Poodle Congestive Heart Disease
by: Anonymous

Sorry to hear about your poodle. Your dog is on all the standard medications veterinarians would try in this situation.

Lanitop is digoxin, Furantil is furosemide, and urbason is prednisone.

Congestive heart failure in dogs is usually a progressive disease, so the best thing to hope for is control of clinical signs, which even after a while, sometimes years, is difficult.

Sometimes it can take a while for the relapse of symptoms to come under control again.

A rebalancing of medications must be tried.

But there is no text book for this. It is just through different dosage trials to see what your dog responds to the best, which appears to be happening here. This always takes time.

I know you love your dog a lot, and it will be hard to make some tough choices coming up soon. You have to balance what is best for your dog and what you want for your dog.

In the mean time, these new medication dosages need a chance to work, and positive results are always not easy to see right away.

I have a poodle 14 years old and weighs 18 kg. For two years he found through X-ray and ECG - enlarged heart due to having a cough. He was appointed drug "lanitop - over a 1 / 4 in the morning and 1 / 4 evening, and after a period of 1 / 2 tabl.sutrin and 1 / 2 tabl.vecher ..... and so two years. Three weeks ago, the cough occurs in strong and frequent. We visited a veterinary clinic, where he put injection - which was a combination of medicine for heart furantril +. The doctor said to stop Lanitopa and continue treatment only Furantril. His prescribed medication for a period of one week. In the beginning the dog feel better, but then again his condition began to deteriorate. We went to another doctor who, after our review appoint Lanitop - 1 / 4 in the morning, Spironolactone - 1 tabl.sutrin and 1 / 4 table. furantril the day. The dog is not affected and we went back to him. He put his injection (again, in such a combination, as did former doctor at the clinic), but not stop the designated drugs. Coming home I noticed that the dog has a strong and redness around penis penis itself, which went red to dark violet, and there was a slight outflow. The next day the doctor, he appointed lkravni laboratory tests and put him back urbazon + injection, and said to continue with their assigned medication. The dog was well and influenced many others. more vital than the injection. From laboratory studies have shown the following: WBC - 19.7 g / I, Lymphocytes - 55.5 percent, monocytes - 33.7% Erythrocytes - 5.31, Haemoglobin - 130.0 g / I, Glucose - 9.91mmoI / I, Creatinine - serum-69umoI / L, total protein - 57.4 g / I, AST-21.9U / I, Albumin-39.6g / I, ALT 63.1 U / I, Urea 13.68 mmoI / I, LDH 477 U / I, Iron-53.2, AF - 359.3 U / I, Trigletseridi - 10.45 mmoI / I, uric acid - 26 umoI / L, Sodium - 154.3 mmoI / I, Potassium - 4.59 mmoI / I, Calcium - yniziran 1.309mmoI / I. The doctor said he would consult further with colleagues and gave me tablets "urbazon" to give him the weekend along with other drugs and to see the control on Monday. Also said that the situation is not good, and that can be expected and the worst.
Please tell me what should be done hereafter in this blood counts. Can I and how to help your dog?
