Sorry for rambling, but I need to let off some steam
I seem to be beating a never ending track to my vet at the moment.
Bosco who has SM, had a vestibular episode two weeks ago while I was on holiday. Luckily, after an overnight stay at the vets and investigations, all seems to be ok for him again - in as much as it can be.
Trapper has been battling CHF since last June and has been holding his own for most of the time, with the occasional scare here and there. For the last couple of days he has had a bad cough (worse than his normal one) and what sounds like congestion that he cant get rid of. He is now in an oxygen chamber at the vets, with another overnight stay on the cards. She thinks he might have a chest infection which has been making breathing hard for him. She couldn't hear his heart properly because his chest was so bad I don't know about anyone else that has a dog with an illness that they are not going to recover from, I am so fed up of the constant worry, of not wanting to run to the vet for every little thing, but having to go frequently for even basic check ups. Now I'm kicking myself for not taking Trapper in yesterday. We increased his frusomide in the hopes that it would help, but it didn't.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and maybe you could keep my lovely Trapper in your thoughts while he hopefully recovers from this.
