Nicky was presented to us at 17 weeks of age and diagnosed with a severe heart murmur. The owner could not take on the burden of care and turned the responsibility over to us. She was taken to Veterinary Cardiologist, Dr. Church, for an echocardiogram. Unfortunately, Nicky was diagnosed with 4 life threatening heart defects that cannot be repaired and are expected to result in sudden death or heart failure. Knowing this, her forever family adopted her and are giving her the best life possible and she continues to outlive all our expectations!!
