Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour Through California Cities to Provide Free Heart Examinations in Sound-Proof Setting
Date:4/1/2009

Mobile Exam Room Stopping in Pasadena and San Diego

ST. JOSEPH, Mo., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- This spring, some dog owners in California will find that getting their pets' hearts checked is a walk in the park. Veterinary cardiologists on the Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour will make stops in April 4 and 5 with a sound-proof medical unit at San Diego and Pasadena Beach parks to perform free heart examinations of area dogs.

In addition to performing free heart health screenings, veterinarians will be available to answer questions for dog owners about the common ailment.

Heart disease in dogs is almost as common as it is in humans. About 11 percent of the nearly 75 million dogs in the United States have heart disease, and that figure increases to as many as 60 percent among dogs over age 5 and certain predisposed breeds. Yet, a national survey shows that more than half of dog owners are unaware that their dog may be at risk of heart failure.

"Early diagnosis and treatment of heart failure can significantly prolong and improve the quality of a dog's life," says Ruth MacPete, DVM, a San Diego veterinarian, media personality and pet author who will travel with a local veterinary cardiologist on the Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour. "We look forward to reaching out to local dog owners to educate them about heart disease in dogs and the treatment options. 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."

At dog parks and beaches in the cities on the tour, veterinary cardiologists will perform free dog heart screenings from inside a special sound-proof mobile exam room. They will use a stethoscope to listen for heart murmurs and other irregular sounds as well as generally assess whether or not the dogs show any signs of heart disease.
