I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy to work with you if you are still needing assistance.

How was Molly's enlarged heart diagnosed? Did she have a chest xray? Has she had an echocardiogram?

If she did have an xray, does she have fluid in her lungs?

Is she on any medications currently for her heart?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
