Plum had some heart tests because of her murmur, irregular heartbeat and she collapsed once and got disoriented another time.
They confirmed she has an enlarged heart and a stage 1 heart condition. The good news is since it's early stage we can treat her with a basic heart med and it should control the situation. The idea is to make her heart not have to work so hard to do its job (as it's doing now) so it doesn't get worn out and ultimately go into failure.
What's interesting is looking at her chest XRAY we discovered that Plumy has some hardware in her right elbow, screws and bolts!
But seriously, It means she had to suffer a fracture to her leg or elbow at some point in her past life before I rescued her. I don't even want to imagine how that could have happened :(
I always wondered why she has a little dark bald patch on her right elbow and why sometimes she whimpers when I pick her up from under the shoulders. Must be that screw was digging into her..
Now on top of all Plum's many other ailments, she is also a heart patient..... with screws.
