Just tonight I was reading the posts and comments about dogs with Congestive heart failure and then we took our female Bassett (a rescue) to her vet for a 2 week followup. She had been diagnosed with CHF, just 13 days ago, she was put on arthritis meds, heart meds, water pill, and an antibiotic. With a "possible diagnosis" of CHF. Come on people, putting your dog out of their pain and misery, is the best thing you can do for them. I, was trying to be selfish, thinking of only myself.
