    Glad you have got an appointment so quick. Look at the two of us. You at the Cardioligist and Harley and Me for an MRI.

    Oh Brian how awful to find out like that, it has certainly been a rotten week.

    Sins and myself were only saying the other night how medication for heart
    problems has improved, although I am sure you would rather not read that
    this now does not have to be a death sentence. My Cassie lived for several
    years with MVD well managed on tablets. This was not the case several
    years ago and many of my Cavaliers died soon after diagnosis.

    Sending hugs to you all.

    Hello Brian

    So sorry to read your news about Daisy- unfortunately its kind of a given these days that a Cavalier will have SM or a Murmor and there are quite a large percentage that have both so you aren't alone

    For a start the Cardiologist may just liten to her heart and grade the murmor and feel no further action is needed at this point.
    As you know murmors don't require medication so fingers crossed its just a low grade murmor that will just need monitoring over time.
    At the same time if they listened to Daisys heart before she went under for her GA and she was slightly stressed or nervous about her situation this could make the murmor sound worse than it actually is so the Cardio may not grade very highly.
    Things you can give Daisy in these situations is Vitamin E and Co-Enzye Q10 which are both naturaal blood thinners available at any health shop or chemist.


    As you may know Charlie is under close supervision with his Grade 6 murmor that the Cardio said is probably worse than most grade 6's but there isn't a Grade 7 so we can't have that BUT he doesn't need any meds and he lives perfectly normally.

    Best you can do for her on the heart front is get her weight at a slightly lean state and see what the Cardio says xx

    Sorry again Brian and gentle hugs for the Dangerous Daisy!!!
