Marsha Wood 11-5-20: I took my fur baby girl to the vet today, to have X-rays done, she fell off the bed and I was afraid she broke her leg, they looked at her, and told me they would like to get pictures of her chest also, so they took X-rays of her leg and chest, her leg wasn’t broke, just a spring, but I was told my baby girl has heart murmurs and an enlarged heart, I got meds for her, but im so worried about her please pray for her

Psalm 139:5-12 (ESV)
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
9 If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
12 even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.

You’re very welcome Marsha. I have been praying for you and for her. I will need some good clear pictures of Sassy. If you can get them to me by tomorrow morning I could probably post her then. What a difficult time you’ve been through… 💗🙏Caren

Marsha Wood

Her birthday was oct 8 she turned 14 years young, idk if you can use one of those or not but I thought I would send those, my daughter took them for me, thank you
The blurred one I took sorry

Prayers for Pets
I’m sorry about your shaking. I understand. I will try to work with one of these. Tell me a little bit more about Sassy. When did she have her incident of falling off the bed?
Prayers for Pets
Did they put her on heart medication?
Ok, it was a few months back she fell off the bed, I checked her leg and she didn’t act like it hurt anywhere,, until she started limping and that’s when I took her to bet, yes she is on hart meds
Prayers for Pets
I see. What an interesting route God used to get her to the vet and discover the heart problems. So you just learned about the enlarged heart on the 2nd?
Marsha Wood
She takes carprofen 25 me for her leg I believe, and furosemide 40 my and enalapril 5 mg
All mads are every 12 hours
Prayers for Pets
Ok. Did they just put her on the heart meds last Monday?
Marsha Wood
Yes I just learned about her hart when I took her to get
Yes the day they seen her she was given the meds
Prayers for Pets
Okay, is she short of breath? At her age it’s not entirely surprising that her heart is wearing down. Did the vet give you any prognosis?
Marsha Wood
Yes
Love her hart she can’t walk to far at all unless she stops to breath for 5 or 10 minutes
Her brother passed in April with se[izures] and I was so scared she had them
Prayers for Pets
I’m sorry for your loss. That must be hard on her and you too.
Marsha Wood
It was very hard I took him to get and they put him to sleep he had a grandma seizure, she missed him so much love her hart she looked for him for days
Prayers for Pets
That’s a difficult thing to endure.
Marsha Wood
Oh honey it was the only thing keeping me going was my sassy
Prayers for Pets
Oh how very difficult. When did this happen?
I understand…
Marsha Wood
He was just laying on couch and started then he come out of it and
Wanted to go outside we went out and he done his business come back to me looking around and fell dawn and never come out of it,
Prayers for Pets
I am not a Veterinary professional I can only advise you as a friend. But I have walked through many cases of chronic heart disease especially in dogs. Depending on the state of her heart she could survive for months even years depending on her symptoms.
Have you noticed any change in her since she began on the medications?
Marsha Wood
All I got is my baby girl now
Prayers for Pets
Wow, that must have been a terrible shock.
Marsha Wood
It was a shock,
No all she does is get up eat and sleep, she’s blind so she doesn’t walk much
Prayers for Pets
It has been such a tough year, was this recent?
Marsha Wood
She’s tries to play with her toys a couple of times
Yes with in the year she has slowed down
I thought it was because of her age she’s 14 now,
Just turned 14 in oct
Prayers for Pets
I understand things can creep up overtime. Does the vet give her a prognosis? Did they say what to expect with the meds and her condition?
Marsha Wood
All I got is my baby girl now
Marsha Wood
No just to keep her on her heart meds for the rest of her life
Prayers for Pets
Ok, that makes sense. Do you have Vet insurance? If not you may want to look into it.
No honey I don’t
I wish I did it cost me almost 300 dollars for her vet call but she is worth it to me, I would do for her befor me
Prayers for Pets
You might want to do a search to see what is available in your area. I’m guessing that you’re elderly? New expenses can be a challenge.
I’m going to work on the post now. I will use much of our conversation here so ppl can understand her condition better. ❤ Caren
