Prince was found running loose as a stray during those cold December days. He was brought to the local rescue who asked Midwest Pug Rescue - MN Division if we could care for him since it was discovered he was heartworm positive. The veterinarian did further investigation to see the extent of the heartworm infestation, but was concerned there were underlying heart problems. We brought him to the University of Minnesota's cardiology department on Thursday where he was diagnosed with Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia causing heart failure on the right side. They drained 2 liters of fluid. The picture shows the drastic difference it made. He is now on supportive medications, is being treated slowly for the heartworms, has good nutrition, and is being loved in a foster home. The cardiologist believes he still has 1-2 years of quality life to live, and the rescue is determined to help him to be able to fill those years with lots of love and happiness.
