Default Can you please pray for Maximus?

He started to cough all of a sudden right after Thanksgiving. Took him to his vet and they suspected collapsed trachea. Gave him antibiotic and cough medication called Hydroccone. He was sleeping alot because of cough medication but his coughing got better. But last Sunday night he was up all night just panting. Took him back to the vet Monday morning and they sent us to ER. When we got there, the receptionist called the nurse saying "Code 1". He had a heart failure and had to stay in the hospital for two nights. Luckly, he is out of danger now but the doctor said with his age and this condition, the average life span is only one year. I am totally devastated and haven't been able to sleep nor eat.

Does anyone have an experience with a doggie baby with a heart failure? I hope the doctor is wrong and he can live much longer. Hie will be only 10 years old on Dec. 22nd and I love him more than anyone can imagine. Sorry for a long post but thanks for reading.

Love Maximus

Thank you for replying. Now he is on three medication. One for his heart, one for his lung (he had fluid in his lung when we got to the hospital) and something called Enalapril. He's been a very active and healthy baby and he's been having annual check up all his life (I don't do annual check up but he does) so I'm just in shock this is happening to him. Can't stop crying.

Love Maximus

I'm so sorry that your little one is sick. I lost my Eerie, several years ago to CHF, he was close to 15.
