View Full Version : 16 weeks old, murmur free?

4th April 2006, 05:40 PM
Hello everyone,
Well Riley is just about 16 weeks old now. We go to the vet on Friday for vaccs. and to have his heart listened to. I really hope his murmur is going away, or even gone. I can't bear to hear that it is worse, because that will mean some kind of congenital heart defect and we just can't stand to think of what that would do to his quality of life.
We are hoping for good news, if you don't mind could you think some positive thoughts for us? We really want our boy to be with us for a long time. We love this little guy to pieces, he's just our "baby boy" and we don't want to lose him.
Thanks everyone.

Also as many pups will keep showing a murmur til 6 months or so, I wouldn't get too worried if it is still there. He still has a while for it to disappear on its own. :)

Fingers and toes crossed. We will be thinking of you. He sure is a little cutie.

Everything crossed here for you too - the boys will put their paws together at bedtime too.

As Karlin says, there's still time for him to grow out of a puppy murmur, so try not to be too worried if they can still hear something - although we know that will be hard. We all love these wee babes so much.

Riley is so cute - enjoy him.

Sending lots of positive thoughts and ((((hugs))))

Thinking lots of positive thoughts for Riley. what a cute picture. i was thinking the same thing as Karlin and Nikki, if they still hear anything, it's way too soon to think he won't be with you for a long time. But i sure understand how you feel. good luck tomorrow.
