Gwen came in as a stray with her mother and siblings on September 15, 2021. Gwen was the smallest of the litter, and appeared healthy on intake. It was noted that Gwen had a grade 6/6 heart murmur under sedation. A heart murmur on a pet this young usually indicates a genetic defect. Upon her echocardiogram exam with Sonovet, she was diagnosed with Patent Ductus Arteriosus also known as PDA. If not corrected, Gwen is at risk of developing progressive heart enlargement and heart failure.
$2,500 is needed for Gwen to receive this life-saving surgery and we need your help. She may be small, but you can make a BIG difference!
Thank you for your generous contribution to help get Gwen that surgery she needs. After the surgery, Gwen will require time a foster home to heal and recover. If you are able to help Gwen recover in a calm environment, please email our foster team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Be a part of her recovery to a happy, normal life while she awaits her forever home!
