Since last Thursday, Sydney has had problems having a bowel movement. On Sunday, he was really straining to go and got a little wobbly. Yesterday, thinking it was his anal sacs, I brought him into the vet to have them expressed. Before they had a chance to do it, the vet examined him and told me he has now developed an arrhythmia and we needed to rush him to the emergency hospital where his cardiologist practices. The cardio dr. is out of town so he saw the ER doctor who confirmed the arrhythmia. (Just some background, he has MVD/CHF/PAH.
The ER is conferring with cardio dr. over the phone to decide which meds he needs. Seems like this developed within the past 2 weeks. His condition was so bad last night we thought we were going to lose him. He is resting comfortably now. It is so scary seeing his condition change so quickly. I feel like I’ve been blindsided never thinking that I was going to get that news yesterday.
Please keep Sydney in your thoughts that the new meds will help. Not sure what they are going to give him yet. Still waiting for that info.
