Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) Study: Cats & Dogs

Jun 04, 2019

Patent ductus arteriosus (also called PDA) is a birth defect in the heart. It is caused by incomplete changes in the heart’s circulation when a dog or cat is born. This results in serious, life-threatening changes in heart function and size. This study will aim to collect data on procedural technique of the corrective surgery.

Owner Incentives

Discounted charges for the procedure are the incentive. A free initial screening echocardiogram is included with the first visit. The client is responsible for all other charges including the initial standard exam fee. The procedure is normally $7,000 but will be discounted and capped at $4,000.
