Dogs often suffer from secondary hypertension, or high blood pressure due to some underlying disease process. The most common canine diseases that can lead to high blood pressure are chronic kidney disease, Cushing’s disease (an overproduction of cortisone by the body), and adrenal gland tumors.
There are some signs of hypertension that can be observed. These include:
Sudden blindness, bleeding inside the globe of the eye, and persistently dilated pupils
Nervous system signs like depression, head tilt, seizures, disorientation, wobbly or uncoordinated movements (called “ataxia”), circling, weakness or partial paralysis, or short, rapid, back-and-forth movements of the eyes (called “nystagmus”)
Increased drinking and urinating with the progression of chronic kidney disease
Blood in the urine (called “hematuria”)
Bleeding in the nose and nasal passages (known as “epistaxis” or nosebleed)
