High Blood Pressure in Dogs and High Blood Pressure in Cats

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a serious condition. Essentially it means the heart is working harder to pump the same amount of blood through the arteries and veins because they are narrower than they should be. High blood pressure in dogs, just like high blood pressure in cats and can cause a range of medical conditions. It’s important to learn more about the causes of high blood pressure in dogs and cats so you can address your pet’s needs today.

Hypertension in Dogs and Cats

All animals are susceptible to hypertension, and your pets are no exception. Unfortunately, this is a very dangerous condition indeed. Hypertension in dogs and cats can lead to heart disease, kidney damage, stroke and degradation of the retina.

Typically, hypertension in dogs and cats is a result of a disease. This includes Cushing's disease or hyperadrenocorticism in dogs, and hyperthyroidism and kidney disease in cats. Untreated hypertension in cats could result in kidney disease.

Low Blood Pressure in Dogs and Cats

Low blood pressure in dogs and cats, also known as hypotension, is a serious problem too. It can be caused by allergic reactions, dehydration, anemia, poor diet, trauma, thyroid conditions and more.

Testimonial

Dr. Barbara Bodolosky is a very talented and professional veterinarian and we chose her to be our vet for our new rescue pup, Sweetie. We are lifelong residents of Sullivan County and have had many vets treating our pets over the years. We picked Dr. B because we had read many glowing and thankful reviews on various websites and noted that her practice is listed as #2 in the Top Ten Vets in Sullivan County. We were instantly drawn to her warm, calm, caring and practice approach to animal care which is also evident in her interaction with us on each visit. Dr. B is willing to spend lots of time with us as we learn about our newest companion and discuss the best care and training for our wonderful, Sweetie – no question is too small. She has been practicing in Sullivan County since 2001 and caring for animals since 1993 after leaving the military. {Note: Recently friends of ours needed to have a very large fishhook removed from their toy Yorkie’s stomach and they report that Dr. B provided instant help and was a skillful surgeon – all went well. Another friend of ours told us that several groomers had tried and failed to clip her Shih Tzu’s nails due to his crazed behavior and his painfully long nails were now impacting his gait – Dr. B and her team accomplished this taking 45 slow and gentle minutes and only charging $16} All of her office staff are friendly and always helpful – happy to meet and greet your pets too. It should also be noted that the practice is bright and clean and modern – even the grounds are kept immaculately and are free of any “messes”! Animal Hospital of Sullivan County is open most days until 5 or 6 pm and offers on-call emergency services 7 days a week from 7:30am to 9pm. They also board pets and maintain the only local crematorium if such services are ever needed. (Dr. B had been most kind and beyond supportive when we were faced with the illness and eventual loss of our beloved dog after 18 years of being a most important member of our family.) We cannot recommend Dr. B more highly and we thank her for her service and care.
