Prescription Blood Pressure & Heart Medicine for Dogs

Prescription blood pressure and heart medication for dogs will be prescribed to your pup after your veterinarian diagnoses any underlying conditions or causes. The most common diseases that can lead to high blood pressure in your pup are chronic kidney disease, adrenal gland tumors, and Cushing’s disease. Depending on the outcome of tests, your veterinarian may recommend blood pressure and heart medicine for dogs to help correct irregular heartbeats or slow fluid build-up in the lungs. In some cases, they may recommend surgery to correct a torn valve or to insert a pacemaker to correct the heart rhythm. Consult with your veterinarian to discuss symptoms and find a treatment that suits your pup’s medical needs.
