As our Cavaliers age, they become more at risk for Mitral Valve Disease (MVD), an acquired and
progressive disease of the heart which is hereditary to our breed. Research tells us that 50% of Cavaliers
by the age of 5-6 will develop a heart murmur; 100% by the age of 10. It is important to monitor their heart
health regularly. In most cases, your regular veterinarian visit will include an auscultation (careful listen to)
of the heart to monitor the heart sounds for a possible murmur.
At Coosa Creek Cavaliers, my breeding dogs are screened by Dr. Tacy Rupp, board certified
cardiologist, with the hope to limit the risk of "early onset MVD."
Please stay tuned for updates on upcoming Cardiology Clinic with Dr. Rupp.
