Another Zeus update
Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone is well and ready for christmas :loveya:
Zeus is doing good :roundnround:
He's now on three lots of diffrent tablets, the vets are really surprized he's as active as he is because of how bad his heart sounds, they expected him to have a bad cough, hardly able to walk, off his food etc... etc.... He's shocked them all (hes a fighter) :spinsmile:
He plays with Xena and Duke, they all play fight, he eats loads, hes doing really well.
Hes been going backwards and fowards to the vets to get his tablets right, hes got to go back in a months time to see how things are going.
He seems to know his limits ie..... when he goes for a walk or is playing, after a little while he just snuggles up to Me, Rob or one of the kids and goes to sleep for a little bit.
He cant do as much as Xena or Duke, hes not as active, but he has a good try.
We are really so happy with him hes such a lovley boy and we all love him to bits.

Take Care

Elaine & Rob

Re: Another Zeus update
What great news about Zeus! He has a very strong name so perhaps that is why he is such a fighter!

Do Xena and Duke make allowances for him - they say dogs are pretty intuitive when it comes to working out illnesses?

Glad he is doing so well though

Hi Elaine and Rob

That is wonderful news about Zeus.

They certainly are a fighting breed aren't they!!!!

What grade heart murmer does he have? We were quite lucky with Henry as we were told he had a heart murmer at his first visit to the vets but it could not be detected on his next visit, luckily it was the type that a lot of puppies have but grow out of.

You have been through so much with your little boy, I hope he continues to get better and that he gets the right medication that suits him.

All the best for the new year

Hi Everyone :wave:

Zeus has got a grade 4 heart murmer, it is bad but looking at him you wouldnt be able to tell.
Xena and Duke do seem to know that Zeus is ill, when they are all playing and Zeus gets tired they just leave him to rest.
Xena also seems to know that Zeus is deaf too, i ask her to take Zeus out side and she pushes him towards the door, she also does it with Duke too, shes like a mother to them both, its lovley watching them all.

Wishing everyone a happy new year

Elaine, Rob
Xena,Zeus + Duke xxx :loveya:

Oh poor Zeus. Please keep us up to date with his progress and in the meantime I will keep everything crossed for him.

I am sure it is just a case of finding the right tablets to suit him and then he will be a lot better. A friend of mine took ages getting the right heart tablets for her dog, but now he has got them, he is doing just fine.

Give him a huge boxer kiss from Sasha!

Re: Another Zeus update
Hi :wave:

Went to the vets today, with Zeus wobbling in with his tummy full of fluid (poor little baby) :sad:
First he got weighed, he has put some weight on even tho it dont look like it, and the vet said that for his weight he wasnt on the right dose of tablet.
She has now increased one of his tablets and hes back to the vets in 2 weeks to see how things are going.
Hes a little fighter :spinsmile:
Unfortunatly long term isnt looking too good for Zeus :sad:
All we can do is give him lots and lots of love and keep trying with the tablets.
The vet said he isnt in any pain, hes also still eating really well and he hasnt got a cough but because of his heart condition the food he eats isnt making him fatter, its just keeping his heart going.
He still sometimes plays with Xena and Duke but thats getting less as time goes on :sad:
Ill let you all know how hes doing, thank you all for your support :loveya:

Poor wee guy. Its good to know that he isn't in any pain though and it sounds like the vets advice to give him lots of love is totally unneeded - I think you already have that totally sorted!

We are all thinking of him, please do keep us up-to-date with his news.

It's now just a matter of time and doing whats right for Zeus.
I took a lovley picture of him last week but i cant put them on on my computer so ill get Rob to post it under this message.
Thank you everyone for your support and warm wishes :loveya:

Dear Elaine & Rob

So so so sorry to hear about Zeus' condition. I have been in your situation and it is the hardest place to be.

He certainly looks peaceful in his photo, looked like he was lapping up some sun rays.

I wish you peace, comfort and strength through this difficult time and know that all of us are thinking of you and Zeus.

Big hugs to Zeus, and of course to Xena and Duke!

Take care

Hi Elaine & Rob

So Sorry to hear about Zeus - hopefully with the passing of time you will be able to look back fondly on your time spent with Zeus. I know Zeus was fortunate to have spent his time with you and certainly had the best care possible and more importantly a family that really loved him.

We are all thinking of you, happy memorys should always be cherished and will hopefully ease your pain as the days go by.

Take care, Paul

I am so sorry hear about Zeus. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes, I cannot imagine how you must be feeling.

Zeus may have had a short life but i am sure he couldn't have had a happier one.

To be totally adored and to be around two other boxers, what more could he have asked for.

We are all thinking of you.

Re: Another Zeus update
Hi Everyone

Thank you all for your messages :loveya:
Zeus was such a lovley dog and we are glad that he spent his short life with us, we gave him all the love we had, in return we have now got some lovley memories which we'll never forget.
He was so brave and such a fighter but in the end his body just couldnt take anymore.

Xena and Duke are both well, It seems to have affected Xena more than Duke, she sniffed around looking for Zeus a few times and now she just wants lots of fuss and cuddles.
Duke looked for Zeus too but hasnt really showed any signs of change.
Hopefully in time and with lots of cuddles and love Xena will feel better too.

Thank you all again for your messages, i'll start posting a bit more again when i feel a bit better.

Take care
Elaine, Rob
GREAT BIG HUGZZZ & KISSES from
Xena & Duke :loveya:
