Belle just had heart surgery at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Brady diagnosed Belle with an inherited heart defect called Patent Ductus Arteriosus during her first puppy visit. The Ductus Arteriosus is a channel that allows blood to flow through the puppy's heart while still in the womb. That channel is supposed to close when a puppy is born so the normal circulation of the heart can take over. Belle's did not close and she could have died of heart failure. The surgeons at the college successfully closed Belle's open channel and she is back home acting like a normal puppy!
