Sophie had to be rushed to the ER Vet four times between April 2018 and September 2018. The fourth time (September of 2018), Sophie collapsed at home and had to be revived using CPR before being rushed to the ER Vet Hospital. Sophie was scheduled for surgery in Japan January of 2019. We were very worried that she wouldn’t make it, so our Cardiologist contacted The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in London and they were able to schedule Sophie for her mitral valve repair surgery October 15th 2018.
Sophie is now back home healing and doing very well. She is being treated for an infection, Endocarditis, which after many tests has not been confirmed, but blood work does show an infection and since she recently had her surgery, we are erring on the side of caution. Her latest blood work was excellent. Her neutropenia and anemia have resolved. Her murmur is barely detectable and her heart continues to get smaller. She no longer coughs when she drinks water or gets excited. We are absolutely thrilled and thank everyone involved that played a part in saving our Sophie.
