  2. My Darling Girl Has Congenital Heart Failure

    Thank you for saying it how it is....
  3. My Darling Girl Has Congenital Heart Failure

    I think at the heart of this is my own anxiety/sadness..I just don't want Polly to die...unrealistic, but when emotions are involved....
  4. Hello...I haven't been on here for ages..change of circumstances...but my girl, Polly (8 years) has been diagnosed with congenital heart failure - about 10 months ago now - been given a max of 2 years. The vet at the time prescribed Vetmedin - which Polly has been taking morning and evening. I went to make my usual phone call to the vet at lunchtime to order another bottle and the vet nurse tells me that it is legislation that I bring Polly in ever six months when she is being treated for a chronic illness. Now, Polly literally cries when she goes to the vets so I said I didn't want to put her through that and the vet nurse told me that they would withhold her medication if we don't bring her in. I am besides myself...it's bad enough having to look at that gorgeous girl every day and know that she is dying...but now I have to subject her to six monthly vet visits if I want the medication. I am sitting here at work..I should be working but I am bereft inside...I love her so much I guess I shall have to subject her to routine vet visits. What do you wise people think - a about her prognosis and b about the vet threatening to withhold the medication?
  5. Random No Sense In It

  6. Over Feeding

    I know I do it all wrong, but my two eat literally when they want - food is continually available - and both are within their ideal weight range....

  9. Dog Biting Child

    I understand the reasoning behind what most have advocated; it's certainly a sad situation for everyone, but perhaps foolishly, my sympathies can't seem to move beyond the dog.
  10. Meet Oliver... The New Foster

    lovely outcome for everyone involved...
  11. Masking Odour

    my girl occasionally pooed on the carpet in winter...we put it down to the fact that it was nice and warm on her little bottom!! Needless to say, all mats have gone.
  12. Zig Had Another Turn Last Night

    They like to test our resolve don't they Staffyluv? Still, signs are encouraging, so fingers crossed it continues that way for both of you!
  13. Meet Oliver... The New Foster

    my fingers are crossed for the happy ending we're all looking for - for Oliver. Good on you to getting him to the point where he is so fabulous!
  14. Pancreatitis 2nd Time 13 Year Old Dog :(

    reading the posts Tazar, I'm sorry to see your little girl is still not up and doing...I can't say anything sensible, only to offer you my crossed fingers as well.
  15. Take Your Dog To Work Day

    Just wanted to welcome you to DOLers and say that my boy would spend the whole day seeking out belly rubs and my girl would be going for everyone's ankles..so probably not for us, but good on you for flagging it.
