UPDATE: Nigel sees the Cardiologist this morning at 9:00. Please keep praying for good news. We will update when we can.
Nigel was released to his foster this morning to go to Dr. Dykes vet clinic. He took 2 more xrays and did a lengthy exam. His determination is that the fluid in his lungs is caused by the enlargement of his heart. It is recommended that we do a complete cardiac workup with Med Vet in Mobile, AL since she is a certified heart cardiologist. He says sometimes dogs are born with a cardiomyopathy. He thinks this is causing the coughing, shortness of breath and the fluid to build in the lungs. He has recommended that we put off the elongated palate surgery until after we get the cardio work up and the recommendations from the cardiologist.
We received word that 2 year old Nigel Meriweather collapsed in his foster home last night and stopped breathing. He was able to be resuscitated by his foster parents using CPR thanks to their quick actions. They then rushed him to the nearest ER veterinarian as his breathing was still very labored. After taking x-rays, it was determined that, in addition to his elongated soft palate, which we were aware of and for which he had an upcoming surgery scheduled to correct, Nigel was also suffering from pulmonary edema (fluid in his lungs) . He collapsed 2 more times at the ER vet, once after they took the x-rays and again after being treated with lasix and dexamethasone and while on oxygen.
