Heart MurMur

Recommended Posts


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

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
