    Unhappy

    Thanks everyone, its not exactley good news though, the vets done the chest xray and they said that his heart is enlarged so now he has to be put on medication, we're going back to the vets in 2 weeks to see how he is doing. Vet said not to take him on walks till the cough has gone and till we go back to the vets for check up, he's been put on steroids which she said may make him put on weight and he may get thirsty a lot more and wee a lot more...
    He has to take 2 tablets a day.
    Its quite a lot to take in and im still getting over the shock of it, i really didnt think it was gonna be an enlarged heart, i thought it was gonna be his lungs or something like that.
    Also i just want to say thank you to everyone who was so nice to me and offering to take me to the vets

    At the moment he's asleep downstairs he's still a bit woosy from the injection

    Thumbs down

    So sorry to read about Charlie Charlotte, at least you know what his problem is now and with medication his cough will improve. My Jasper has the same problem, he has been on medication since January 2009 and this has greatly reduced his cough and with regular check ups, we went quite a lot initially because they had to adjust the Frusimide tablet to remove the fluid from around his heart and this tablet was decreased in amount. We go about once in 3 months for checks and more medication, last time this week. I know it is a shock at first as I felt but with regular check ups I am sure Charlie will be fine, sending you hugs.

    Hi Charlotte. I'm sorry I have only just seen this thread. Poor little fella and it must be a shock for you You've done your best and he should be feeling a lot better once the pills start working.

    Thank-you, you've all really helped me get through this, the coughing started a few months ago i just wish we had gone to the vets earlier about it. I know i cant blame myself but i still kind of do, you've all been a great support
