Abstract:
Dogs presented with clinical signs suggestive of cardiac insufficiency were screened for the DCM. Detailed clinical examination, physical examination, haematology, serum biochemistry, thoracic radiography, electrocardiography and echocardiography were carried out to confirm the DCM. Prognostic findings were noted in 26 dogs with DCM. The unfavourable prognostic indicators observed in DCM dogs included aged dogs above 8 years, weight loss, open mouth breathing, orthopnoea, syncope, tachycardia, ascites, high serum creatinine, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, pulmonary odema, pleural effusion, fractional shortening below 10 percent, ejection fraction below 25 percent and restrictive transmitral flow pattern.
