My baby’s all smiles cos we just got a call from CVCA and his ECG result is all good!! 🙏🏼
.
.
He just needs to continue his heart meds (Lasix, Vetmedin, Enalapril, and Spironolactone), stick with Royal Canin Early Cardiac dry food (my boy gained 4 lbs in a week! ☺️), then next week add Taurine, L-Carnitine, and fish oil supplement to his diet.
.
.
We try to limit his walk and playtime with Cooper and refrain him from getting overly excited ~ Next week, he’s also scheduled for another follow-up exam, his blood chemistry profile checked, and a 24-hour Holter monitor with CVCA.

Thank God for another blessing! Thanks to everyone who still keeps Bogart in your prayers and everyone who helped financially. We ❤️ you all!! #grateful #godisgood

Back at the vet again for a follow-up exam and to check his heart rate and ECG ❤️ Bogart is doing really well at home with all the meds, exercise, and diet, so we’re hoping everything turns out well for him 🙏🏼

Bogart’s Diagnosis 💔 #dilatedcardiomyopathy
.
.
.

Although our family is thrilled and thankful that Bogart is finally home, his diagnosis broke our hearts to pieces. The cardiologist said that dogs, especially bulldogs and senior dogs, usually only live about 6-12 months although some get to live up to 2 years. He is currently on 5 medications: Lasix and Vetmedin for his heart + Baytril, Clavamox, and Doxycycline for his pneumonia. Tomorrow he will start with Enalapril, then in a week with Spironolactone, then Mexiletine. In two weeks, he will start with Taurine, L-carnitine, and fish oil supplements. He is also now on a low sodium diet (Royal Canin Early Cardiac) and limited activities/brief walks.
.

.

Although Bogart is taking conventional medications, we are looking at holistic alternatives that could also help him. I’ve read about COQ10, Hawthorn, L-Aginine, Arjuna, Camu Camu Powder, Krill oil, and large doses of Vitamin E. If your dog went through/is going through the same health problems as Bogart, please feel free to share your experience with us 🙏🏼

Thank you God. My heart is so happy to see my baby doing better. I am beyond thankful to everyone who kept Bogart in your thoughts and prayers. He’s almost back to his normal self. He was eating, breathing and sleeping normal, and seemed to be just happy. However, our fight doesn’t end here. We’ll see a cardiologist tomorrow to assess how his heart is doing and a prognosis that will determine our future.
.
.

I am still humbly asking and begging for your help. Please still include Bogart in your prayers. I don’t want my baby to suffer, but I’ll never be ready to let go of my best friend, my baby boy. If only I could turn back the time, I would make everything perfect for him. If I could take all the pain away, I would do it in a heartbeat 💔 #prayersforbogart #Godisgood

So happy to see my baby boy!! He still needs his heart monitored and will be seen by a cardiologist either tomorrow or Tuesday. For now, they’re still treating his pneumonia, but they are pretty sure he has a heart problem. Thank you God he is doing much better now 🙏🏼

U P D A T E: Bogart was finally admitted this afternoon. He’s currently on IV and getting enough oxygen to stabilize him. He’s also on medication to treat his pneumonia. His bloodwork showed normal liver, kidneys, and other organs, but an abnormal white cell count. He has an enlarged lymph node by his abdomen and the night vet said he might have heart disease on top of what’s going on with his lungs. The initial vet said Bogart’s chances are less than 50% given his age and breed, BUT I AM NOT GIVING UP ON MY BOY. I know in my heart he will get through this. God is good. 🙏🏼

We took Cooper with us when we visited him this evening and his eyes lit up. We were able to briefly pet and hug him and I’m sure he was happy to see all of us despite being in pain and discomfort. I wish I could take it all away 💔
.
.
.

We were able to put down $2500 as deposit but was told that this will only be good for a 24hr stay/monitor. The initial vet wants to keep Bogart for at least 48-72 hours and we definitely need to come up with the rest of the $4800 estimate, for now. We would greatly appreciate any amount, or if you could share and repost. But most of all, please please continue to pray for my boy 🙏🏼 .

Thank you @adamcarroll47. Your help means a lot to us ❤️

The staff at Pet ER in Towson won’t admit Bogart until we put down at least $4K as deposit and we currently only have $2000. We’re humbly asking for any donation so they can admit my baby, #repost, or even just a prayer so Bogart can get through this 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
