    BTW what do they do for a heart murmur for dogs? Just monitor him?!!

    I am also curious about this. I have never had to deal nor heard about this.

    if it's just a murmur, I'm not sure what they do. I have two who were diagnosed with murmurs then it was finally diagnosed as pulmonic stenosis (PS). One is on meds, the other not.

    Ahh heart murmurs the bane of my existence!!! Tubby was diagnosised with one from his first vet check and they knew right away it wasn't a puppy murmur. He has remained steady at a level 4. We did the ultra sound and they said there is a hole in one of the tubes so some blood spirts out of it. They said he would live a perfectly happy life and we could reultra sound him at 1 but we have no plans to because he shows no signs out any distress. In fact I think the hole somehow has enhanced his performance and speed LOL Bentley will be in our prayers because I remember the mental break down I had when the vet gave us the diagnosis. Truly one of the worst moments of my life till I pulled myself back together and started to research

    Tubbys was diagnosised as Ventricular septal defect

    Hang in there! I wish I could offer some advice too but I know nothing about a grade 4/5. Our pitty Ace had a heart murmur and it never gave him any problems. It had a be a low grade. Bentley's in my prayers.
