Her Story...........
"Lil Bit" is a stray Sheltie we found running down the middle of a busy road. Although she had a collar on, she had no tags and was not micro chipped. After trying for several weeks, we never found her family and decided get her vaccinations done and have her medically checked out. During the examination, our vet found a skin condition, an ear infection and believed he heard a heart murmur. She ended up having an Echo-cardiogram and was found to have a Patent Ductus Arteriosis, or PDA, which is a congenital heart defect. We have learned that if this defect is found and corrected early, the patient lives a full life. In Lil Bit’s case, she is now 2-3 years old and surgery is a must. Without it, she is only expected to live a year or two more, so time is of the essence! Our vet helped us get in contact with the small animal hospital at Texas A&M because most vet clinics are not prepared for open heart surgery. The cost for this surgery alone is $3,000. This is where your help is needed! We can't afford this surgery on our own but without it, Lil Bit's prognosis is grave. Every dollar donated will go to her surgery and recovery, and every donation will be greatly appreciated!
