|Aortic stenosis (AS) is a defect of the aortic valve, which causes a partial obstruction of blood flow from the heart. This hereditary defect may be mild and not affect the quality or longevity of the dog’s life, or it may be severe and result in symptoms of exercise intolerance and syncope (fainting). It is also one of the causes of sudden death.|
