    Hi all,
    I am looking for advice/information on a grade 4/6 - 5/6 heart murmur in a puppy. I’m wondering what the possible cause could be and what the prognosis is? Does anyone have any experience in caring for a puppy with this level of heart murmur?
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    ask your Vet for a referral to a Cardiologist Vet. Also you need to let the breeder of your puppy know

    Thank you. I have been asked to foster this puppy as it’s current owner no longer wants it due to its condition. I don’t know much about heart murmurs. I’ll do my best to find out who the breeder was and make them aware that this poor pup has issues.
