I'm so sorry.. If you don't mind me asking - when was he diagnosed with the murmur and MVD? And what grade was he?

I'm so sorry about this news.

My other dog, who passed at 17, had a heart murmur and mitro valve disease, but very minor his whole life. It did not become an issue until he was around 15 and a 1/2-16. After an ultrasound, it was discovered that he heart had enlarged. It was watched and grew a bit more and then he was put on meds. He was considered to be in CHF, but I don't know the stage. However, the medicine stabilized the growth. So, in my situation the medicine helped.

This thread is very old, and the person you're directing the question to has apparently not been on the board for several years. I don't know why. :(

If you have questions about heart disease, maybe you could start a whole new thread -- or if that's not possible yet, find a newer one to post in.
