My 12 and a half year old boy has a grade three heart murmur and is in CHF. Currently he is taking Pimobendan, Lasix and Spironolactone. I know all we can do is try to keep him comfortable at this point and we’re trying our best to do just that, trying to keep the fluid off so he can breathe better. He’s hanging in there and his appetite is still really good as well. My issue is the lady who runs the rescue where we adopted him thinks we aren’t doing enough. She said I to get him in with a cardiologist ASAP, but there aren’t any in the area I am in. So she is really angry with me and it’s not helping any. She even wanted to call my vet herself because she thinks he doesn’t know what he’s doing and says the meds he put my boy on are only the preliminary meds! Anyway I am so distraught, feeling like I’m not doing the best for my baby! He’s the fourth doberman I’ve had and the only one who has had DCM/CHF. The other three were age 13, 14 and 12 when they passed so it’s not like I haven’t taken the best care of them that I can. I’m not bragging because I know it’s a crap shoot with dogs who are prone to many health issues but we’ve definitely been lucky to have them all live to be seniors. Anyway I’m just looking for advice since I don’t have much experience with DCM/CHF. Do you guys think I should push the vet for more meds or have him send his info to the state vet school and see if they recommend more meds? I’m just at a loss and have been incredibly stressed. I am getting over a cold so the stress has definitely gotten to me. So, any tips, encouragement, etc are greatly appreciated.
