Dogs With a Heart Murmur

Description: Study evaluating early heart disease in dogs that will measure activity levels at home. Activity will be recorded using a small device attached to the dog’s collar.

Eligibility: Dogs with moderate intensity or louder murmur, but in otherwise good health and not affected by mobility-limiting pain from osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. Dogs should not be on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications

Financial Incentive: The study will pay $300 towards the cost of evaluation by the cardiology service. This evaluation includes an extensive health screening
