Heart issues

Our Oliver is just a year old. When we brought him home from the breeder we found that he had a heart murmur. The other pups form the litter were fine and we opted to keep Oliver

Now at a year old we have conformation that his tri cuspid valve is deformed and his pulmonary valve is not working properly. The vet specialist is suggesting that a valve balloon valvuloplasty be performed on the pulmonary valve. It is hoped that it would take pressure off of the tri cuspid . The right side of his heart is quite enlarged.

Has anyone had experience with this type of procedure or any heart procedures?

Thanks,

Lorraine

I don't, but my heart goes out to you. You have to trust your vet. If You don't, get a second opinion! Hope it goes well!
I'm so sorry Lorraine, but I can only offer hugs no info. :ghug:
