bullysmile.2The Most Common Forms Of Dog Heart Disease

Arrhythmias – The dog’s electrical system in the body isn’t telling the heart how to beat.

Pericardial Disease – There is a sac that surrounds the heart and it fills with fluid preventing the heart from beating normally.

Dilated Cardiomyopathy – This disease affects the muscle of the heart impairing the ability to pump normally.

cleftlipA cleft palate is a physical birth defect caused by incomplete fusing of the two halves of the palate during neonatal development. The palate is the roof of the mouth.

 The hard palate is the front part of the roof of the mouth, between the teeth, and separates the oral cavity from the nose. The soft palate extends from the back of the hard palate to the throat (pharynx) and is made of softer, fleshier tissue.
