i was told the other day that my pekingnese has congestive heart...she also has a heart murmur. she is 14yrs old. what can I expect to happen? Is this the end for her?. How long can she last with this problem?
At this point your vet may recommend x-rays and a echocardiogram. This will help determine how well the heart is functioning. Your pet may be placed on special medication and he may be monitored on the medication usually with bloodwork. I find that small breed dogs generally do well as long as there are no other complications. vetcare
