The bad news of the day was that while we were playing at the beach, LT was at the vet for follow up exam, xrays, and bloodwork as he has not been doing too well. He is lethargic, won't eat barely anything (besides chicken), pees on himself and my floors frequently, and just isn't a happy dog. The vet took another xray and now his heart is enlarged even more than 2 months ago, his lungs don't look much better despite all the medications and his murmur sounds 3X worse! Poor little guy. She is shocked at how fast his condition is progressing and she isnt quite sure how to treat him since we don't know the exact cause of his heart failure. She is recommending we take him to a canine cardiologist who can do an echocardiogram and make some suggestions for his care based more on knowing what the actual cause is. The first appointment I could get with the cardiologist is next Tuesday, but my vet is going to call me back tomorrow and if she thinks he needs to be seen sooner they will squeeze him in. Poor LT :( We will do whatever we can to keep him happy and sort of healthy, but I know we are on the downhill of this battle and the end is probably nearing faster than we want it. We are hoping we can get him feeling slightly better and eating more so he can at least enjoy the rest of his life.
So my Monday was a roller coaster or really fun times and really bad news. At least you get to see all the photos of the good part of my day and hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I do. I think her smile says it all.
