Second Pacemaker Implant Keeps Minnie Chasing Cats K 1 BANKAMf RICARD Seiko 1976 FOR YOUR VARIED LIFE, A VARIETY OF WATCHES BY SEIKO. THE CHRISTMAS GIFT PALOS HEIGHTS, 111. (UPI) - A year after her second pacemaker implant, Minnie appears to have fully recovered and doctors predict she could survive to the ripe old age of 14. Minnie is a miniature schnauzer, the 10-year-old pet of Shirley Garness of this Chicago suburb. The dog possibly is the longest surviving canine recipient of surgery generally associated with two-legged patients. In 1972, Minnie developed a condition with a long medical name which prevented her heart from beating at the usual frequency of more than 100 per minute. Medication helped for awhile, but then Minnie's pulse dropped to 30 beats per minute. At that point, barking would cause her to faint. Mrs. Garness says she learned from her veterinarian that a pacemaker implant was possible. She contacted Dr. Stanley Harris of Independence, Mo., who performed the implant in a one-hour operation October 1974. Minnie appeared to recover well from the rare animal surgery, with her pulse rate set at 80 beats per minute, but a complication caused problems a year after surgery. The pacemaker implanted in the pet was one of those recalled as defective by the manufacturer. And so it was that Minnie's pulse in creased from 80 to 220 - twice the normal rate - in November 1975. Mrs. Garness says the new pacemaker installed that month is superior to the old one, because it only issues a pulse when Minnie's heart fails to do so. The old pacemaker had kept Minnie's pulse at 80 beats per minute, even during sleep. Mrs. Garness says Minnie now chases cats and squirrels, races up steps two at a time and acts in most other ways like any other frisky pet. To those who say two pacemaker implants involved too much expense and effort for a pet, Mrs. Garness has a ready answer. "I have a very dear friend who said to me, 'That's a lot of money to go for a dog, blah blah,' and I said to her, 'If you ever have to wear a pacemaker, be thankful that she has one now, because that's where research is done," she said. She adds that she has never told anyone how much the operations cost, and that she doesn't know herself what the exact figures were. She says the cost was not important, and that she would do it again if needed. "She's been such a joy to me for all this time," Mrs. Garness said, "and this was my chance to pay her back." $100.00. hor py to n J No. YR011M-S250.OO.
