JOYFUL GRACE UPDATE
Click here: Syncope | Dogs | Vetstream
It stresses her to go to the vet, but she had to go. One of our wonderful vets at Acredale Animal Hospital in Virginia Beach, gently examined her. Our vet could hear some crackling when listening to Joyful's heart. Her heart murmur has increased to a 5+ out of 6. The good news is that she has no cardiac arrhythmia (where the heart can't beat in a steady rhythm). Click here: Canine Cardiac Arrhythmia Joyful will go on three meds now to help her heart. She will be rechecked in a week. We will keep her vet visits to as few as we can do for her since they stress her so much, but we still have to give her the care she needs-- and we will!
