My friend has a German Shorthaired pointer that she took to the vet. She has 4 of these dogs altogether and the vet diagnosed one of them with Aortic Sub but could not tell her the severity of it. Reffered her to a specialist but she cant get into the specialist for about a week. The vet told her to keep the dog calm and not excited at all. I am looking for answers on what this dog is allowed to do and not do for the time being until we know more info. And any signs of whether she can find out how serious it is before she gets to the specialist as far as breathing patterns for more or less severe or other symptoms. Thanks for any and all help.
