    DefaultPDA-patent ductus arteriosus

    I have a 6 year old lab with PDA. Most of the time this is corrected as a puppy. Apparently hers was not found until I got her and noticed her breathing. She belong to a lady with cancer is all I half about her history. Last week we went to Mississippi State and now we need to go to Auburn. Everything I read and what the Dr at MS said was that she did need it closed , but it was a risk. She could die on the table or we could have it done and she still would not improve. Her heart is very enlarged because of this. I am so torn about what to do. She is on meds now and is very stable. Has anyone ever had a lab this age with pda and could offer me any experience? I have only had her 6 months but I love her so much !
