Rusty came to us due to a several day history of poor appetite and lethargy. He had a very enlarged lymph node under his jaw, and his blood work showed very high calcium levels.
This handsome boy was diagnosed with a heart murmur as a pup. Using ultrasound, we were able to determine the cause and also whether anesthesia for his neuter would be safe. Thankfully his heart was still functioning well and his neuter was uneventful. He will have periodic ultrasounds to monitor progression. Happily, he runs and plays like a normal happy dog and at this time there is no cause for concern. We really enjoyed seeing him for his annual exam and vaccines.
