Nigel's chest x-ray
- Hi :)
At 5 PM today, I take Nigel in to the cardiologist for a follow-up
chest x-ray. He was in CHF 6 weeks ago, and is now stabilized on
diltiazem and lasix. He cannot take a beta-blocker as he has
I am anxious, because it stresses him out to go to the
cardiologist. Last time, once he got home he started breathing
rapidly (60 to 64 bpm). The ER vet said I could bring him in, but
that it might stress him MORE. So, I stayed up all night and by
6:35 AM, he was down to 32 bpm (normal resting for him).
I am hoping his lungs are clear, and that he doesn't get too
stressed out from the vet trip.
Wish me luck!
