I am minding Molly who has a heart problem and is on a dose…

Customer Question
I am minding Molly...

I am minding Molly who has a heart problem and is on a dose of 1.5mg Vetmedin twice a day. She has been going well for 2 weeks, just showing normal symptoms, but today she is poorly. No appetite, not going to toilet and I think she just fell from the lounge while getting down. She was initiallyunable to stand, but after a few minutes was able to move slowly. She is now sitting outside in the fresh air, but not interested in eating her treat that she usually gobbles down. her tummy is extended and feels full of fluid + I am worried that I may not have given her last nights dose of Vetmedin.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

She is an 11 year old King Charles Spaniel.

When was the last time that Molly was examined by a vet?

Any coughing?

Is she under the care of a cardiologist?
