Oliver 7yr Chihuahua has Congestive Heart Failure: Pet Emergency

 

 

Oliver Chihuahua Emergency Vet Essendon Fields

Oliver  is a 7 year old Chihuahua has CHF (Congestive Heart Failure)

Yesterday, Oliver’s owner noticed an increased respiratory effort and brought him into our Essendon Fields Pet Emergency Centre.

Oliver was placed in an oxygen chamber and admitted for supportive care.

The leading cause of heart failure in dogs is chronic valvular disease, next is dilated cardiomyopathy and then congenital heart disease and heartworms.

What is Congestive Heart Failure?

CHF occurs when either the heart muscle or the heart values are diseased and the heart is not able pump blood efficiently. This causes a build up of fluid in the lungs and also sometimes the abdomen. Congestion the lungs means not enough oxygen is available to the body.

Symptoms:

  • Coughing more than usual
  • Having a hard time breathing or exercising
  • Tiring easily
  • Pacing before bedtime
  • Swollen belly due to fluid build-up in the lungs and other organs
  • Fainting
  • Tongue or gum change to a bluish grey colour
  • Weight loss

Unchecked  heart  problems can make things harder on your dog and even shorten their life span. Receiving the right  treatment and care your dog can go on to live a long life.

Sadly, Oliver’s heart disease will continue to progress and he is on medication for the rest of his life. The medication will give  Oliver a happy and comfortable life for as long as possible.

Oliver has gone today with his caring owner and the staff at AAE wish him all the best.

Kitty Treated with Radioactive Iodine- I131 Therapy

I131 Cat Therapy Dr Linda Abraham

It’s time for a shout out to one of our patients!

Kitty is a very cuddly cat who has been under the care of Dr Linda Abraham for the last week. Kitty was referred from Altona Veterinary Clinic for treatment of an over active thyroid.

Kitty is one of the many cats that Dr Linda has treated with radioactive Iodine (i131) for Feline Hyperthyroidism. For most cats that are treated, their over active thyroid returns to normal and they loose the need for daily medication. Removing the need for daily medication greatly improves the health and well being for the pet and owner.

Animal Accident & Emergency Point Cook, is one of limited facilities in Australia that are licenced to perform treatment for cats. We perform the service weekly and are happy to discuss options for therapy with you.

Kitty will be discharged today.
