A pet’s cardiovascular system is composed of a heart with 4 chambers ( 2 atria and 2 ventricles), multiple valves, veins and arteries. Because of its intricacies, a pet’s heart is prone to various debilitating and life-threatening conditions and diseases. Often, the sooner these illnesses are diagnosed, the more positive a pet’s outlook is. For this reason, it is important to seek veterinary care when you first notice a change in your pet’s normal temperament.
