A group of veterinarians in British Columbia has been successful open heart surgery of a rescued street dog several days. It was considered the first open-heart surgery that is performed in a dog. When the puppy was taken to the animal shelter for the first time, caregivers realized she was in danger and noticed that her abdomen was filled with fluid. Dr. Michael King and his fellow Canada West Veterinary Specialists (CWVS) were able to cope with a rare birth defect in crossing puppy , When the puppy was taken to the animal shelter for the first time, caregivers realized she was in danger and noticed that her abdomen was filled with fluid.They took Taylor for her to see the cardiologist Marco Margiocco, the CWVS, who made the dog a CT hagiography and ultrasound. That’s when the problem at Taylor, a membrane was retained in the right atrium and was hampering blood flow to the heart was discovered. This caused the fluid to accumulate in the abdomen of the dog. At first the vet tried to use a less invasive method to solve the problem but it worked. That led the team of veterinarians to choose to open heart surgery.
The amazing thing is that veterinarians had only two minutes to perform the operation or the dog suffer fatal consequences due to the lack of flow. The dog was wagging his tail eating and at night he performed the surgery and the next morning and was walking. A success.
