Zoey is a 5 year old Maltese from Los Angeles, CA.  Zoey was diagnosed in July of 2016 with MVD and it was determined her heart was very enlarged and she had a murmur of a grade 3/4, she was at stage B2.   Zoey was stabilized with drug therapies until her surgery date which was October 26, 2016 at the Bozon Clinic in Versailles, France.  Today, Zoey remains in stable condition and had a great checkup at her 3-month postoperative appointment.  Her heart size and reduced regurgitation have remained steady since she left the clinic in France and is now cleared for normal puppy activity.
