DUMPED AT A LOCAL SHELTER
She has two huge bladder stones!
A lady was adopting a dog at SEAACA Animal Shelter in Downey, California in early October when she noticed someone looking like they were dropping off a dog.
The lady, Fou, asked about the dog and the owner said she was going to have the dog euthanized. A vet had supposedly told her surgery would be very expensive, and the little dog was crying and peeing blood.
Fou convinced the owner to surrender the little dog, Princess, to her instead of turning Princess over to SEAACA.
RESCUED BY FOU
After Fou got Princess from the shelter she took Princess to the vet. This is where the vet confirmed two stones in her bladder close to her pelvis. It is extremely painful for Princess to pee and she needs to get them removed immediately.
WHO KNOWS HOW LONG SHE HAS HAD THESE HUGE STONES?!?!
The vet needs to remove the stones via surgery. VCA explains:” Surgical removal of bladder stones. This is often the quickest way of treating bladder stones; however, it may not be the best option for patients that have other health concerns, or in whom general anesthesia could be risky. With this option, the stones are removed via a cystotomy, which means that the bladder is surgically exposed and opened so that the stones can be removed. This surgery is routinely performed by many veterinarians and dogs usually make a rapid post-operative recovery. If the stones have obstructed the urethra, so that the dog is unable to urinate, an emergency procedure must be performed IMMEDIATELY to save the dog’s life.”
Also at this vet visit the doctor noticed Princess had some teeth that looked like they needed to be removed and she needs a good cleaning. Prevention of dental diseases is so important for future care of Princess.
This little Pomeranian is said to be 4 years old. She is a young dog that deserves to have a better life.
The vet is offering a discounted rate for the surgery and teeth cleaning that is actually quite low! Fou already spent over $100.00 on x-rays, and does not have the money for the surgery. Let’s help Princess!
