Regarding your Vet hearing or not hearing a murmur, Petcrazyme, you have to take that with a "grain of salt". The general practitioner Vet is not "fine tuned" to the sound of murmurs. Example: Freckles-my Vet said he had a slight murmur-Cardiologist said no murmur but a "snap" which may or may not be precursor to murmur. Annie-my Vet said no murmur-Cardiologist rates her as 1+ murmur. Have not had an echo yet to verify as I keep dreaming there will be a Clinic within a day's driving-I'm a regular visitor to http://www.cavalierhealth.org/health_clinics.htm .
