Help M.O.M.S VA make another miracle story...
Gabby is 4-month old puppy who needs a life-saving surgery on her heart within the next 30 days. Please consider making a donation of any amount to help cover the veterinary costs so that we can save her life.
Gabby was born in rural Virginia with a Stage 4 heart murmur, otherwise known as a PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus). Her puppy check-up uncovered the heart murmur and then an echocardiogram confirmed that an open valve in her heart threatens her life. The valve should have closed before Gabby was born.
In order to live, Gabby will need surgery within the next 30 days. Without the surgery, Gabby will most likely succumb to heart failure by the time she is a year old. The surgery could cost anywhere from $2,700 to $3,300 and we are hoping you can help us raise the funding to save Gabby.
Gabby’s surgery is involves opening up her tiny little chest and going through her rib cage to tie up the valve. According to the veterinarian cardiologist, this surgery has a 90%-95% success rate and with her current condition, we are confident she won't run into any future issues with the valve. After 2 weeks of recovery, she should be ready for her spay, and then ready to meet her “furrever” (forever) family.
Gabby is a beautiful puppy who deserves to grow into a beautiful dog. She is a rough-and-tumble little girl who barely shows any sign that her heart is working overtime. She's just as lively (if not, more) as her littermates and has so much fun playing with her foster siblings. If we can save her, she is going to make someone's life so incredibly happy for years to come. She has so much life and love in her.
Between her foster momma and MomsVA, we are going to work so hard to save her...we just need your help. Help us make another miracle. Please donate today and encourage others you may know who would want to help. Whether large or small, all contributions are needed.
