View Full Version : Update on Charlie

1st May 2010, 11:43 AM
Today we took Charlie back to the vets again because his breathing was worrying us, normally the vets isnt open on Saturdays apart from Emergencys so thankfully we got an emergency appointment. The last time we went there was last Friday on the 23rd when we was diagnosed with an enlarged heart. The vet said today that he has got a chest infection which is making his breathing worst then it would be normally and with his bad heart its not good. He's taken Charlie in for today to keep an eye on him. We have to ring the vets up at 3:30pm today to see how he is. The vet said that he wants to put him on heart tablets because the tablets he was on before are steriods and water tablets. His coughing has come back again aswell because of the chest infection.
Its been a very exhausting week or so.... :(

Just got home with Charlie we have to take him back on Wednesday for a check up. He's slightly better, at the moment he's sleeping which i havnt seen him do for about a week, he's been put on tablets for his chest infection, the vet said he'll probably be better in a few days because it'll take a few days to work. He's still breathing a bit fast but he's just started the medication. I'll update you again soon, thank you for being so nice :l*v:

Oh poor little thing. Please pass on a gentle kiss from me. Chicken soup is good at times like this. Takes less effort to digest.

At the moment he's in his bed sleeping because he hasnt had much sleep for the past week or so because of the infection and breathing. At least now he's sleeping in his bed because he never was before, and his breathing is slightly better, not so heavy.
Thanks for the support :l*v:
