Hi everyone. I am new here. I just got a new puppy basset hound. Her name is chloe and she is 10 weeks old. A month and a half ago, my 9 1/2 year old basset passed away and I was and still am devastated. Back in january, she was diagnosed with complete heart block. I went forward and got her a pacemaker which turned her into the miracle dog. She was like a puppy again. But a month and a half ago, suddenly one night she started having breathing problems. It continued through the night and she also started coughing. I brought her into the cardiologist in the morning and he gave her an injection of fuermoside and put in her an oxygen cage. He called me an hour later and told me things were getting worse; she was coughing up blood. He didnt want to take her out of the oxygen cage and do a bunch of tests because she was having such a hard time breathing. She was suffering so I made the heart wrenching decision to put her down. We never found out what went wrong-- and why things happened so quickly. The cardiologist thinks she may have had a blood clot in her lung. It was just horrible and I had expected her to be around at least another 3 years with the pacemaker. The pacemaker was working fine, just something else went wrong with her unfortunately. sorry to ramble. Anyway, I am posting a pic of my new basset chloe.
