Over the weekend I checked Dressy’s heart often. Possibly even obsessively. She really never sounded right. Sometimes a bit better than other times. But not normal.
I called my vet this morning first thing. He came out to check her. Listened to her heart. Heard the same thing I did. Had me trot her out. Listened again. Said it got much worse after that short little trot. And she was already huffing and puffing.
He’s making an appointment for Dressy to go to Guelph (to the University vet clinic) for assessment. Her heart is not sounding right. He is not sure exactly what is going on, but one possibility is Atrial Fibrillation (which is serious but probably treatable).
Whatever it is, Dressy is out of action for a while. Definitely no fifty on Saturday.
