Oh, no!  Poor Atom and poor Chris.  This must not be too common in a dog so young, is that right? Sending lots of good thoughts to you, and hoping for a positive update. I'm so very sorry you are going through this.

OK.  An update as I know now.

Atom has always had some issues with getting out of breath with little exertion.  And he does this kind of hacky cough, like there's something caught in his throat.  I talked with our vet about this last time we were in (4-6 weeks ago), and she suggested it was because his trachea/esophagus was a little swollen.  I didn't think anything of it because he eats inedible crap - sticks and pine cones and trash and etc - off the floor/ground all. the. time.  He's a puppy.  It's what they do.  Everything goes in his mouth! She also said he had a heart murmur -which again, greyhound, so I didn't think much of it. He plays, he runs, he barks, he does all the things a baby dog should do.

Fast forward to this morning. We go out to potty and play, which he does, then he gets really out of breath and starts hacky coughing again.  normal for him, except it doesn't stop.  Then I notice he's coughing up blood! Quite a bit of blood.  So off to the evet we go!

His blood oxygen is low, his blood pressure is high. The ER doc wants to do xrays, which is fine with me.  He comes back in and shows me these: 

(These are cell pics of the xrays on the screen)

That big white blob in the middle of both pics is his heart.  It's about twice the size of a normal greyhound heart. You should be able to see all the way around it, and see the lobes of his lungs.   There's also some edema in the part of the left lung that can be seen - which is where the doc believes the blood is coming from.    It was also his opinion that the heart enlargement is "probably" congenital, since he's had this issue for so long.

So. 

Next step is an echocardiogram to see what's what, and what, if anything we can do about it.   The cardiologist at that ER couldn't see him until Monday, but the ER doc found one at another evet that is doing the echo this afternoon.   We're waiting now for the call about the results of that.  But most of the possibilities are not extremely optimistic for a good prognosis of long term survivability.    There *might* be drug treatment options, depending on what's wrong.

No matter what he's staying the night in hospital to stabilize his blood oxygen and pressure.  After that, we really don't know yet.

I'm just flattened.  I'll try and update later.  Please send him all the white light and prayers you can.  The little man needs them.
