had heart disease are now over the rainbow bridge. I'd welcome any information.

Which medicine will help your dog for heart disease?
Whats the symptoms of heart disease? how to identify? and when should I see the veterinarian?
