URGENT AM BEGGING MY 14 YEAR OLD PEKENGESE HAS MITRAL VALVE DISEASE, HEART ENLARGEMENT AND HEART MUMUR
My 14 year old precious fur baby has been diagnosed with Mitral Valve Disease and heart enlargement. He has graded a heart mummer btw 1-2 and also says the thorax is now parallel to the spine as the heart has grown. Below are the reports
Lateral (sin-dex) and ventro-dorsal views of the chest:
- Enlargement of the cardiac silhouette,
- Increased sterno-cardiac contact,
- Trachea pushed dorsally and parallel to the spine
- No evidence of pulmonary edema on these views.
- The right atrium appears to be normal in size (no enlargement) compare to the left atrium.
- RA measured 1. 25 x 1. 2 cm
- Thickened mitral valve with very mild mitral regurgitation.
- No dilated cardiomyopathy,
- No hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
All images consistent with an early stage of Mitral valve disease.
The vet has prescribed Fortekor (Benazepril Hydrochloride) 2. 5mg a day and Furosemide 20 mg twice a day.
My dog started off with cluster seizures for a day last year in Oct 2012 he was in Kepra for a few months and then we weaned him off. Early Feb this year every night when we went to sleep he would pant incessantly having sleepless nights eyes big and wide he would ask to go out then come back in then pance he did not know what he wanted. He was irritable and started loosing muscle. We took him for bloods everything was perfect We did a chext xray and an abdomen scan and heart disease was detected. Now I have been a firm believer of earth clinic for years.
Please advise me am I doing the right thing.
I have deceided not to give him a diruetic twice a day as he already starting getting muscle pulls and then gets all stressed and panting begins. I am instead going to give him 1 diruetic a day and then go down to half a day in conjunction with a homepathic diruetic But I want to do away with the diruetic tablet so how can I do this naturally along with the homeopathic drops? I live in Dubai so dandelion tea etc is not the best option can someone please give me various options?
The Foretekor for his heart I will give him 2. 5 a day in conjunction with a homeopathic medication called Rytmopasc
My dog weighs 5kgs
I am giving him 100 mg of vit c with rose hips
100mg of Magnesium
20mg of COQ 10 as Ubiquinone
1tsp of D-Ribose
2mg of Zinc
500mg of L-Arginine
I read somwhere that Propionyle L-Carnitine is very good what is the difference btw Propionyle L-Carnitine and L-Carnitine? can I give L-Carnitine and how much ?
I will buy Milk Thistle 200 mg and supplement him with it
I also bought Manuka honey how much do I give him ?
Have I missed out something?Help me please I need your valuable input. August
