Kismet came to SSOMN needing life-saving surgery. He was born with a congenital condition known as Persistent Right Aortic Arch (PRAA). A band of fibrous tissue from the heart constricts the esophagus which doesn’t allow for food to pass through. Surgery is performed to remove the band of tissue.
The surgery was successful, and under strict care and management by his foster family, he has made a remarkable recovery! Kismet currently eats 3 meals each day from an elevated food bowl. His food is blended to a smoothie consistency; he can drink water normally without issue. We are hopeful Kismet can eventually eat a regular dog food without blending – he just needs time for his esophagus to heal.
He is playful, joyful, attentive, brave and dedicated. He loves to follow you around. He loves toys, wrestling with his furry foster friends and cuddling up with his favorite humans. Kismet is 100% potty trained and his foster mom even bell trained him – so he rings a bell at the door when he needs (or wants)to go outside.
Kismet is current on vaccines, microchipped and heartworm negative.
