Monty: December 2013
...by Lise & Rick M.
It was just after Christmas 2013 that my girlfriend, Lori, who raises toy
poodles phoned me to let me know she had a very sick puppy that was about 4
months old at the time. We named the puppy Monty and he was diagnosed with
a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), which is a heart defect that he was born
with. Without correction of the PDA, Monty could develop congestive heart
failure, a complication of heart disease, and die within a year.
