Mochi is able to tackle the duty of discovering his perpetually house! He’s an 11-month-old little (weighing solely 15 lbs) man who was surrendered to a vet after struggling two damaged legs which required surgical intervention. The surgical procedure was carried out and was very profitable.


Throughout Mochi’s time with the vet, it was found that he additionally had a grade 3 coronary heart murmur. Further diagnostics had been pursued on the Med Vet Specialty Cardiology Division which revealed that he has an inherited coronary heart defect often called pulmonic stenosis. This causes thickening of the pulmonic valve leaflets that lead from the best ventricle (proper pumping chamber of the guts) to the pulmonary artery (vessel resulting in the lungs).
