just again to keep you updated. the specialist came back from ucd and thought that stanleys heart was slightly enlarged so he had a heart scan yesterday.
they detected an abnormality that one of the sides/arteries was leaking backwards but fintan feels that this is because is heart is working so hard to fight his lung infection. when his lung infection is cleared, his heart can be rescanned and fintan feels that it will have returned to normal. So its an abnormality but something that hopefully wont cause too much trouble at this stage. again its so unusual and proves how special stanley is !
His EFS is completely a seperate issue and we just have to monitor that closely. we had been bringing him out every day for 10/15 mins and he seemed to be getting better so just going to continue that to see how it improves. There is nothing really that can be done for it. when his infection etc clears up and neutering him might help it. That being said he is still a very happy puppy thanks again

There are medications, but it sounds like you wouldn't really currently have any reason to use them --better to see how he does.
I was in with Fintan yesterday, with two of mine -- he mentioned seeing someone off the board so am sure that was you!
