I have a 5 month old, 4 pound rescue Pomeranian that has a heart murmur that the vet thinks is a PDA.

Has anyone had a Pomeranian or small do that has had the surgery for this?

Can anyone answer my questions, especially the success rate and pain/trauma?

What is the success rate for small dogs (4 lbs) for this type of surgery? What about for Pomeranians?
What is the recovery time from this type of surgery for small dogs?
How painful is the surgery/recovery?
What measures must be taken for recovery (Does she need to be kenneled? Do we need to take time off from work to monitor her?)
What is the long-term life expectancy for small dogs after this type of surgery?
