Too often we hear “heart disease” and think “death sentence.”
Fortunately in these times of modern medicine that is rarely the case if a canine patient’s heart problem is detected and treated early.
Take Sheba Lee, for example. We first diagnosed her heart murmur March 16, 2004, and began treatment. Sheba came to see me today for a routine, uncomplicated examination and her mom was looking at the Human-Pet Age Analogy chart we have in each examination room.
“Sheba is older than I am,” mom exclaimed, “and she still runs around like a spring chicken!”
Early diagnosis and aggressive intervention can give astounding results.
See you tomorrow, Dr. Randolph.
