12 month old with Enlarged Heart (Dilated Cardiomyopathy)
Hello there I am posting here if I could get any information about my dogs problem witch is Enlarged Heart (Dilated Cardiomyopathy).
There is alot of stuff on the internet to read about, but I have not yet found a single link on a dog that would have such severe symphons such early in his life.
He is 12months old , and 3 days ago I had to rush him to the vet since he was coughing really baddly , which was the result of excesive water in his lungs. The doctors did everything they could and well gave me a milion of medicine for me to feed the dog with.
I would just like to know abit more about the disease in a dog that just came out of his puppy months.
Some information about his heart : it was around 220 beats per minute , with around 45-50 breaths per minute ( while sleeping )when we got him home and started treating, it slowed down to 190 beats per minute to around 27 breaths per minute while sleeping.
So any extra info I could get would be helpfull.
