Mong is an 11 year old Maltese from Pyeongtaek, South Korea.  In November 2016, Mong was hospitalized with pulmonary edema and diagnosed with a chordae tendineae rupture and Mitral valve disease.  Last summer, Mong's brother passed away so his parents want to save him more than anything.  In Korea, there was no information on the valve operation but research on overseas sites revealed that the operation was available in Japan. Mong's owners immediately began the Japan quarantine process and during the waiting period, his heart condition has gotten worse causing arrhythmia and syncope.  Mong is scheduled for surgery at JASMINE in Japan on August 7, 2017.  He currently is in stage B2/C and we wish Mong a stable condition until his surgery.
