Sully’s cardio consult

We saw the cardiologist today and I am happy to say that he has no sign of DCM!

Report says....

Sully has normal atrial and ventricular dimensions with normal myocardial contractility and normal intra-cardiac blood flow. The ECG revealed a steady sinus rhythm (HR 97 BPM). No sign of ventricular ectopic. Based on these combined results, there is no evidence of DCM. Holter monitor pending.

Here’s Sully sporting the holter....

Woot!

Awesome... McCoy is going in the next few months for his second full cardio workup.

His first came back clear. That was an Echocardiogram, a 24 hour Holter monitoring and a full blood panel. He was three yo. His cardiologist suggested that we bing him back in 2 years.

Having had a boy who ultimately passed due to DCM (Sudden Death, not CHV), I said never again. Whatever it takes.

So Happy for you and Sully!

On a side note Sully had lost 5 pounds when he went to our normal vet a month ago, but apparently gained 2 back. I’m going to attribute it to sitting on the couch with me for a few weeks while I healed since I gained 10!
