Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC)
Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy is a disease where severe rhythm disturbances occur, and in some cases, the heart quits pumping normally and becomes enlarged and flabby.

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM)
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disease where the heart, for mostly unknown reasons, quits pumping normally and becomes enlarged and flabby.

Mitral Insufficiency
(also called mitral regurgitation (MR), chronic degenerative valve disease (CVD), myxomatous degeneration or endocardiosis )

Mitral Insufficiency-Trivial Or Mild
Mitral insufficiency is due to a degeneration of the mitral valve With a small amount of leak, there are no chamber enlargements.

Mitral Insufficiency-Moderate
Mitral insufficiency is due to a degeneration of the mitral valve. With moderate insufficiency, since a significant amount of blood is now moving back and forth within the left side of the heart, the left atrium especially starts to enlarge to [...]

Mitral Insufficiency-Severe
Mitral insufficiency is due to a degeneration of the mitral valve. With a severe leak backwards through the valve, chamber enlargements are quite significant.

Mitral Insufficiency-Chordae Rupture
Mitral Insufficiency is where the mitral valve (on the left side of the heart) valve starts leaking backwards. With a major chordae rupture, the left atrium has not had time to enlarge. When there is fluid in the lungs, this is called congesti [...]

Mitral Insufficiency-Congestive Heart Failure
Mitral Insufficiency is where the mitral valve (on the left side of the heart) valve starts leaking backwards. Congestive Heart Failure is when there is fluid in the lungs, this is called congestive heart failure (there is "congestion" in the [...]

Mitral Insufficiency-Left Atrial Tear
Mitral Insufficiency is where the mitral valve (on the left side of the heart) valve starts leaking backwards. With a severe leak, the left atrium is usually very enlarged. In some dogs, the left atrium is so large and thin-walled, that it act [...]

Mitral Insufficiency-Myocardial Dysfunction
Mitral Insufficiency is where the mitral valve (on the left side of the heart) valve starts leaking backwards. Myocardial dysfunction is where the heart muscle does not function appropriately.

Mitral Insufficiency-Secondary Pulmonary Hypertension
Mitral Insufficiency is where the mitral valve (on the left side of the heart) valve starts leaking backwards. Secondary Pulmonary Hypertension is where high blood pressures in the lung occur which can then lead to problems in the right side o [...]
