A discussion about CHF in dogs including audio of heart murmurs.
Animal Hospital of Casper - On Line Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Congestive heart failure is one of the more common heart diseases seen in dogs, especially smaller breeds. A variety of signs may be present with CHF. This disease is normally seem in senior or geriatric age dogs. A sometimes insidious chronic cough develops over time and the pet may exhibit reduced exercise tolerance. Veterinarians must use all resources to accurately diagnose heart diseases, starting with a comprehensive physical examination and history. Below are examples of actual normal heart sounds and a heart murmur. (return to Physical exam Click on the Heart to hear actual recording of " Normal Heart Sounds and Heart Murmur "! The murmur sound is most often a result of an abnormality of the heart valves. Chronic infections, including dental disease, can cause the heart valves to become irritated and scarred for life. This diseased valves do not close tightly and, therefore, the murmur can be heard. Poor valve closure creates high blood pressure which results in retention of fluids in the lungs (sometimes the abdomen, as well). Poor circulation from the heart to the other organs (kidneys, liver and brain) can result in deterioration of those organs systems depending on good blood circulation. These pictures show the differences from a Normal heart and a CHF heart with diseased valves.

Preventing Congestive Heart Failure
University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota
The morbidity, mortality and health care costs associated with congestive heart failure make prevention a more attractive public health strategy than treatment. Aggressive management of etiologic factors, including hypertension, coronary artery disease, valvular disease and excessive alcohol intake, can prevent the left ventricular remodeling and dysfunction that lead to heart failure. Early intervention with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors in patients with chronic left ventricular dysfunction can prevent, as well as treat, the syndrome. Several intervention strategies in patients with acute myocardial infarction can slow or prevent the left ventricular remodeling process that antedates congestive heart failure. The primary care physician must be alert to the need for aggressive intervention to reduce the burden of heart failure syndrome on the patient and on society. C ongestive heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome characterized by exertional dyspnea, fatigue and, often, peripheral edema resulting from left ventricular dysfunction. Although the extent of the abnormal function of the left ventricle can be quantitated, it is more difficult to measure the severity of symptoms; furthermore, the specific mechanism underlying the symptoms remains poorly understood. Since neurohormonal systems are often stimulated in the heart failure syndrome, activation of the sympathetic nervous system and the renin angiotensin system is often implicated in sodium retention, edema formation and some other symptoms of heart failure.

Congestive Heart Failure
(En español) The words "heart failure" sound alarming, but they do not mean that your heart has suddenly stopped working. Instead, heart failure means your heart is not pumping as well as it should to deliver oxygen-rich blood to your body's cells. Congestive heart failure (CHF) happens when the heart's weak pumping action causes a buildup of fluid called congestion in your lungs and other body tissues. CHF usually develops slowly. You may go for years without symptoms, and the symptoms tend to get worse with time. This slow onset and progression of CHF is caused by your heart's own efforts to deal with its gradual weakening. Your heart tries to make up for this weakening by enlarging and by forcing itself to pump faster to move more blood through your body.

The term "heart failure" should not be confused with cardiac arrest, a situation in which the heart actually stops beating. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Heart failure is almost always a chronic, long-term condition, although it can sometimes develop suddenly. This condition may affect the right side, the left side, or both sides of the heart. As the heart's pumping action is lost, blood may back up into other areas of the body, including: With heart failure, many organs don't receive enough oxygen and nutrients, which damages them and reduces their ability to function properly. Most areas of the body can be affected when both sides of the heart fail.

17. Heart Failure Wall Stress Drops 38% With Moderate Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Heart failure wall stress drops 38% with moderate thyroid hormone therapy
Unexpected cell shape change raises possibility of novel therapeutic approach; Further animal study urged before human testing
BETHESDA, Md. (May 12, 2005) – Not only is low thyroid function very common in congestive heart failure, it also indicates a reduced likelihood of recovery, and an increased chance of death. But based on earlier work showing that whatever leads to heart failure it is always preceded by changes in the heart cells, a new study demonstrates that a moderate dose of thyroid hormones (TH) over 30 days "normalizes" the shape of the cardiac cells (myocytes) and reduces stress on the heart's wall nearly 40%. "As patients move toward heart failure, the myocytes become longer and flatter, and the wall stress worsens," according to the head of the laboratory where the research was performed. "But moderate TH therapy selectively targeted myocyte cross-sectional shape and modified it in a positive way. This is the first clue on what might be a novel therapeutic approach to heart failure because of the return to a more normal heart cell shape," according to A. Martin Gerdes, director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute, University of South Dakota.
