Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, this is Dr. Sara. This sounds concerning. Does she have a heart condition? What medications were being used?
What was the powder and liquid? What did your vet diagnose?
Ok, I see. In an older pet, the most likely cause would be heart disease but some older dogs can have really old lungs and have something like a person with COPD. If it is her heart, there may be medications to help. So, one option would be to have her examined and have some xrays taken or maybe an ultrasound of her heart. My concern is that if it is her heart, she could have a heart attack at any time.
A house call vet would be a good option for an exam, but any testing would probably have to be done at a veterinary office/hospital.
Did you google house call vets near me?
to narrow it down, you could call your vet or another one in the area and see if they know of or keep a listo of house call vets. Many hospitals do.
ultrasound is done awake, and usually the room is kept very calm and dark, so little stress
Ohhh, sorry to hear that. Agreed, if you aren't getting what you want or need from someone, there are other veterinarians to talk to. Best of luck! Have a good day.
