Frida is an adorable and spunky gal who is seriously loved by her new family. When Frida arrived under the care Underdog Railroad Rescue she was placed in a foster home. We knew she had a heart murmur, but what wasn’t known at the time was how bad it was. With a vet check and tests, we found that Frida has a serious congenital birth defect. This places her in the position of developing congestive heart failure or other complications without intervention. According to the vet-specialist, Frida is a great candidate to have a surgical procedure completed. The diagnosis is Congenital Patent Ductus Arterioles (PDA), and the procedure costs between $2500-$2900 (which includes hospitalization).
Frida is living a full and happy but Frida’s heart condition, has her on the fast track to congestive heart failure, and without surgery, her life would be short and uncomfortable. Frida looks forward to a long and healthy life where she can run without worry.
Please, if you can, make a donation to URR’s Vet Fund so we can provide support to Frida and other Underdogs like her who need medical attention.
With love & happiness...
