Heart MurMur

3 posts in this topic

My parents have a 7 month old American Water Spaniel and vet just diagnosed it with a heart murmur. Vet told them, that with the breeder that my mom got the pup from that it is not uncommon. And with this line that they tend to outgrow it, but may take 2 or 3 years. The pup does run out of energy fairly quickly, about a half hour or so of hard playing. Does anyone have any experience or thought about this. They are really torn and are not sure what to do, or what options they have.

Was there a health guarantee on the pup? If so, I would take it back. I realize there may be emotional connections, but if you want a hunting dog, two to three years is a long time to wait. At least you found it at a young age. I am dealing with something at 6.5 years old. No more guarantee....

If all they want is a pet, then live with it. I had an American Water Spaniel once. I won't do that again.

I have a 3 year old Britanny. One vet said she had a heart

murmur when she was a pup. No other vet has said anything

about it when she goes in. She ran about 15 miles non-stop

one day grouse hunting this month. She goes and goes.

Don't worry too much

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
