DCM question about Marcus
I have a DCM question. My Vet is totally clueless and useless. But, that is another story. He has a DCM Vet. She is too away to see when Marcus does things like dining on the garbage like he did last week. The new Vet put him on DCM meds 3 months ago. I am going to have him holtered in 2 weeks again. He is only 1 1/2 years old and was diagnosed before he showed any symptoms. Since he started the meds, he has put on 20 pounds....in 3 months. He is not fat. He had not put on any weight for several months, until the DCM thing came up. Then, on meds, he has not only put on a massage amount of weight, he is BIG.....like a normal Dobie. My question for those of you who know, is this a good thing? He is not the same dog. I guess that I did not know that he was ill. But, our "former" Vet should have said something when he didn't put on any weight for months when he was just a puppy in my uneducated opinion.
Am I being overly optimistic about Marcus. I will see the Vet in 2 weeks. But, I look at him now vs 3 months ago and he is not the same dog. I cannot get my arms around him in bed, because his chest is so large now.
