PRAA (Persistant Right Aortic Arch): Winnie

This 8 week old Soft Coated Wheaton joined us recently. She has PRAA (Persistant Right Aortic Arch) which if you have been following us know is what Lily Pad had. She needed surgery to fix the malformation and she may still have residual Mega Esophagus. The mega esophagus may or may not resolve over time. Currently she needs to eat in the upright position and continue to sit up for about 20-30 minutes after eating. She is on a strictly liquid diet of pureed canned puppy good that is eat to digest. She also has aspiration pneumonia and is on antibiotics for that. She is sweet as can be and will be feeling better soon!

Cost for her procedure was $3700.
