A Dog’s Heart and Circulation

The heart is a four-chambered pump made of muscle. The four chambers are separated by heart valves that ensure that blood can only flow in one direction.

The heart is a part of the circulatory system along with the lungs and blood vessels.  Each contraction of the heart muscle pumps blood around the body, supplying the organs with the energy and oxygen they need, while at the same time carrying away the waste products.
