Default cardiologist for Chico

Chico was found with a heart murmur on his last Vet visit, he has a cardiologist appt this coming Weds (8/7). I was told it was a 2 out of 6 heart murmur and has had a temperature for a while now. I am told it will be possible to have several tests run on Chico this Weds to find the cause/recommendations. anywhere from $500 to 800..... YIKES.... but I will get the tests if the Vet says it will help evaluate him.

I know I have had Chis with heart murmurs that have lived a long life. Does anyone know the medicines? that he might be put on? or do they give medicine for heart murmurs??? has anyone been to a Cardiologist before? what happened??

What kind of questions should I ask the Cardiologist?

I have no advice (sorry..) but I just want to offer prayers for Chico and healing thoughts, and hope that the tests and future treatment go smoothly.

Jan, I have no suggestions on meds or questions for the cardiologist but I just wanted to send good wishes for Chico. You are both in my thoughts and I hope that the cardiologist has some answers for you

Thank you...... he can use all the prayers you can give..... he has such poor Genes to have come from a 'well known' breeder

I wanted to send well wishes. I don't have any personal experience but I had a friend whose dog had a murmur and lived, on pills, perfectly healthy until he was 13 (and it was a big dog). Died of cancer totally unrelated.

Good luck to you and Chico. Please let us know how it goes.

I know it's worrying,but the only thing we did was not let him run too much otherwise he would start coughing.His name was Chico as well.I'm sure once he's on the meds he'll be fine
