Q. Hello, My dog, German Shepard has a major heart problem. Is heart is failing and we give Lasix, Fortekor and cardisure. Can I give him Fish oil?
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. Fish oil will not help unfortunately. I understand you want to do everything you can to help him but he is already getting all the medication he can possibly get for heart failure. I'm not going to lie, the prognosis is not good, the only thing that can be done to help him is adjust the doses of his medications from time to time (by the vet of course).
