Optimal treatment for your dog requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical. Administer prescribed medications as directed and be certain to contact your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your dog.

Following successful PDA closure, the initial follow up is about 10 to 14 days later. In uncomplicated cases, no further follow-up is required. Referral to a veterinary cardiologist can be helpful in hard to diagnose cases or when there are questions about alternative treatment options.

If heart failure has occurred, follow-up care is critical.
