MVD - Bradley Now Has It
I took Brad to the vets yesterday for a sore eye, and came out with the news that he has a Grade 3 murmur and that they'd like to do an EGC and or X-Ray when he goes in for a dental in a couple of weeks.
Jenny the vet told me she'd just returned from a seminar on MVD and it is now recommended to start treatment BEFORE symptoms occur. I know it used to be the thing to wait for the coughing to start, or other symptoms.
So, it looks as if Bradley will be started on Fortekor after his X-Rays.
I know I was expecting it, but no-one knows how old Bradley is, so it maybe means that he is about 6 or 7 y/o. Jennifer is determined his is 5 and no-one will convince her otherwise .
He is very active though and no coughing at the mo'.
