7644393 tn?1392931689 There could have been underlying health or organ issues you just were not aware of. It could have been a heart attack or stroke possibly. I had a relatively young Sheltie years ago that was fine when I left for work. Ate her breakfast, jumping around, no indication anything was amiss. Came home to find her down and in shock. Rushed her to the Vet but she passed. I did have a necropsy done and she had a tumor that ruptured. The Vet and I were both surprised.
Avatar m tn His white cell count was elevated but not to any extent to raise alarm. Yesterday, he showed some signs of improvement in the morning. As the day went on he took a sudden turn for worse and couldn't drink when water was brought to him. My husband took him to the vet right away and within an hour he had gone in to cardiac arrest and died. Unsuccessful attempts were made to revive him. I was advised no way to know what happened without a necropsy.
Avatar n tn In my case it was more a burning sensation in the center of my chest. I could also feel it radiate up to my jaw and in my arms. I was never really short of breath, but I was nauseated and sweating. The last time I was also shaking. I knew someting was wrong. At times even now I have a strange tingling in my upper back between my shoulder blades. Have you had any discomfort of this type?
Avatar f tn Due to injuries from a dog attack and dental work he has undergone 3 surgeries in 4 months. My previous vet failed to detect the heart murmur and the kidney failure was missed as well in spite of the blood work done. He is seeing another vet . It has been 3 weeks since his last surgery and he has been on the Epakitin for 8 days . At last weighing he was at 9.6 lbs. he may be less now. He gets 2 scoops with food twice a day. His energy level has picked up. He can walk a few blocks now .

Avatar f tn With your family history, I would also definitely advice you to have a Fasting Lipogram done (bloodtest to check you for signs of familial hypercholectorolemia) and to NOT smoke, eat healthy and exercise.
Avatar f tn Didn't sound like it. Always hard to lose them. So sorry.
Avatar m tn Sounds like afib given his age and the amount of running he has done. He needs to see an electrophysiologist so that he can be monitored during his runs or whenever he has the episodes. Best wishes for getting a handle on his sudden fatigue.
Avatar m tn Next time would go to the emergency room where they can do labs and EKG. Cardiac enzymes from a heart attack do not show up till 48-72 hrs after a heart attack so they will need to redo the labs then. Many times heart attacks and strokes are caused from the same thing (clots.

1402901 tn?1283134912 Expect and accept that regular monitoring and less frequently, medication changes, are a normal and expected part of managing heart disease. Your dog can expect good quality of life well into congestive heart failure should that occur (defined as fluid accumulations, particularly in lungs as heart becomes inefficient) if you ensure that the little things are done at the right time. Your doctor is best situated to advise you in this regard.
10218090 tn?1408580560 No headache, diarrhea, heart attack, anxiety, impatience or struggle. His physical strength, heart rate, breathing rate got weaker and weaker. Did not respond to revitalization procedures. Cookie died peacefully. Cookie and his parents are from China. The question: Exactly what type of poison? What is the name of the compound? Any hint will be greatly appreciated!
Avatar f tn It is difficult of course to say what happened but statistically speaking, sudden death in a senior dog is most commonly a heart attack. In your case however, the symptoms you are describing, and with your dog being part shepherd I worry about a tumor on the spleen known as a hemangiosarcoma. These tumors can develop and not show any signs for months and then one day they rupture and internal bleeding occurs. Often the dog then passes away from internal blood loss within 12 hours.
Avatar f tn hey sorry to hear about thsi situation, my 14 years old female jack russell Jetta just died this afternoon of congestive heart failure or maybe heart attack im still in shock this is the worst thing ever shes like my child and been through everything half of my 25 year old life actually more. you would have to give a little more information but the best i can help my opinion for my situation.I was just posting on here a couple days ago for help.
Avatar f tn The vet said that is where the fluid goes when dealing with the left side of the heart. I suppose that means when dealing with the right side of the heart, it accumulates around the heart and lungs. I hope your dog is doing better.

Avatar m tn There would be no external signs of heart attack and the only way to establish the condition of the heart is through autopsy. When my Mother was admitted to emergency, she had no chest pains, no prior problems, and was just short of breath. They told me to return in the morning. When I arrived, they informed me that she had passed away in the night. They assured me before I went home that there was nothing wrong with her heart.
Avatar n tn It is a sign of a warning. Being overweight you have much higher standing risk factors. You should lose weight to decrease the risk for heart disease. Use a body mass indicator. Best luck to you! http://www.nhlbisupport.
Avatar m tn 200 ounces per pound of body weight. It takes 250 pounds of white chocolate to cause signs of poisoning in a 20-pound dog, 125 pounds for a 10-pound dog. Milk chocolate: 1 ounce per pound of body weight. Approximately one pound of milk chocolate is poisonous to a 20-pound dog; one-half pound for a 10-pound dog. The average chocolate bar contains 2 to 3 ounces of milk chocolate. It would take 2-3 candy bars to poison a 10 pound dog. Semi-sweet chocolate has a similar toxic level.
1508316 tn?1290065376 If your female dog is bleeding from her vulva, it is likely she is still in heat and not pregnant. Dogs in heat may show signs of licking to clean themselves and occasionally excess drinking, etc occurs as well. Checking with your vet would help to determined this accurately so you are 100% sure about whether or not your dog is or is not pregnant.
