Subaortic Stenosis Case
A 1-year-old French Bulldog was referred because of a heart murmur that was heard during routine examination. The owner had not noticed any problems. Clinical examination revealed a 4/6 systolic murmur with a maximum over the left heart base. Mucous membranes were pink, capillary refill time 1.5 sec. Pulse quality was a little bit weaker than normal.
No X-rays were performed because there was no clinical sign of pulmonary congestion. Heart ultrasound showed moderate left ventricular concentric hypertrophy.
