    Default Checkup and heart results

    Everyone's been in to see the vet for an annual checkup, between last week and this!

    Leo's murmur is up to a 5 -- he's 9.5, but not showing any symptoms of heart disease yet, thankfully, though he has the worst SM of the group. Jaspar (9.5) has a low grade murmur. It figures the two rescue dogs of unknown background (one from the pound, one a puppy farm) have the best hearts! They are probably about 8 (Lily --barely audible murmur) and Tansy (maybe 7-9) with no murmur at all.

    Am going to try Leo on Lyrica and see how he does -- he's on the max for gabapentin, which works OK but not totally adequate for him.

    Wow! Those are really great results. Sorry Leo's SM isn't any better though. Good idea to try Lyrica.
