Kaylee has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Detail of every wrong can be given if asked. So Thursday night (4/4) mom called and said Kaylee looked sick and was coughing. I met her at the local vet, where chest X-rays showed fluid in her lungs. Her respitory rate was high, but she’s always had a high one when going to the vets (and panics when she doesn’t see her favourite doctor). She was given a shot of lasix and sent home (their oxygen tank is crude, and they don’t have anyone to monitor past 11pm). We came home with a supply of lasix and a plan to see her cardiologist the next day. Around 4am Kaylees condition worsened again so I took her up to the cardiologist on an emergency basis. Unfortunately, the one Friday Kaylee got sick was the one where my cardio wasn’t available for emergency consult. However they were able to contact her and send her Thursday nights X-rays and Friday mornings X-rays. Thankfully, the problem seemed to stem from the fact that the lasix shot had worn off and she declined again before the next dose. The X-rays Friday looked a lot better than Thursdays. They gave her another shot, her respitory rate went down to 40, no coughing after an hour after that, and they sent me home on an increased dose with the plan to see her cardiologist on Monday. By 3pm, while her respitory rate was down to 20 and she only had a few small coughing fits, she started to look like what I posted in the video attached. My local vet is stumped and the neurologist at the same clinic as the cardio, but on an “on loan” bases and won’t be able to get here until Wed. My cardio said she’d happily do the same tests he’d run, then send the files to him, but once again I can’t see her until Monday. The nearest option doesn’t accept care credit and the one after charges outrageous fees. And I don’t know what the heck this is.
