Can dog have heart attack?
My lab is 14 years old and has lost most of her hearing. She has just recently developed an intense fear of thunderstorms. Since I have to work and leave her alone, I'm worried she may have a heart attack. She is in otherwise good health for her age. During a storm She paces and pants to the point, I'm afraid she'll drop dead from exhaustion. I hate to give her any drugs, as she has had a close call with her liver when the vet gave her Rimadyl.
By the way if you have a lab DO NOT give them Rimadyl. Labs have a tendency for liver and kidney failure on Rimadyl. Some dogs may tolerate it, but a few will not. I was one of the unlucky ones. Don't take the chance. Ask your vet for tramadol .
