Abstract: The present study was conducted to evaluate hemato-biochemical, radiological and ultrasonographic changes in dogs suffering from cardiac failure. A through cardiovascular check-up comprising of haematology, clinical biochemistry, radiology and ECG was performed. There was a non significant decrease in haemoglobin, TEC and PCV compared to healthy geriatric dogs of same age. There was a significantly (P<0.05) increased level of CPK (236.54±27.30 U/L), LDH (1365±182.5 U/L), creatinine (3.01+1.29 mg/dl), nitric oxide (30.84±4.44 U/L) and other parameters. The thoracic radiography review cardiomegaly, increase in chest depth and increase in chest width. A-V block, congestive heart failure and atrial enlargement were the significant electrocardiographic findings in geriatric dogs.
