Avatar f tn As seen the causes of panting in dogs are various. Make sure you are able to promptly recognize signs of trouble before they worsen leading to further complications. Always seek your vet's advice when in doubt. https://suite101.
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 f tn the vet told us whatever we were doing to continue doing it that Shady was in good health. On Oct. 15th my husband let the dogs out of the garage to go to the bathroom then he got the bowls put dry food in them & brought them in the house to prepare. We add cooked brown rice (with carrots & peas) and a little canned food. Shady did not come back in the garage. She loved to eat so this was very unusual.
Avatar n tn Infarcts (blood clotting leading to lack of circulation in part of the brain) occur in some dogs. If the damage to the brain is minimal then recovery may occur quickly. If the damage is severe, recovery may not occur at all. I do not know the incidence of infarcts affecting the brain in dogs but I think it is pretty low. Even when dogs do not recover fully from peripheral vestibular syndrome they normally have a good life.
Avatar n tn She had increased drinking while she was still indoors in the air conditioning. Increased drinking can be signs of over heating of course, but it is also caused by diabetes, hyperadrenocorticism, kidney disease, pyometra, toxin ingestion and more. I am sorry that I cannot be more definitive about her cause of death. The only way to be truly definitive would be to have your dog necropsied (animal autopsy).

At all ages, more women than men die of stroke. Use of birth control pills and pregnancy pose special stroke risks for women.

In the US alone there are about 700,000+ US citizens who have a stroke and that is a scary number. Do you know why a person gets a stroke?

4326536 tn?1352842756 She was one of four little dogs. We took them for a walk in the morning 10am, fed them and then relaxed most of the day. Then about 6pm fed them again. Madison was outside peeing/pooping. She came in to eat and I witnessed her eating. Everything seemed normal. So I went to the other room. About an hour later I passed out tiny treats for them. Once I gave Madison her treat she went to her little bed to eat it. She always got hers first since she was the alpha.

Avatar f tn In this approach I would recommend x-rays and an echocardiogram (an ultrasound of the heart). I think in your case this would probably be a better approach. This way you can know exactly what is causing the murmur and if you need to treat it. I would probably start by having another discussion with your current veterinarian and letting them know you would feel more comfortable with more information. Ask them if they are comfortable interpreting an echocardiogram.
