Update -Teddy in Heart Failure
- Hi everyone,
this is just a note to update you on Teddy. No need to reply. :)
Teddy seems to be having a tough time coming out of heart failure.
Christmas eve at 11:30, we rushed him to his heart doctor who kept
him over night and upped his Lasix dose. Still the fluid in the
pulmonary sac remained. Yesterday I took him back to see his doctor.
She seems quite worried about Teddy. She wants him on 12.5 of Lasix
3x a day, then wants to see him back next Saturday. His kidney
functions are fine (He had been on Tumil-K for 2 weeks but is now
off. ) We are monitoring his kidneys now because of this.
He actually seems a lot better today and is more himself. I think
this higher dose is working but I hope that he won't have to stay on
it for very long.
It's just one day at a time.
Happy New Year to the group and blessings to you and your kitties for
the New Year!
