OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to estimate the incidence of aortic stenosis (AS) in a group of Boxers evaluated by auscultation, ECG, blood pressure measurement and Doppler-echocardiography. BACKGROUND The Boxer is a breed at significantly increased risk of AS. The prevalence of murmurs and Doppler-echocardiographic findings consistent with AS in this breed is reportedly high. ANIMALS, MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-nine Boxers were evaluated by auscultation, and final murmur grade… CONTINUE READING
