Schwarzman Animal Medical Center offering free zoom on congenital heart disease in cats and dogs

All For Animals Host Susan Richard’s article reprinted from

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) It’s always nerve-wracking for pet parents when your animal gets sick. Maybe your cat or dog is lethargic, tires easily or is short of breath.

You take them to the Vet, only to learn they’ve got congenital heart disease, which, over time, can lead to serious complications if left untreated. But what type do they have? What are the signs and symptoms? What’s the prognosis and, perhaps most importantly, what can be done to save your beloved pet’s life?

Those are the questions Senior Veterinarian in Cardiology, Dr. Carl Toborowsky of the Schwarzman Animal Medical Center on Manhattan’s Upper East Side will answer as part of a free webinar, Wednesday, March 15 at 6pm, presented by AMC’s Usdan Institute.

Dr. Toborowsky gave 1010 WINS a preview and also discussed acquired heart disease in pets as well. Listen here:
