    By Heather Larson

    Knowing what health issues your dog is susceptible to gives you the chance to catch a malady early when you have ample time to modify it. When the issue concerns the heart, you can slow down the disease before it progresses to heart failure, says Dr. Christopher Stauthammer, associate professor of veterinary cardiology at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. “Heightened awareness gives your dog a better quality of life, increased quantity of life, and minimizes the need for additional medication,” Stauthammer says.
