  • Awww... I'm so sorry for your loss. Yes, dogs can have heart attacks... their circulatory systems are not that different from ours.

  • I am sure it is possible. My Aussie had and Aneurysm in his heart and died one night while we slept. It was awful he was an older dog but he looked and acted like a young dog. In fact the day before he died we were playing ball and he was having a great time running around. It was devistating. I am so sorry for your loss!
