Seri Needs Heart Surgery

Born in a puppy mill and then rejected because of a heart murmur, Seri was lucky to end up in the hands of National Mill Dog Rescue. Seri needs heart surgery immediately.

Our rescue team saved 3 month old Seri from a puppy mill just a couple weeks ago.  She couldn't be sold to a pet store because of a strong heart murmur and was to be euthanized.  We immediately took her for a medical evaluation and she was found to have a PDA - Patent Ductus Arteriosus.  This condition is totally operable. Typically the cardiologist can fix this and the dog has one follow up visit and never needs to be seen again – Seri will go on to live a normal life!  But first she must immediately undergo surgery and we're asking for your help.

The surgery will take place on Tues, Sept 24th at Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Ft Collins, Colorado.

One of our greatest prides at National Mill Dog Rescue is giving every dog we rescue the very best chance possible for a happy and healthy life and our fans play a huge role in making that happen. Please consider a donation of whatever is feasible for you to help Seri. We will keep you updated regularly on her progress.

Naturally, this is a huge surgery with all the typical associated risks. Please do keep healing thoughts around Seri. Many thanks to our fans who are always here with us in spirit and whose support allows us to make life-saving decisions for our dogs.

UPDATE! Seri's surgery was successful.  After a few days in the hospital she was ready to go back to her foster home and her foster family decided to immediately adopt her!

  5. So happy to hear Seri's surgery went well and her foster parents may be foster failures (I can so relate)!
