Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How did his vet diagnose his heart condition?

Was he only showing a cough before diagnosis? Any breathing issues, fainting, etc?

When you say worse, do you mean he coughs more? Is it right after he takes his medication?

Is he coughing with excitement or activity?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
