Heart Murmur

Levi's Surgery Story

The biggest unexpected surprise for our family came in July of 2016, when we took Levi in for a routine physical exam prior to having his teeth cleaned.  Dogs have to go under anesthesia to have their teeth cleaned, and Levi has traditionally had some issues related to anesthesia and we wanted to be safe.  His last checkup was in April 2016; he went in for an ear infection and at that time, he was in perfect health (except for the ear infection, of course).  So it came as quite a shock when the vet announced that he heard a heart murmur level 4/5 for the first time in Levi's life...
