All about Benson
This handsome 6-year-old Newf arrived in our care on December 10 and settled into his foster home nicely. He is a sweet and friendly fella' who has so much love to give. A typical Newf, he is pretty sure everyone he meets needs a good dose of drool on them and he happily obliges.
Benson's has a heart condition called Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib), a condition that can speed up his heart rate. We've taken him to a cardiologist for a full workup to come up with an action plan. At the moment his heart rate is normal and despite having this condition, his heart looks to be in good condition (size/shape). The plan, for now, is to continue to monitor his heart rate, and if it starts to increase then he would be started on medication which he would then take for life. At this point, Benson does not require medication and his cardiologist does not expect him to have serious issues given how well he is doing.
A follow-up cardio consult is scheduled for 6 months from now -- his adoptive family would need to be willing to continue with monitoring his health and taking him to cardio visits.
