Congestive heart failure
I have heard my vet say hypertrophic.
My dog had a slight heart murmur and had to have an operation to remove her spleen removed. After the operation last October she developed this heart problem Initially she was prescribed Digoxin as the heartbeat was irregular. Some weeks later vetmedin was added as she had been listless and not eating well She showed great improvement but later suffered severe diarrhea which was thought to be caused by Digoxin toxicity She improved when the Digoxin was halved but twice since she has been vomiting each time improving when the Digoxin is stopped
Her heartbeat is currently irregular
Thanks so much for checking back. Our vet has ceased Digoxin but not replaced it. They wish to observe the dogs health without Digoxin.
It is now 6 days since she took Digoxin. She is no longer vomiting,
She is eating better & her poo is formed not liquid. She appears happy in herself.
The vet has asked us to report any deterioration . They will then reassess and add further medication if required.
Many thanks for your help.
Best regards Pam
