We first saw Haus at the beginning of December due to episodes of collapsing, heavy breathing, coughing, and lethargy. Our cardiologist found that he had Dilated Cardiomyopathy, likely from a grain-free diet. After proper treatment and medication, he is feeling like himself again and gaining some weight back (partially due to all the treats he receives during checkups).
We are so excited that Roxy Sue was finally able to go home after 4 days in the ICU. Roxy Sue is only 3 years old and was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) most likely dietary related. She has been eating Kirkland Grain Free diet and developed coughing a week ago. She went to a local ER that took x-rays that showed a severely enlarged heart and fluid in her lungs. The ER immediately transferred her to EVS for further testing and treatment with our cardiology service.
