Black and White Heart Dog Sunday

Mama calls me her heart doggy....because we are BFF's. 


Mama also says I have a very special heart because it murmurs..
I told her Mr. Bailey would probably like a girl with a heart that murmurs sweet nothings in his ear...BOL

I had my annual V-E-T visit yesterday and they did some "EX-RAYS" of my heart and lungs.
My heart was the normal size, and almost everything looked normal, but there
are some spots on my lungs that the V-E-T says may be fluid.

SO....I have to take this stuff called Lasix, that will make me go potty a bunch,  and then the spots will go away and efurrything will go back to normal.

I don't think there will be any problem, but if you could send a bit of POTP it would make Mama feel better.
Sometimes she and Daddy worry way too much about me!

From Mama:
Dory goes back to the vet after we finish this cycle of Lasix. I don't have any experience with Lasix and was wondering if any other "Staff" have any experience with it?? I know it is a diuretic, and have looked it up online...so know the side effects and such...but don't know anyone who has used it, any input would be appreciated

You are so sweet and love the one pink heart. So sorry to hear about your heart issues. My gramma had to start taking Lasix a couple months ago for water on in her lungs and she hates it. She switched to another brand which is a bit better, but she has to go to the bathroom all the time too. No fun. Hope you don't have to take it forever.

Chef Sasha said...

Beth, Sasha has a heart murmur and is on lasix regularly every other day along with 2 other medications. When she gets the lasix, she pees like crazy. I had to go back to potty pads because she doesn't always make it outside(don't tell Bilbo, she would be embarrassed). She is doing fine with it, she even occasionally pees on me when I hold her. It does help her and so far so good. I havent found any side affects from the lasix other than the peeing. The other meds she is on gives her a dry cough, which scares me and I hate it. As long as the meds are helping I will continue. I hope Dory does fine with them. Dory and Sasha have a beautiful hearts that love so much that they murmur sometimes. We are lucky Moms, but of course have to be cautious as times.

Love Anne

Chef Sasha said...

Dory, I am on the same medicine and sometimes I have to pee like crazy, but I do feel better after I take it. I hope you are doing ok and I will cross paws for you.


Loveys Sasha

p.s. Please don't tell Bilbo about the peeing thing

No input on the Lasix but will sure keep Miss Dory in my prayers!!! xoxoxo

KB Bear said...

Oh Sweet Dory. You and your mama are a wonderful pair!

I know that Lasix is used when there are heart issues to help prevent fluid from building up in the lungs. I hope it works like a charm!

Sending POTP.

Taffy said...

I'm definitely sending some POTP and doxie sun rays! No experience with Lasix here.....we do have some experience with Lasik but mom says that isn't the same thing!
