This report, issued by the ACVIM Specialty of Cardiology consensus panel, revisesguidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of myxomatous mitral valve disease(MMVD, also known as endocardiosis and degenerative or chronic valvular heart dis-ease) in dogs, originally published in 2009. Updates were made to diagnostic, as wellas medical, surgical, and dietary treatment recommendations. The strength of theserecommendations was based on both the quantity and quality of available evidencesupporting diagnostic and therapeutic decisions. Management of MMVD before theonset of clinical signs of heart failure has changed substantially compared with the2009 guidelines, and new strategies to diagnose and treat advanced heart failure andpulmonary hypertension are reviewed.KEYWORDScanine, congestive heart failure, evidence-based treatment, mitral
