447939 tn?1235061943 hi guys, my friends father recently passed away, the coroner has said he had heart disease, both main valves were blocked and cut off the oxygen supply, he was 67 and walked his dogs approx 10 miles a day up until the day he died. his only symptoms were mild pain after eating or drinking wine but the pain was relieved by burping!!! he had been treated for high blood pressure from an early age which was under control.
Avatar f tn I'm afraid I don't know a great deal about kidney disease in dogs. But there have been a number of very informative posts on here over the past few years....I'll see if I can hunt any down that might help you, and post back.
Avatar m tn Just get this dog to the vet ASAP. This is an emergency situation. Why would you wait? Labored breathing and fluid buildup in lungs needs immediate medical attention. Not to scare you or think the worst, but in reality often when these signs are present with heart disease, then it's already in the late stages of heart failure and your dog could go into arrest at ANY time. Hopefully in your case it won't be the heart and something else more manageablel and treatable.
Avatar n tn I wrote last week about my dog, Lucy, who is 11 and is having trouble with choking. Well, she had x-rays and it's what I was afraid of. She has heart disease. Her heart is enlarged and she has some fluid in her lungs. The vet gave me Lasix and I'm going to also put her on Vetmedin. Anyone have any experience with these meds and, if so, how did they work?
Avatar n tn So if they go out in the garden they could catch it, its called french heart worm and its a parasite that gets in to the dogs heart and causes loads of problems including diarrhoea and foaming at the mouth. my dogs had it but i caught it early so i was lucky. my dogs are now on a spot on called advocate which is brilliant as it spots most parasites. Get them check for it its better to be safe than sorry.

1200240 tn?1289339687 My hubby has heart disease.He went along to the GP yesterday and he is refering him back to the consultant for further investigation as he has been coming over very poorly and his pulse was low. The GP told him the consultant will probably tell him he's to have a heart bypass which is worrying him now. Today he came over bad in himself as he has been doing quite a lot, he seems a shadow of his normal self.He gets so fatigued and feels very ill in himself.

Avatar n tn My reply to her is below, if it needs to be put up again. Dear Dorothy, Have you gone through the other posts on the forum? There is a lot of very good advice in the thread. The feeding is the toughest bit of this disease- she will lose appetite as the disease progresses...(what's her name?). Even if she is not eating much, please make sure she is well hydrated and that she does not have acidity.
Avatar f tn Welcome...What I have found with Heart Disease, is it takes a while to get the medications adjusted just right......I personally would try just a combination of Enapril AND Lasix...The lasix are very important for fluid accumulation which causes the shortness of breath... I also agree LMB, If you haven't done this already, try some homecooked dishes or high quality canned food.....It is much more appealing..... I wish you luck....
Avatar m tn I would absolutely take your dog to see the vet as soon as possible, as this is quite a complex drug which must only be given to dogs with properly diagnosed heart fallure. It should not be given to dogs under 6 months of age, to pregnant or lactating dogs and certain forms of cardiac disease.
Avatar m tn Could you recommend something I can give her to help ease her symptoms. It is just breaking my heart to see her suffer like this. Her symptoms are panting, frequent drinking water, frequent urinating, large belly and loss of eyesight. I would appreciate any help with this. Thank you so much.
Avatar f tn Dear Mzbethea, It is difficult to speculate, and I can't, about the exact reason for your dog's unfortunate death. I will say this: you are right, the diarrheal disease caused by the Parvovirus is usually quite evident. Dogs with "parvo" usually have severe diarrhea, often vomit, do not eat, become and remain dehydrated and many die.
469720 tn?1388146349 There is a commonly held belief that heart disease falls low on the list of causes of death and disability in women. Far from the truth-the following article from the NY Times addressess some of that misperception by the public Mention the term "heart attack" and most people imagine a pudgy, middle-aged man drenched in sweat and clutching his chest. Few people seem to consider cardiovascular disease (CVD) as a woman's disease.
Avatar n tn You would probably notice dyspnea, exercise intolerance, wheezing, syncope (fainting), or other heart or pulmonary disease related symptoms it this were the case. However since approximately 10% of all domestic animals do have some form of cardiovascular disease perhaps your dog should undergo a complete cardiovascular evaluation including echocardiogram, chest X-Rays, pulse pressures and electrocardiogram.
Avatar m tn Inter vertebral Disc Disease -German Shepherd Dogs are prone to degenerative disc disease although some bloodlines appear to have a higher incidence of this problem than others. Dogs with spinal problems should never be used for breeding. Dogs producing offspring with spinal abnormalities should be spayed or neutered.
Avatar dr f tn About 5% of dogs with an endocrine or hormonal disorder called Cushing’s Disease have a variation of the disease called Atypical Cushing’s Disease. Both forms of Canine Cushing's Disease in dogs may be either pituitary or adrenal-dependent and involve a hormone called Cortisol. Some dogs with Atypical Cushing’s Disease have an abnormality in the pathway their body uses to produce sex hormones such as Estrogen and Testosterone. This is because of certain enzyme deficiencies in these dogs.
Avatar n tn t say what is exactly whats wrong with the heart, it could have fluid around the pericardium (the sack around the heart) lots of small breed dogs develop mitral Valve Disease, this is where the valve leaflets of the heart don't seal because of wear and tear, large breeds like your Sheepdog have problems with dilated cardiomyopathy where the heart muscle becomes enlarged and out of shape, and unable to function. I hope this eases your mind?
20701913 tn?1504101846 I am truly sorry for your hard times you are experiencing with your 11 year old baby. I completely understand and hope for the best for you and Navaeh. don't give up on her. Take her to the vet, but make sure they just help her manage it - kidney disease, which is also known as renal disease. I don't think there is a cure for it. Whatever you do, do not let vet prescribe her any kind of Baytril - injection or tablet.
328799 tn?1276565732 feeling of unreality like im in a constant dream and everything looks fake, sweating , tremors, fear of dying/doom, rare crying spells, nausea/gagging, trouble consitrating, racing heart, switching body temperatures.
1315420 tn?1344299361 heart catherization at hospital. no heart disease.
Avatar f tn One of the doctors on med help stated maybe the seizures are not even related to her kidney disease but could be a brain lesion. Has anyone had their dogs exhibit these behaviors and have they had seizures with renal failure. Im waiting for blood work results to come back in the morning. It is ironic the vet thought she looked pretty good and then when we came home four hours later she had a seizure. Im frightened and heartbroken .
