My husband and I are grieving labradoodle who just passed

My husband and I are grieving for our labradoodle who just passed from congestive heart failure. We thought it was under control with the medications that we were giving her (quite expensive per month) but we lost her last week. We are heartbroken.... Did we do the right thing? Should we have done more? We miss her so....

My shi tzu was diagnosed with congestive heart disease

My shi tzu was diagnosed with congestive heart disease several months ago and takes a heart and water pill everyday. He didn't seem like himself yesterday or today. Late this afternoon he collapsed and had very irregular, heavy breathing. This has continued all evening. He sits and seems to fall asleep and then falls over. He will only sleep and be still unless I'm holding him.now when he walks more than a few feet he collapses. What do I do?

My 10 year old German short hair pointer has been acting

My 10 year old German short hair pointer has been acting really strange lately. He's been staring at walls, whining, not responding to his name, restless, barking in his sleep, trouble holding his bowels, and walking in circles. He's otherwise totally healthy. The vet said he had a stomach thing a few weeks ago and gave him Sucralfate (we've since stopped it). This all happened in a matter of days. He went from like 90% to 10% and we're so confused at why he's taking such a fast turn for the worst, when he was fine just a couple weeks ago. What could it be? What can we do?

My dog was just diagnoses with a mild to moderate left leaky

my dog was just diagnoses with a mild to moderate left leaky valve. and a tricuspid insufficiency in the right. (results from an Echo this morning, prompted by a heart murmur detected on Wed). He is only 4 years old. Is a shih-tzu. And the MD said that we are to bring him back in 9-12 months for another echo. My question is (of course I am panicked, as I worship my puppy)...when I asked the MD if this will reduce longevity, he said "most likely, yes"; but does that mean- within a few months/ years? will he reach double digits? or later in life? I am so upset. And just want some clarity. Thank you.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: No. his behavior is perfectly normal. he is happy. energetic. eats and drinks well. and his blood pressure is normal/ low.JA: Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page where you can book your 1:1 with the Veterinarian. I'll share everything we've discussed.
