Update on Rambo, a patient who has a history of severe mitral regurgitation, congestive heart failure and azotemia. He was hospitalized almost one month ago for difficulty breathing and severe coughing.

Rambo came in to see our cardiologist today for a recheck to see if his new medication is working and not negatively affecting his kidney values. His kidney values look good and his owner says he is running down the stairs, playing, and not coughing as much, so he’s doing much better! Even though he’s a joy to see every time, we hope we don’t have to see Rambo until his next recheck in a few months.
