    As you may remember my old girl icey has a grade 5 heart murmer. Took kavik in to vet today as he cut his foot on some metal on a walk :(. whilst there i asked if the vet would check icey over  as she has been having little coughs when out on walks & sounding a bit chesty when she tries to have a run around  as possibly needs medication for fluid build up . He  listened to her heart & checked her groin pulse which was ok, also looked at her gums & said they were pale so is going to chat to iceys usual vet to discuss her condition & look at x-rays again to see what to do next. will hear from them monday hopefully, so not great news but to be expected i guess.

    She seems to cough occasionally when out on a walk or wandering around house but its only the odd 1 cough then will not do it for a day , so don’t think its a severe cough but i have been hearing it lately so let vet know .

    Not all is lost yet sukasud the cough is her heart maybe she just needs meds for the anemia, some old dogs like people suffer from anemia here’s hoping thats all it is

    Thanx everyone, no coughs today , still loves her tennis ball to chew on, she still thinks shes a young lass i think  😉

    saw vet tonight, ice has lost some weight, can feel hip bones, ribs easily. No medication at present required as not coughing enough to need it. He said she has a slow pulse  it was 80 bpm, but i thought that was a normal amount  for an adult dog.  ???
