By Dr. Cynthia Maro

This week I examined a pet on unexpected emergency service named Elsa, a 13-12 months-previous Pomeranian, who has a history of heart sickness. 

Elsa’s heart affliction has been secure given that Dr. Anleu, my associate, and I had been ready to properly diagnose and deal with her particular heart problem. We utilized upper body X-rays, echocardiography, EKG and blood tension conclusions to arrive up with a blend of food plan, supplements and cardiac medications which very first obtained her out of acute congestive heart failure and now into a very well-managed condition of cardiac perform.  

When Elsa entered the place of work, she could not stroll and her owner said that on Labor Working day evening, her neighbors ended up setting off fireworks, as she was allowing her dogs arrive inside from their stroll. They turned so frightened when the initially boom went off that the canines scrambled to get into the house and weak Elsa, who weighs just 5 lbs ., fell off the deck.
