High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a serious health issue for dogs and cats. Hypertension can be caused by many things, including diseases, medication, and even age.
During your pet’s annual examination, your veterinarian may check your pet’s blood pressure if these concerns are present. We recommend regular blood pressure screening for patients being treated for illness or for healthy senior pets.
