Not such a great day

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Barney wasn’t very well last night, short of breath and panting a lot. Called the vet and they just said he has had his chemo (Doxorubicin) and see how he was in the morning.
This morning he breathing was awful so straight to the vet.
They took an x-ray while we waited and not good news. It seems the Chemo has affected his heart, the x-ray showed massive fluid build up around his heart and lungs. It also showed a suspicious white area on his lung.
What we and the vet decided was to treat him with water tablets to see if the fluid dissipates then if necessary treat his heart. The vet is hoping it will settle on its own.
As for the suspicious area, if Barney gets over this latest hiccup then we will have his chest x-rayed again to see if it has got bigger before his next lot of Chemo and then decide what to do.
I just want to say God Bless all our dogs.
