I hate that uneasy feeling. Jack is lucky to have you. Fingers crossed for good news at his appointment.

Keep us posted. Look forward to seeing updated Jack pictures.

We are much relieved that all the news about Jack's heart was good. Jack has been subdued lately - pretty much slept through some really loud and long fireworks in the neighborhood over the weekend among other things - and both Jeff and I were really anxious about this visit.

But all the news as good. The valve leak is basically unchanged, no enlargement of the heart, and the taurine and CoQ10 supplements have helped strengthen his heart muscle - the contractions of his heart were stronger. So we heave a huge sigh of relief and stick with what we are doing.

I have heard such good things about taurine in dogs with heart problems. CoQ10 I do have first hand results with it, which are all favorable.

So glad Jack got a good report.
