Misha was diagnosed with MVD on 9/18/2007. He is currently asymptomatic. I just saw that Pat indicated treatment as soon as heart size increased. I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on this since Misha also has renal insufficiency currently. See below for official vet report:
Echocardiogram: There is evidence of mildly progressive disease based on a mild increase in left atrium size, which is considered mildly enlarged. The mitral valve was moderately thickened consistent with endocardiosis. There is a mild eccentric jet of mitral regurgitation. Normal aorta, right atrium, right ventricle and pulmonary artery. The tricuspid valve is thickened with a mild eccentric jet of tricuspid regurgitation without evidence of significant PH. Normal left ventricular systolic function. Delayed left ventricular relaxation without an increase in filling pressure.
ECG: Sinus arrhythmia with a wandering pacemaker and heart rate ranging from 50-120bpm.
Prognosis: Misha's cardiac disease is mild and currently well compensated...
