Default Cheynie had a heart murmur

Had a little bit of a scare this week... Cheynie went in for her 6 months check up and was doing her typical "Cheynie serenading everyone nonstop" routine. My sister went with me and she sang to us in the car all the way there; she gets herself so worked up! She is definitely the most 'tightly wired" dog I have ever had...her vet and the vet techs know this and she is good with them, just overly excited. She is fine but her vet did say that he heard a slight heart murmur. That surprised me, I have had puppies with juvenile heart murmurs that have been monitored but they have outgrown them. Cheynie never had any issue. Her vet said it seemed very minor and that we could look at it again in six months and then do an echocardiogram. I was willing to do it now though, just to be safe and know if there was any issue we needed to deal with. She went in on Thursday and, of course, I had to leave her there for most of the day. Cheynie was not a happy pup and sang to everyone to let them know! I was at home picturing her crated and the entire staff wearing ear plugs. The very good news is that the specialist who did the test said she was just fine, the murmur was so minor as to be negligible. Ordinarily they would schedule another echo in six months but he said she wouldn't even need that and that it was just something to note. And... that "innocent" heart murmurs can be occur when a dog is stressed which is likely the case with Cheynie... Whew! I guess she is just going to continue her 'singing career" :-)

I never knew that about heart murmurs. Guess it could be the same for humans as well. I know mine was heard sometimes, sometimes not.

My golden retriever KayCee had an enlarged heart chamber, found when she was bout 4. Was on a baby aspirin ever other day, and on the same blood pressure med as hubby was, only on 1/4 the does he was on. Was almost 9 when I lost her to cancer. I am glad your girl is okay.
