Hi.

Dr. Paul Braxzzell here.

You will be happy to know that I have diagnosed over a thousand cases of this- having provided mobile ultrasound services in Hong Kong.

How was the diagnosis made and what is the gradient?

Salle a 7-8 year old female that was rescued after someone tied her to the door of the human society. She has a very large heart dx: by chest X-ray, huge 3 or 4th degree heart murmur, on Enalapril, Vetmedin, Apoquel and Rimadyl. She needs to have a ECHO and that is next to do. I have only had her a almost two years. She’s a different dog... but my question is dosing “viagra” or the vet equivalent for her. She almost 19 lbs. we can gets medications from Canada cheaper, thus why I ask the question.

Good morning.

Sorry to reply so late

If we dont know that there is pulmonary hypertension then it does not make sense to treat with Sildenafil. The Vetmedin that she is on already works on PH also.

Good to know...ECHO here $500 to $600. Will be worth it! Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Kim
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Merry Christmas to you too!

And yes that echo will be the ticket for determining if there is any PH.

Please let me know if you have any other questions :)

And please dont forget to rate me- That is how I get paid
