Tom- heart or asthma- or both?
- Hi all,
just a quick question.toms vet says there is a bloodtest about 100
bucks that will tell me if he has heart disease. she doesn't want to
give tom steroids for possible asthma if he has heart disease.
i have limited funds, and need to know the best way to determine
this.tom is haveing symptoms of asthma, not coughing , but he did in
the past. is taking theo-dur, and cyproheptadine, to open passageways.
I know that it wil not help his lung inflamation, but they are
thinking the steroids will hurt him, if it is heart.
what can I do? any ideas. I am getting him in this afternoon, cause
this morning at 230am he was having increased breathing rate! and
sounded not right , is eating, and peeing. but I need to know what to
ask the vet.
