Update on Romeo

I went to a few different vets to get multiple opinions on what was going on. The first vet that neutered him brought him out to me terrified saying "I can never put this dog under anesthesia ever again". I decided I was never going back to him because he had the nerve to continue with the surgery when he knew how bad his heart murmur was. I decided to go back to a vet I had taken my other dogs to in the past. She was very nice and after listening to the murmur more, rated it a 5 out 6, 6 being the worst. She tried medication but it was making him worse after a few months to the point he wanted to run around more and the more he did, the more episodes he had. She said that I could get an ultrasound but with him not being able to have anesthesia, he can't have surgery. I've decided to monitor his activity and he has been great! Every so often he will have an episode but not too often. puppy

Wow...I just realized it's been 2 years since you posted. I'm glad Romeo seems to be doing ok. With a 5 out of 6 heart murmur, that's pretty serious especially for such a young dog. I hope he continues to do well way to go
