Abstract

Arterial hypertension is a disease that affects both dogs and cats and presents great importance in veterinary clinic practice. It is characterized by sustained increase in systolic blood pressure systemic and / or diastolic and can cause deleterious consequences, especially in kidney, heart, eyes and central nervous system. Different studies have been conducted for the evaluation of techniques for measuring blood pressure in dogs, comparing different techniques, with animals in various states of consciousness and in different positions. The range of normality can vary physiologically in dogs, mainly according to breed, sex, age, temperament, pathological conditions, exercise and diet. Knowing that the Golden Retriever can submit muscular dystrophy canine linked to chromosome X and can develop dilated cardiomyopathy and systemic hypertension, in this study, the blood pressure (with Doppler) of 38 clinically healthy dogs of that breed was measure with the purpose to obtain parameters that could serve as a reference. From the results, we concluded that significant changes in body weight, mainly from three to six months, influence the blood pressure values, whereas systolic blood pressure is higher in males than in females, and that the pressure values pressure are variables within the same breed of dog.
