I have been told at the vet that they hear a heart murmur in Henry.
One doctor explained it sounds like a level 2 on a scale of 1 to 6, 6 being the worst.
He's scheduled for an EKG in a few weeks.
I recall maybe being told this before but now he is going to be 11 years old in early September.
The doctor also said he is clearly not in heart failure, which I understand is a process not quite an event. Once in heart failure, medication is prescribed.
He suggested I monitor breathes per minute when Henry is a asleep. Should be between 20 and 30 in 1 minute, not more, not rapid.
If anyone had any info to add or you are experiencing this please post in this thread.
