I was convinced he had congestive heart failure, and was about to go any day.
Thankfully I was WRONG!
My dear vet listened patiently to the recording I had made of Paris' cough, and all my concerns. He then asked how I was dealing with it all. How nice of him!
He said Paris's heart murmur sounded the same and his breathing in his lungs sounded clear. He said all the noise I hear is definatly coming from the trachea. He said he was as healthy as he could be for a dog who was blind. And yes he does have some hearing loss.
Paris was very happy with the news, but all tuckered out.
He was glad they didn't have to poke anything anywhere, too!
