Bitsey is a 1 yr old Maltese that we found on a busy street in New Orleans on February 4, 2014. She had been neglected, and was matted so severely that she had trouble walking. Bitsey had to be sedated to be groomed. Upon examination our Vet determined that she had PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriousus) a congenital heart defect. Today we brought her to LSU Veterinary Hospital to confirm the diagnosis with the Cardiologist. Because Bitsey is so small she is not a good candidate for the femoral vascular procedure so her best chance for survival is open heart surgery. According to LSU, the surgery will cost $3000.00 and she will have to stay in the hospital for a week to recover. Everyone says how cute Bitsey is but because of Bitsey's experiences she has some trust issues however, she is evolving more and more each day. Bitsey is beginning to show her true personality. Unfortunatley, we are unable to manage all of expenses that are expected, so we are asking for help to be able to afford Bitsey the life she deserves.

Our sincere thanks and we will keep you posted on her progress
