Are there two different types of Cardiomyopathy? How does a vet know the difference? I see you are not to give Vetmedin for one kind.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog? Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: She is 9.5 yrs. old, a Pom/Chi, 7.2 lbs.. She was diagnosed in Mar. 2015 with an enlarged heart & a grade 3 heart murmu . She is now a grade 4 murmur, her heart has enlarged more, both right & left ventricles & her liver is slightly enlarged. My vet put her on eneparil, fluromide & 1.25 grams of Vetmedin every 12 hrs. I have not started her on Vetmedin yet. Is there a chance it could kill her?
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Munchkin (Munchie)😍
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: She cough' s a little maybe 1x a day. Has a rapid heart beat & seems a bit irregular to me. The vets have never said anything about that. Her appetite is great...always hungry, bowel movements are normal 2x's a day, And urinates 4/5 times a day. Doesn't appear to be drinking too much. Seems happy & still likes to go for walks & play
JA: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No... Why would I? She is not limping.
