    Hello my name is Teresa..we got our EB aug.17 we got Bentley for our 3 year old daughter that we adopted..I took him to the vet and she told me that he had a heart murmur..that is was ok and nothing to worry about..2 weeks later Bentley got the diarrhea I call the vet she says to come get meds..didn't even want to see him..I did pick meds up and gave him some..he threw up I called my friend who works at a different vet..she says he should have been seen.i call to a new vet first thing in morning they tell me to come in..vet checks him says his heart murmur is a grade 4 .,tomorrow night I take him for ultrasound ..I'm so scared he is not going to be ok..I called breeder and told him what was going on and he refundd all my money..he did have puppy's vet record and everything was ok with him but now this is showing..anybody go though this that has words of encouragement ..so this s so long..m just a very worried mommy...by the ya Bentley is 15 weeks now..

    Hi Teresa, first I want to say congrats on Bentley and take a deep breath. Like @2BullyMama said I have two. Sebastian and Remy both have grade 4 murmurs that when we did the ultrasound found out it was pulmonic stenosis. Sebastian was not eligible to have any surgery to repair the problem but Remy had an angiogram done to see if they could put a balloon in to expand his arteries but once they did the angiogram the cardiologist was afraid that his artery would blow and he would die on the table. Remy takes 25 mg of Atenelol twice a day but Sebastian is not on any meds. They were both diagnosed as puppies and Sebastian will be 3 in December and Remy will be 2 next month. Both are very healthy otherwise and show no symptoms of any heart disease except Sebastian cannot get over exerted as he will pass out. Take heart that Bentley has a chance to live a full life. Just love him and treat him no different. He doesn't know he has a heart condition because my two certainly don't know they have a heart condition. I'm here if you any questions.

    Hi, I've been to Knoebels lots , its the best amusement park around, better than Hershey . try to relax, exhale and relax. You can't be proactive if you're not in control, don't panic and go with the flow. It's going to be ok. really. Love your puppy and take him in your arms and keep him relaxed. It'll be ok. nice slow and calm . get some rest, tomorrow will look different , have the tests and let us know the results. keep us posted.
    Life is like a box of chocolate covered
