My dad took me to the vet today to get my annual echocardiogram done. I have a heart murmur that's being treated with medication but I have to get these echocardiograms done to see if there's been any worrying changes. Well today's results show that I still have a moderately enlarged left atrium that is quite stable. However, there has been a slight progression of the left ventricular size. Other than that, there were no arrhythmias detected and my heart rate was normal.
The vet was happy with the results but I'll have to come back and redo the echocardiogram in 6 to 8 months. Until then it's the usual diet of medication twice a day, CoQ10 and a heart support supplement. We sure are going through a few "pill pockets" eh dad?
Come on dad, let's go for a quick walk, Oooowww...that bald spot under my right front leg sure feels the breeze. So glad that it'll be above 50 degrees this weekend.
