We love our dogs with all our hearts; now it’s time to get to know theirs better. Invoxia reports that between 10% and 20% of dogs are either at risk or already suffer from heart conditions that are difficult to diagnose. While some breeds are predisposed to disease, these conditions can impact many dogs as they grow older.
