    Default Charlie's not too well

    We'r a little concerned this evening for Charlie, our 12 year old, he's just not been his self at all since around tea time, quite lethargic....but at the same time not really wanting to sit or lie down....if that makes sense, he's been really clingy tonight, on my lap for most of the evening, which is not his style....he enjoys cuddles and attention, but is normally not a lap dog, he prefers just to lie near you, and panting quite a lot, which again is out of the norm, as he has a Murmor, we'v allready spoke to the emergency on call vet, and have been instructed to monitor him overnight, and go in 1st thing in the morning for a check, however if he gets worse overnight we'v to get straight back in touch and take it from there, im hoping that it's just a wee fluctuation, and with a little tweek of his meds he'l settle back to normal, this is what the vet was talking about anyway, but at the same time we'r a little fraght at the minute, 101 things start to go thru your head, but we'l have a better idea in the morning, and he's spending the night on our bed so we can keep a close eye on him

    I hope he's doing okay and they can tweak his meds in the morning and get him all fixed up.

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for your good wishes, we had Charlie at the Vets this morning, and she was content that his heart hasn't changed and is still stable,so no change on his dose of Vetmedin, but she detected some fluid in his lungs, so his dosage or Prilactone has been increased to try and help disperse it, and we'v to monitor him closely, and he's going back in on Monday for another check to see how he's doing,or sooner if needed, he seems a little more comfortable today, not quite as panty, and definately more settled, so hopefully this will help settle him again

    That sounds like a more positive report back -- thanks for caring for him so well!

    Oh Ryan my stomach turned over when I read the title...so pleased he is ok though and just needed a tweak of his meds. It sounds like he is more comfortable today - they always let you know when things aren't right.


    I hope he is good over the weekend and things go well on Monday.

    Special hugs for Charlie - and for you all.

    I'm relieved to hear Charlie is seeming better.It is a fright when they're not well.
