prognosis

in case anyone is wondering the rx for jackson is heart meds. apparently he has a murmur (just like me!) so we checked his heart out on ultrasound (just like me!) and he has a leaky mitral valve (just like me!) but that is actually not the problem. he also has a misshapen aorta which is not the problem either -- both of these things are very common and not serious. but what he does have that could be a problem is a slightly enlarged left atrium and the meds are supposed to arrest further enlargement.

he's going to be ok though.

i have to take him back for another ultrasound in 4 - 6 months. i really miss getting my veterinary care for free. but if i need a job this summer i might just be working at this place by then.
