My 3 year old male boxer started vomiting Saturday, and didnt want to eat. He was still pretty energetic, so I just kept an eye on him. The next day, he tried to eat and vomited again, and I noticed his belly was bigger than normal. He started having very hard and fast breathing, so first thing the next morning, I took him to the vet. My vet did a lot of tests, all coming back normal. Kidneys, liver all fine. He ruled out pancreatitis and liver cancer. He gave me 2 antibiotics, and said call him if he didnt improve. Well, 2 days went by and he didnt get any better. He started with diarrhea, and his belly was very distended. I took him back to the vet and he sent me to a specialist. Upon examining him, I was told he most likely is having heart failure. I was devastated. They wanted to do xrays and ultrsounds. I said yes until I saw the estimate I had to sign. $700.00 just for the tests. I just had spent $300 at my vet, and I just burst into tears. I do not have that kind of money, everything I have is going for my sons medicine that is not covered under insurance, $1,000 a month. I left the office sobbing uncontrollable. I went on line and found out info on l-carnitine and taurine to add to his diet. His breathing is terrible now, the fluid in his abdomen is much worse and I am afraid he is going to die tonight...Does anyone have any suggestions?
