Wiley is my 10-year old Miniature Schnauzer who has developed restrictive pericarditis.  The recommended surgery has very good success rates and will add quality years to Wiley's life.

About restrictive pericarditis: basically, the sac around Wiley's heart has become fibrous and hardened which minimizes his heart's ability to function efficiently and causes trouble with his breathing.  Wiley saw a cardiologist at Purdue University and he recommended that Wiley have a surgery to remove the sac.  Without this surgery, Wiley's life will be much shorter and more complicated.

The surgery has been estimated to be $2,500-$3,000 without complications.  I thought about this situation a lot during the three weeks we waited for the appointment at Purdue and after speaking with the cardiologist and surgeon, I feel that this would be "worth" going through the surgery.  It isn't prolonging suffering, it is bringing Wiley's health back so he can enjoy quality years.

I appreciate any assistance in helping me cover the cost of the surgery!  I will be happy to keep you updated on Wiley's progress after his surgery.
