4My2Greys Posted July 6, 2013 Share Posted July 6, 2013 After having to deal with their cancers and losing Bruiser in February and then Beanie in March it seems that life didn't think that was enough trouble for me this year. When I took Nadir to Auburn to try to find out why he has been having the problem with increased urination they were not able to give me an answer. What they did tell me though is that he has a very large thrombus at the aortic trifurcation along with a heart that shows a hyperechoic myocardium on echocardiogram with signs of systolic failure. So I go straight from cancer to dealing with a heart problem. Right now he's on Clopidogrel to help prevent the formation of more clots. And bless my vet, he once again has come through to help me with the medication. The lowest price I was able to find at a pharmacy was $45 per month. He got me a 3-month supply for $25. We go back Wednesday to Auburn for our 3rd appointment and 2nd echocardiogram. Considering all the panting he's been doing at the slightest bit of exertion I'm not feeling that good about the prognosis, which they've listed as guarded, of his condition. I've had enough of my dogs being sick, I just want him to be well. Is that really so much to ask for? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
