We need your help to Fix Bumper's Heart Now!
Bumper is a little male french bulldog that arrived to B-Squad in late September. He had a reported grade 3 heart murmur and was quickly taken to our favorite cardiologist, Dr. George at the Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota. An echocardiogram was performed and it was determined that our little Bumper had severe pulmonic stenosis, an inherited heart defect that causes thickened pulmonic valve leaflets that do not open as well as they should. This makes it hard for the heart to pump blood to the lungs. This puts Bumper at risk of complications of fainting, fluid in the belly, weakness, collapse, and sudden death.
Bumper had a recent check up and it was determined that he needs surgery sooner rather than later to give him the best chance of a successful surgery and normal life. Bumper will require a surgery called a balloon valvuloplasty, this is the same surgery that Lizzo had back in February. It is a minimally invasive procedure in which a balloon is inflated across the fused valve leaflets to open them more, with the goal of reducing the severity of the obstruction.
They have Bumper tentatively on the schedule for surgery on Thursday, December 3rd. The challenge... we need to raise the estimated cost of surgery ($4,000) by that time to move forward in providing Bumper this life saving care.
Please consider becoming a member of the Fix Bumper's Thumper Squad and making a donation in the dollar amount of the heart you choose from his fundraising board below. $1 or $100... all the amounts are needed in order to help us provide this surgery for Bumper.
