Default update to Zarita

Hi! Its been weeks since I updated Zarita's heart health. I brought her to the vet for a routine check. Heart rate over 200! Too high to count. Murmur the same (can't get much worse). Vet added 2 new meds. Enalapril and Lasix.The heart rate has gone down a little (she lent me a stestoscope (spelled) and I have been watching her heart rate and respirations. Respirations are 40-44 a minute. I get a lower heart rate, cause I can't count that fast. I can count up to 35 for 15 seconds. How long this little dog can go with that fast a heart rate, neither the vet nor I can tell. She is NOT having any trouble breathing, thank goodness, and no lung congestion.

Just your good thoughts please.

I have no experience with heart problems in dogs, but like the others will be thinking of you and Zarita.

I was hoping you would say its only fast when shes at the vet thinking maybe shes stressed. Do you try and take it when she is sleeping and resting? I wouldn't even know how to measure that every day I truly wish you luck on this. Don't stress maybe the meds will help. Thank god no other issues for you. Keep us posted.
