Meet Arnie! Arnie is a distinguished gentleman of 11yrs. He is a Chihuahua but not exactly your typical Chihuahua. He is very friendly, calm, and affectionate!
He does have severe dental disease and is in desperate need of dental work but he has a 4/6 heart murmur and is heartworm positive so his heart needs to be evaluated first. Arnie does also have bilateral luxating patellas but since he is a little guy his body is able to cope with them without surgery.
Arnie will be needing an echocardiogram done before he can safely be anesthetized. Can you help Arnie get his heart checked?
