Sadie and her puppies

December 24, 2014

Sadie needed an emergency c-section earlier this month, as a little female pup was blocking her birth canal and didn’t want to come out. That little girl was in serious shape as we could see via ultrasound that her heart rate was getting dangerously low. We went to surgery quickly and were able to save all the puppies- 7 in all! Her owner just shared with us these awesome pictures of all of them thriving. Great job Sadie!

An amazing dog with an amazing family

Cash here has beat all the odds- he was diagnosed with a tumor on his spleen in August, and unfortunately, the vast majority of splenic tumors in Golden Retrievers are malignant and aggressive. However, after 4 months of Cash remaining asymptomatic, his family decided to pursue surgery to remove the spleen. His ultrasound and bloodwork revealed no evidence of systemic disease, so he had surgery last weekend. He is recovering remarkably well, and his biopsy came back today- it is a type of lymphoma that may be localized to just his spleen, in which case, his prognosis is good! Congratulations Cash and family! You deserved the good news!

This is Lola, a Japanese Chin who spent the last 2 nights with us after having ingested what we suspect was a toxin from outside. She went into severe shock and had a rough first night, but is doing much better now! Good luck on your continued recovery Lola!


A LONG-awaited homecoming

Smokey has been living with us for about 3 weeks. He had a urinary obstruction and ended up needing surgery to fully correct the problem. It has been a long road, but he has the BEST family and they never gave up on him! Smokey, we are going to miss you terribly, but are so glad you are finally back with your family!

This little miracle is Nina, aka Puppy. She was run over by a car this weekend and came in with a very large abdominal wall hernia and a couple of fractured ribs. After repairing her hernia in surgery, we found that air was leaking dangerously into her chest cavity causing her lungs to collapse. It was a harrowing few hours of correcting THAT problem, but by the next day she posed for this picture looking so much better! Continue to get well Nina!

We couldn’t resist taking a picture of Chloe here. She was here early this week for surgery to remove a tumor from her spleen. She is recovering well, and we are wishing for a good biopsy report here in a day or two! We are keeping our fingers crossed for you Chloe!

This sweet girl is Clovie

She ate the squeaker out of one of her toys and had to have surgery to get it removed. She has been a great patient, and we are sending her lots of get well wishes!

This is Bella!

She is an 11-year-old greyhound who has spent a lot of time with us this past week, but seems to finally be on the mend. We want to extend her lots of continued get well wishes! She is the sweetest greyhound!
