Lola came into our hospital this weekend for evaluation of increased respiratory effort and abdominal swelling. Bloodwork, radiographs and an AFAST at Greenwood Village Veterinary Clinic found that she had tri-cavitary effusion (fluid around the heart, lungs, and abdomen), so she was transferred to our hospital for continued care.


Rambo came in yesterday for severe coughing and difficulty breathing, which is a common sign of congestive heart failure. After spending some time in the oxygen cage with Mr. Zebra and a change in medications, he was on his way home.
