Joey has never coughed, it is the panting he did but only when he was
5 months old and then put on the heart meds stoppd that but he looked
very unhealthy. When he was checked a year later he was taken off the
meds and given a clean bill of health for the heart disease. He really
developed heart disease at 9 years of age and has gotten benazepril
since then and his heart disease is progessing very slowly.
He is losing weight though and recently has starting vomiting one or two
times a week. He also was diagnosed with eary CRF about a year ago and
my vet wanted me to give him fluids 3 times a week, but he acts like I'm
killing him so I have not done that. I know his kidney disease has
progressed and the vomiting is partly from that because sometimes its
just foam which goes along with CRF. BUT he never, ever vomited in his
whole life so I will be taking him in to get that checked out because
sometimes it is his food. His weight loss over the last few years has
me a bit worried, he has gone from 10 pounds 5 or 6 years ago to just a
little over 8 pounds now. I'm scared what she is going to say about his
CRF, with his heart disease fluids are tricky so I have to be careful
but advanced kidney disease sometimes requires alot of fluids, Fred get
150cc a day.
We discovered Joey's HCM because he developed a heart murmur and we did
an ultra sound and saw the slight thickening of the left side. His
murmur has stayed the same for the last 3 years.
From my experience, Joey's attacks could be asthma. Does he hunch way
and get his neck way out when he's coughing. How long does coughing
last? Frankie's are always 10-15 minutes.
