It really depends on why the heart is enlarged, to determine which medications are needed. So if the vet hasn't determined the cause of the enlarged heart, you may need to have more extensive testing done. Then the appropriate medications can be prescribed.

He said that she did have pneumonia but the 2 weeks before that he gave prednisolone & enrofloxacin to take that away so then we got a x ray done and he said there's fluid around the lungs not in it so he said that pneumonia cleared but probably her getting sick her heart problem just show up cause he thinks her mom or dad probably have a enlarged heart too so we have to wait for the other medicine in 5 days and prednisolone 5mg for all her life and then 6 months later he wants to see how she is in 6 months but she's still sneezing a lot sniffs the air and we went through 4 vets already i just want to make her happy again
