[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A 7-month-old female, spayed border collie was referred to the Ontario Veterinary College due to a continuous murmur noted by the referring veterinarian prior to ovariohysterectomy. Auscultation confirmed a grade VI/VI continuous murmur. An echocardiogram confirmed patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). An Amplatz canine ductal occluder device was successfully placed for occlusion of blood flow though the ductus.
