    DefaultTreatment Plan for Wesley

    I just got off the phone w/his veterinary cardiologist, who I called to discuss this dewclaw removal. Which I'm probably stressing over more than I really need to.

    Here's where we're headed: Another round of the Holter Monitor, just to see where we are.

    Then.

    Consult w/the surgeon and have the surgery done there, rather than at my local vet's.

    The thinking is that if -- and please, God, let this be a HUGE if -- something goes wrong, the cardiologist is right there and able to pop in.

    Which eases my mind about anesthesia a ton.

    I trust my local vet 100%. But the addition of his cardio expert being right onsite during the procedure make me feel a lot better about the whole thing.

    Dan, that plan sounds quite good, very reasonable -- much safer than having your local vet do it.

    I think you're going the right route. I sure would ease my mind to have the specialist on hand, too. You're in my thoughts, Wes and Dan!

    I think it's a very good plan! Especially with Wes' heart quirks. It's what I would do.
