Do you have an older Bedlington with a heart condition? Digger goes on Vetmedin,.Sally Brady wrote:
Just to let you know we are back from the Vets with Digger - the good news is that he is not ready to go anywhere yet - however sadly his heart has deteriorated significantly and he is getting fluid on his lungs - the mini fits are caused by Digger coughing due to the fluid which then raises his blood pressure further causing him to 'black out'.Peter my vet now feels we have to treat the heart condition and we are trying Digger on Vetmedin to hopefully lower his blood pressure - I would be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this drug or a condition like Diggers in their older dogs? My vet has said the drug scan be a bit of s trial and error as with people they don't always work but he believes Vetmedin is most likely to help. He has given me his direct number as we have started the meds today but have been told if they haven't appeared to have any effect by the weekend to call to discus so other treatment options and we are due back at the practice on March 11.
Thanks Sally, do you have a dog on Vetmedin and can give Sally some advice?
