BHRSC rescued 10 year old Maggie Mae from the shelter on Monday, September 8th. She was scared, dirty and very skinny. Maggie Mae was taken to the vet for the usual pre-adoption vet check, microchipping and vaccines. Yesterday afternoon, Maggie Mae began vomiting and an x-ray confirmed that poor Maggie Mae was suffering from bloat. She was immediately put on an IV and taken into emergency surgery. While in surgery, it was discovered that her spleen was folded over and had two tumors on it, so it had to removed to avoid further complications. A BHRSC volunteer quickly responded and she was transported to SoCal Vet Specialty Hospital for 24-hour critical care. The vet thinks she will need to be there 2 days before it’s safe to return to AHHB for daytime only care. We are awaiting the biopsy results and hoping that there are no further issues for this sweet hound. We are happy and hopeful to report that Maggie Mae made it through the night; her heart remained stable, no arrhythmia, and her blood counts remained normal. She is on pain meds and they plan to start weaning her back a bit later today. BHRSC had no choice but to put a deposit on a credit card to save Maggie Mae’s life.
9/14 Update: Great news to share with you all! Maggie Mae is eating and even better, her tumors have come back benign! Our girl will very soon be cleared by the vet and available to go to foster/adoption. We have received in outpouring of support for our girl through prayers, good vibes and some donations. Thank you to everyone that has helped Maggie Mae in your own way.
