A couple of months ago we rescued Elizabeth , a senior dog in a horrible state;
She was skin and bones she was straying alone in the streets , beaten up by stronger stray dogs she did not know where to go…
She was there , in the middle of the highway , staring with dull eyes.
Her skin eaten by mange was the absolute witness of her torn out systems…Adding to the massive deterioriation of her body , she had a huge tumor hanging off her back.
She has been immediately admitted to the clinic for further diagnosis.
After the first assessment, the doctors operated her vagina prolapsing out ; the entire wall has been turned inside out leaving it open to infections and causing Elizabeth a huge discomfort.The prolapsing vagina or uterus is a serious condition that needs to be assessed meticulously.Many hormonal imbalances as well as physical trauma ( forcing ) may be at cause.
Her hormonal imbalances were adressed by another clinic a few weeks later in depht to make sure we don’t have another bad surprise. However the news were bad : her thyroid levels were a mess , she would have to go through a lengthy therapy in the clinic and use medicines all her life.
Elizabeth is a senior, the effectiveness and the choice of the treatment we provided her did NOT depend on her age, she received all the necessary treatments that a patient in her condition should be receiving…
The reason we are getting into the details of Elizabeth’s rescue and treatment is to give access to a level of information that would enable you perceive the details of her condition.
A couple of weeks ago Elizabeth was rushed to the clinic again : a large mass had again came out and the picture was truly bad …
A giant mass had grown inside her body and finally had found its way out in the most painful way.
Elizabeth was under MORTAL RISK.
She had to be operated right away , cutting the mass out , and sealing it completely.Whilst taking the huge mass out we also saw on the operation table that she had tens and tens of small ones inside, waiting to grow just as big as this one….
Pieces from the mass have been sent for further diagnosis.What seemed to be spread all over her body were tumors called ‘’leiomyoma’’ . These are tumors that are usualy benign but attained this size and in a senior dog , they need to be taken seriously.
Elizabeth had her surgery right away as we were racing with the time.
Her operation was one of the most moving times we have had. Elisabeth’s anesthesia had to be performed very meticulously as she is a senior.We were there listening to her breath carefully , knowing well the risk had to be taken, otherwise she would just not make it.
Elisabeth has many years ahead of her even though she is 9 years old , years that would make her very happy if only we reached out our care and help.
Please consider helping us giving Elizabeth what she deserves , she has been through just too much .
Thank you !!
