Iím so sorry for what you are going through with Jerry. Please try to take a deep breath and tell yourself it will all work out. What has already happened canít be undone so deal with his teeth. Little dogs frequently have dental issues if they are not kept up with so losing teeth is sadly not all that uncommon, they can still live a good life. Once the dental is done he is likely going to feel so much better. As for the heart murmur, my Apollo was diagnosed with a murmur when he was just a puppy. My vet said it might go away, it didnít, but it didnít get much worse either. When he was a senior it progressed from a stage 1 to a stage 2 confirmed by a cardiologist. He never had to take medication, we tracked his resting respiration rate on an app called Cardalis. I thought it would be the thing that eventually took him from us but it wasnít. He lived to be almost 14.
Hang in there with Jerry, it sounds like it might not be what you planned on but you are likely a godsend to this little dog. I hope it all works out.
