Just worried about my Havanaese, Rico. He is 7 years old. Last Jan. they detected a heart murmur at a grade 2-3. He had an echo and it showed a valve issue but it's not serious - at least yet. He will be re-tested with an echo this Jan, a the year mark. Yesterday he went in for his annual shots and his grade is now a 4 for the heart murmur. The Vet said that 'listening' to his heart and the fact it's a grade 4 is not a big deal since my dog shows NO signs of heart issues. He told me what to watch for. But I'm scared. Grade 4 sounds so serious.
Has anyone dealt with this too? Does this mean my dog is headed for serious heart issues?
