The collapsing dog: a cardiologist's viewpoint*
The collapsing dog: a cardiologist’s viewpoint
Dogs presented with collapse pose a genuine diagnostic challenge. Cardiovascular, neurological and specific metabolic disorders can all cause episodic collapse. From the cardiologist’s viewpoint, syncope is the most important type of collapse episode. Herein, we will discuss the approach to dogs with syncope, from key history points to the use of advanced diagnostic tests. The most important cardiovascular causes of syncope will be reviewed, with the aim of highlighting the range of pathophysiology that needs to be considered in the collapsing dog.
