Interesting. I had no idea pacemakers for dogs was 'common'. This is the first I've heard of it.

Hope they had pet insurance and that this didn't qualify as a pre-existing condition.

i know many people who had pacemakers put in wnd withing a few days they wee back to their normal energetic selves. i think this is a wonderful thing. not only does it extend the dogs life but greatly improves thier every day lives which should be the reason to do thins not to just keep a sock animal alive with no quality of life

its amazing the things they can do these days...i would beg steal & borrow if it meant I could spend another day with my little puggies....I'm sure its an expensive procedure, but would you find a way if it were for one of your "human" family members who needed it??

I love that vet medicine is advancing so much. It is sad how expensive it is to extend the life of a pet when they can actually improve the life also.

Who would have ever thought a dog would be fitted with a pacemaker? I am all for it - as long as the owner can afford it. I would absolutely choose to buy one for my cat if he were in need of one.
