Woof all, my name is Pablo and I’m a french bulldog. I am 5 months and 3 weeks old and I am not feeling very well at the moment. I was born on the 28th November 2017, with 4 sisters and 1 brother. On 3rd February my mama surprised my daddy for their anniversary with me, i chose him and he chose me. They brought me to my new home and made me their baby boy. Which by the way is the best, they spoil me rotten and i have a big sister who is the coolest chick, i dont have to even ask for treats.. i just get them!
On my routine 2nd injection the vet found a heart murmur. He told mama and daddy this can be common in puppies like me, so told me to come back in two weeks. On that second visit the vet confirmed it, mama and daddy were so worried. But they kept me close and told me everything would be ok, they love me they wouldn’t let anything happen to me. I was sleeping alot and got out of breath alot, especially when i saw another dog or got lots of attention from people... apparently i am very cute and handsome.
I was referred to a doggy cardiolagy specialist for an ultrasound. Before i went to the specialist i started to get out of breath more, i didnt feel like walks. I just didn’t feel good. It turns out i have heart disease, its called Severe Pulmonic Stenosis. One of the valves in the left side of my heart is blocked, this means the right side of my heart has to do all the work. It has made the right side of my heart enlarged. This means the oxygen levels in my blood is very low, which is why i struggle to breath and i am always tired... i don‘t even feel like playing anymore. Last week mama and daddy took me back to the specialist as I needed to have a procedure called a balloon valvuloplasty. This is when they insert a balloon in my valve to expand and clear the valve in my heart. It didn’t work, they tried their best but my heart became so weak they had to abort. The vet was very upset, i think he loves me now. They put me to sleep at 9am and didnt wake me up until 3pm. I really didnt like it, i missed my mama and daddy so much i was there for two days. Mama and Daddy looked very upset when they picked me up, they told me i have made their life so much better, they wouldnt change me for the world. I still feel very unwell and i am very scared, it’s very difficult to breath sometimes. It makes mama and daddy panic, they soothe me when i feel like this. Mama lets me sleep with her and Daddy always makes me feel better.
So now i am going to need heart surgery, otherwise i don‘t think i have very long to live. I love life, i love food, i love playing, i love people and i love other dogs. I even like cats, i dont love them. There is only two places in the world that do this and one is in London at the Royal Veterinary College. Mama and Daddy say i have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I am only a puppy, i have my whole life ahead of me. I want my Mama and Daddy to see me grow, to play with me, i love going for walks and meeting new people. I like it when people fall in love with me.
The problem is the heart operation costs lots of money. I know Mama and Daddy don’t have all that money. So i need help, can you help me please?
Love and Frenchie Kisses
