We had an appointment with European Veterinary Specialist in Small Animal Cardiology Joao Loureiro at North Down Specialist Referrals this afternoon. Joao is a very nice guy, he is very gentle with Sizzle and Sizzle has been a fantastic dog, Joan praised him for being such a calm, stressless and easy dog to do the Ultrasound and ECG tests.

It was very difficult for me to leave Sizzle there after our 30min consultant. I was dying to know the result and being restless and stressed worried about my little boy. Joao said he was expecting him being an agility dog, should be restless and excitable but Sizzle was such an angel, he let them do whatever they want to perform on him. I am so proud of my little man. 

Result wise, VERY GOOD NEWS! Joao said Sizzle's heart is normal, the murmur he has is call FLOW murmur, he cannot find any abnormality in it and I do not have to worry at all, not a tiny bit worry! Everything is looking very good. The size of his heart is normal, his heartbeat is perfect. He also have a quick check up on Sizzle and said he is very fit and healthy, every bit of him is in top condition!

I was over joy with the result and you cannot believe how relief I am and I cried nearly all the way home, the tears of happiness! I know I am going to sleep well tonight and recuperate what I have lost over the last week! Nothing could make me happy other than my dogs are healthy!
