Don't know if I should have posted this with my previous posts or not.
At the recent visit to the vet for the schnauzers annual check up I was shocked to learn that she has a heart murmur. I knew something was wrong because the vet was taking so long to check her. He has graded it as a two. She is a few weeks off turning 7. I wasn't expecting something like this at this stage but when she is older.
She was given an anti histamine shot prior to her vaccinations to try to stop/reduce any reactions which we have had previously. He checked her about 15 minutes after giving the anti histamine. I did query whether this could have caused an issue and he did not think so. She is a nervous dog and always shakes and is on edge when we enter the vets. On the table being examined she was not shaking but not happy although she behaved herself and let the vet do his work.
We have never had a sign of a heart murmur prior to this. We will go back early next year and see if it is any worse which then will probably need further tests.
