Behind the Foundation: Bella and Sophie

Our beautiful black and white 7-year-old Shih Tzu was diagnosed with a heart murmur during her routine wellness visit. She was initially given 9-months to live. After exhaustive research, calling experts around the globe, we were lead to Dr. Augusta Pelosi. In working with Dr. Pelosi we realized we shared a common vision to bring world class cardiac management and open heart surgery to the Americas, and we spent nearly six years fine tuning our vision. In 2017, NAVHC and the NAVHC Foundation were opened.
