    Default Help Needed!

    Before I got my baby Mishka 3yrs ago, I did everything right. I did months of research on everything Bulldog, even researched breeders thoroughly. Then I finally got her and my life is so complete. Got the greatest Bulldog vet ever! He took such good care of her from the start. We spend thousands on medical bills and she is worth every penny. Our vet got in a bad accident, so we had 2 take Mishka 2 another vet, she wasn't very good. Freaked me out completely. She said she could only hear one sound and I should take her 2 a hart specialist. She wouldn't answer any of my questions, just kept saying hart specialist. I'm so upset, and can only get a apointment 2 weeks from now! Have any one experienced something similar with their bulldog? The hart only having one sound?

    So sorry to hear about this, hope it turns out to be nothing. Where do you live? We drive to Pretoria with our dogs if something is wrong, we've found a great vet there... Hatfield bird and Animal Hospital. They've done so much for us and our dogs have always been treated very good there.

    My Tubby has a heart murmur. He had an ultra sound and the whole works. They found it was something he could live with and would probably never affect him. They told us as long as he is his normal playful self and doesn't need a break after 10 minutes he is fine.

    I was so freaked out and cried for days but Tubbs is perfectly fine, tearing up his toys and running around like a mad man so I'm sure your Mishka will be perfectly fine. I found its harder on us owners then the actual dogs themselves, their just happy to have a belly rub and some water to drink lol

    Please keep in mind, this is an opinion only and not verified, try not to worry
    until you KNOW there is a problem.

    I, myself, have many chronic health conditions and have been misdiagnosed
    many times. I have learned that Doctors (& Vets) are not GOD! The good ones
    know this and act accordingly.

    Keeping you & yours in prayers, please keep us informed...GOD bless!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Four out of 6 of my Bulldogs have had some kind of heart problem. The important thing is to get an accurate diagnosis and give the medication as prescribed. Most heart medications are "people" meds. We got Mack's through WalMart.com for a lot less $$$! Properly treated these dogs can live a normal life!

    I would say if your first bully vet never said anything about it, I wouldn't worry about it. The new vet may not know what she is talking about. I think I'd find another vet, a bully vet, and get a second opinion.

    @Marizan I have no experience with heart issues, but I would most definitely be seeking a 2nd opinion. I tagged Kim to help give you some insight as she has bullies with heart murmurs.
