My bullyboy Gunney is 11 1/2. He experiences sleep apnea, but recently he had a severe episode. Usually he will lift his head open his mouth and take a deep breath. This time he lifted his head but fell over. I ran to him, he wasn't breathing, I couldn't open his jaw, so I covered his nose with my mouth and breathed in a couple of times. Then tried to open his jaw still couldn't repeated covering his nose with my mouth and breathed in. Nothing again. I called out to God and asked for His help and his mouth opened he took a really deep breath. He was a bit dazed. We took him to the vet. That was Sat. After xrays showing enlarged heart or...We saw the cardiologist on Monday. The ultra sound showed a mass around his heart but it isn't doing anything. A weak heart with poor blood flow though. He is now on med to strengthen his heart and one to improve blood flow. The doctor also found a mass in his abdomen, but said it COULD be a nogule. The doctors hope is that by strenghtening his heart and improving blood flow there will be no more severe sleep apnea attacks. PRAY!!!PRAY!!!PRAY!!THANK YOU LORD FOR EACH AND EVERY DAY WE HAVE HIM WITH US!!!
Thank you and God Bless!!!
