About Congestive Heart Failure in Dogs
The Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour is designed to educate people about congestive heart failure (CHF) in dogs. While there is no cure for CHF, clinical study results have shown that dogs with the condition live nearly twice as long and enjoy a higher quality of life when diagnosed and treated during the early stages of heart failure.
