Re: [Re: [[FH] Cardiomyopathy/difficulty breathing]]
- Your story does sound familar, those are the symptoms that Artemis
had, except for the weazing sound.
I STRONGLY urge you to try the Vet-Cardiologist AND a Vet-Naturopath.
Artemis was also diabetic, and his diabetes had been out of control after
having to switch from a dis-continued insulin. His diabetes only cam under
control a few weeks ago, right about the same time this all started.
Certainly, he was weak at that point.
