So elizabeth was back at the vets yesterday for a review (14 days of taking fortekur and prilactone.)
She has been diagnosed with MVD and suffering with early stages of CHF.
I saw a different vet this time as previous vet was only Locum.
Recently- say 3 days ago elizabeth has started wheezing a lot and panting more regularly, a week after taking her meds she waa like a different dog, running on walks etc. now she is wheezing and panting on her walks after 5 mins. I dont understand, how can things be on a downwards spiral so quickly when a week ago she was 'loving life.'
the vet was not overly concerned but admitted there was effort with her breathing.
Someone on here mentioned vetmadin- i mentioned this to my vet whom said this is just an expensive drug, the prilactone is just as good??
can anyone offer me some advise, i am doing everything by the book; cut her food down, raised her bowls, regular walks. Shes also lost a bag of sugar in weight (intentionally- she was overweight!)
Shes also drinking more, is this a side effect of the meds? The vet has asked me to record daily how much she is drinking over 10 days then decide if blood tests are required.
feeling very sad at the mo, so worried about my best friend- can anyone shed some light?
p.s title was meant to say MVD- sorry!
