Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur in golden retriever

Avatar n tn I have a 7yr. old Golden Retriever who was diagnosed three years ago with a "suspected heart murmur." This has now been confirmed, and the blood test result is in the "middle range" and the vet thinks it is a leaking heart valve. The dog is showing no symptoms whatsoever, and the vet suggests that it would be a good idea to start him on Vetmedin before he begins to show symptoms.
Avatar n tn I had a 3 month old golden retriever who unexpectedly died this morning (11-30-13). He appeared somewhat lethargic last night and when waking up this morning he was panting and could hardly walk without coughing. He received his last series of shots this past monday and the doctor confirmed that he was in very good health. After rushing him to the emergency vet this morning he had an x-ray which confirmed an enlarged heart and other tests performed (coags, PTT, aPTT).
Avatar m tn My 9 year old Golden Retriever has been diagnosed with a growth (tumor) attached to her spleen and one on the heart. No surgery possible - any magical holistic treatment that would heal or make her comfortable through this process?
Avatar f tn The challenge for others in dealing with a golden retriever is to get them to be serious for a minute. The way to relate to a golden retriever is to play with them. The scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz is a golden retriever. He has a hard time taking things seriously, letting go of his role of entertaining the others. A beaver will make a workaholic tired. She's always working, mostly in the service of others. She's always supportive.
Avatar m tn A hemangiosarcoma may originate in the heart, or it may have metastasized to the heart from another location in the body. It is most commonly reported in mid to large size breeds, such as boxers, German shepherds and golden retrievers, and in older dogs – six years and older. This tumor often will go undetected until complications arise.

Avatar n tn Today our beloved Golden Retriever died suddenly, and without warning. He was 4 years old, and in seemingly perfect health. My mother was in the yard where he was running and playing happily. She turned her back on him for no more than a minute. When she turned around and approached him, he was lying on the ground without life. There were no external indications of trauma or struggle. We are very saddened by this loss, and even more so by the seemingly random nature of what happened.
Avatar m tn my 14yr old golden/husky mix was getting older.. little arthritic but in good shape.. She had been playing around all day .. ate very well and did her normal business... she was happy to see me when I got home that evening and did everything she always does... When I woke in the morning she was gone.... I am heartbroken... it must have been sudden as she was still curled up like she always sleeps and her eyes were slightly open... I've been groping for answers of some sort...
Avatar n tn My heart goes out to you and your family.I too just lost my Golden Retriever but under different circumstances.I loved my little Bailie so much-we had such a bond.Think of the fond memories you had together and that she did not suffer very long.I know words mean little but find comfort in knowing others care and share your pain.
5915818 tn?1377748240 A long haired golden retriever mix has adopted me and my family. At first i believed it was just a dog from the neighborhood just hanging around since my female dog was in heat but after about a week of him being camped out in the yard i started inspecting him further. His K9 teeth are flat, he has hidden mats and his collar was close to being in bedded into his neck. He listens well and is extremely good with other animals and kids.

Avatar m tn I am disabled and have a Therapy Dog (not Service Dog). I adopted my Golden Retriever from a local shelter in March 2005, when he was 2 yrs. old, so he is 10 1/2 now and I have had him 8 1/2 years. I had a Care Credit account for vet services but due to economy etc. my bills all are in collections and I only live on social security disability. My dog has had all his shots and meds through the same vet, who does a low-cost clinic monthly. He's current on flea/tick meds, heartworm, etc.
