Even though they were recently adopted by their foster mom and dad, we want to keep everyone up to date on Sadie and Reba. Both girls went to our vet yesterday and had their stitches removed and all was okay. Reba was still spotting a little, but our vet hopes it’ll resolve soon.
This morning, things were normal until suddenly Sadie began bleeding, A LOT. Her mom rushed her to our vet (she lives two miles away), and Doc immediately gathered her and took her to the back. Mom had to leave her for several hours so she could be worked on.
Sadie is full of abdominal adhesions and abnormalities. She had a blood vessel grow through her bladder wall into the bladder. The blood was being discharged out of her bladder. Doc also found another abnormal blood vessel and tied it off. The blood was coming from the bladder out the urethra. The surgery was difficult because of the location. Sadie’s mom is to watch her and keep Doc informed. He said he hopes, but she is not out of the woods yet. They have tried to remove all the adhesions that they can. She and Reba will go back next Wednesday, provided there are no more emergencies prior to that.
Please continue to keep these girls in your thoughts.
