Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour Stopping in Central Park to Provide Free Heart Examinations
Date:10/1/2009

ST. JOSEPH, Mo., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- This fall, dog owners in New York City will find that getting their pets' hearts checked is a walk in the park. Veterinarians on the Mobile Dog Heart Health Tour will stop in Central Park on October 13 with a soundproof medical unit to perform free heart examinations for area dogs and to answer questions about canine heart disease.

In addition to performing free heart health screenings in Central Park, veterinarians and veterinary cardiologists will provide information at the Canine Heart Health booth at the "Meet the Breeds" event on October 17 and 18.

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 Nigel Swift, board-certified veterinarian with Boehringer Ingelheim, sponsor of 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 their 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."

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on October 13 at Central Park's Naumburg Bandshell, a local veterinary cardiologist will perform free dog heart screenings from inside a special soundproof mobile exam room. He will use a stethoscope to listen
