I took Ebony to the Cavalier Clubs Heath Screening day yesterday, as the vet detected a murmur last time I took Ebony. Well I saw the cardiologist and I don’t know if to be pleased or confused, maybe someone on here can confirm that I understood correctly what the cardiologist said to me. I am not very good at explaining things so I hope you will understand what I am trying to say.
He explained that there are two lower valves and to upper valves. He said that if the murmur is in the lower valves it is MVD, as Ebony’s murmur is in one of her upper valves she hasn’t got MVD and that is good. He said that she COULD live with this without any problems what so ever, but I will need to have a scan to confirm what he has told me. I am a bit confused, I thought a murmur is a murmur. How can it be good in any way? He also confirmed that Ebony has luxating patella. I knew this as the vet told me last year, but the vet said that she has got it in one leg the cardiologist said that she got it in both legs, and that it needs sorting as it will give her problems later on.
My head is spinning, first the murmur then the patellar in both legs. I am going to have to but my poor Ebony through two big operations? I feel awful.
