Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA)

There are a number of anatomical structures that arise as a puppy fetus develops, but then disappear or change before or shortly after birth. This makes sense, as a fetal puppy (just like a human fetus) is living in a liquid environment, with many of the bodily functions provided by the mother, but then transitions immediately to a self-contained, breathing newborn puppy. Patent Ductus Arteriosus is in the category of conditions where one of those necessary fetal structures remains after birth, when it should have naturally gone away or ceased its function.

In the normal dog, the pulmonary artery delivers blood to the lungs, where it is oxygenated and returned to the heart. The oxygen-rich blood is then pumped into the aorta and delivered to the body. However, a fetal puppy is not breathing... in fact, the lungs are basically collapsed... and its blood is getting the necessary oxygen from the mother. Therefore the body has a mechanism to divert that blood flow so that it bypasses the lungs and goes straight to the body. That mechanism is the Ductus Arteriosus, a "shunt" (bypass) from the pulmonary artery to the descending aorta.

Akita
I've owned 2 male Akitas. They've both been very healthy, low maintenance, friendly to humans, have lived with other pets but are NOT good with other males. Don't require a great deal of exercise.. A walk twice a day is plenty. Mine chew ice cubes after a walk. Neither of them showed any real interest in chewing anything else, but this has proven to keep their teeth and gums healthy and it's kind of funny, too. Can't sing their praises enough. Wonderful family membe

Coton de Tulear
My frenid Joan in My frenid Joan in Toronto was featured on Dogs With Jobs in Canada about 10 years ago. She had´╗┐ a standard poodle named Morgan as her narcolepsy service dog, and to our knowledge he was the first in the world. Joan now has Shaba as her service dog. Because the collapses in narcolepsy are actually paralysis (cataplexy) rather than sleep, Shaba's job is to drag her to a safe place when she's going to collapse, and stand over her and protect her while she's down.
