She(Nala) is a beautiful yellow lab pup that just had her first set of shots. I got a call from the breeder that the vet heard a heart murmur but noticed that she looked great and had no cough. Puppies can have small murmurs that can heal themselves but couldn't tell her what level it was. Dakoda is already attached to her and blew $300.00 at Cabelas for her stuff. We are taking her to another (I say better vet)on Friday. Dakoda wants her regardless and the breeder did state that she would replace the pup if she died even if he took her. Mike says wait to see what the vet says. If she needs meds is one thing but major surgery with no guarentee is a whole other thing. I'm so heart broken as I'm also attachedto her but I may have to break his heart for his own good.(He would get pick of litter in a few weeks). This was a new set of dogs she had and after discovering this she set up a spay and nueter for both. They will be sold that way

Aww I'm so sorry to hear that! I really hope everything comes out ok tomorrow!

Something that would increase her chances of being healthy as she grows is the best diet possible. If you like I can get you a website with independent ratings of tons of different dog food companies. It rates them on an even scale, and even I was surprised to see that brands like pedigree, purina and eukanuba were all one and two star foods, very low quality. I feed Taste of the Wild which is a 6 star brand and I'll never go back to purina after seeing the amazing changes in my dogs health.

The website is www.dogfoodanalysis.com

That's because they spend all their money on advertising. It's really too bad that they don't just turn around and put some of that advertising back into the food, they'd really have a much better product.

She has a level 3/4 heart murmur but could still live a good life as the rest of her checks out great. If she starts showing heart failure we can do meds($20.00 aprox. a month), Surgery possible as she gets older but only a couple thousand so I'm starting a savings account for her now. SShe can't be spayed until 5 mos. and she has a small chance of it going a way(way small). After speaking to the vet we decided that she'd be better off with us loving her no matter for how long. on the smiley side...She already comes to her name and likes her collar Thanks for your guys concern and well wishes. Today she turned 7 weeks and weighs 8lbs. 10 oz.

She's home now with us so we can keep a close eye on her. At this moment her and my son are sacked out on the couch in the front room under a frog blanket.
