Heart Disease

 Canine Heart Disease Email List

This list is for anyone living with a dog with heart disease, or simply interested in
learning more about the various conditions and treatment options available for
 these dogs. As well, I would hope we can offer one another support for the
sometimes difficult aspects of caring for a dog with heart disease. All approaches
are welcome; I would ask only that no one outlook dominate the list, to the
exclusion of others. This is a complex and challenging illness; we need to support
 and learn from, not argue with, one another.
