So my newest addition a 11 wk old chihuahua puppy went to vet for her first shots..she has a level 4 heart murmer and PDA..

Without very expensive heart surgery she will likely not make it to a year old..i am.devestated and.dont know what to do..i cant swing 4000 into a puppy but i dont think i can watch her progress into congestive heart failure..

At this point we are exploring all the options but im feeling very bad for her..anyone have a dog with this condition?
