Yogi affectionately known as white golden retriever is my 16 month old beautiful German Shepherd girl. During a routine examination she was found to have a heart murmur which the vet suggested I check out. This was done yesterday where she saw a specialist and had a heart scan. At this point my world crumbled she has been diagnosed with Patent Duct Arteriosus and requires urgent surgery to correct. If the surgery cannot be done she will need to be euthanized as her chances of survival are zero. She is still a baby I have to try and save her. The specialist has given a good prognosis in that if the surgery is successful retriever should be able to live a completely normal life.
