Both of these poor guys have recently had ultrasounds done on their hearts and both of them have been diagnosed with Pulmonic Stenosis. Pulmonic Stenosis is a condition where the blood cannot flow easily from the right ventricle of the heart to the pulmonary artery. This is a congenital defect and causes fatigue, chest pain, and shortness of breath.
It is important for Rangel and Vin Diesel to see a specialist so they can determine what type of treatment is needed to keep these guys happy and healthy and ready for their furr-ever homes. While often times surgery is needed in many cases medications are sufficient.
We are hoping Rangel and Vin Diesel can see the cardiologist at the next possible opening which is the end of October. Please help us get these guys heart healthy!
