I have an 11 lb poodle
, almost 15 years old. She has had trachea collapse for a few years. Now, we have discovered also that she has a very enlarged heart. She has been coughing constantly at times...different from the trachea collapse cough, choke and gag. There is not any fluid in her lungs...just had an x-ray. The vet tells me she will get congestive heart failure and at that time, will start medication. From what I have seen...congestive heart failure in my father's case...very uncomfortable.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the poodle's name?
Customer: Misty...rescue who was very ill when we got her at 2 years from a puppy mill that had tossed her out, bleeding
from both ends...a shelter picked her up. She is the sweetest, dearest girl ever! Washes her face with her paw
. Never caused a moment's trouble. I also rescued two Bichon later.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Misty?
Customer: No, he has seen her since we got her 12 years ago at age 2.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
