Meet Sparkles- the smallest adult canine in the Austin Pets Alive! program these days. At just 3.8 pounds, little Sparkles packs a lot of sweetness! However, mini Sparkles was in a lot of pain when she came into our program and it was soon discovered that she had a very serious hernia in her bladder. After a brief time in foster, Sparkles' foster mother noticed that she was in extreme pain and was deteriorating fast, so Sparkles was rushed to the vet.
Sparkles went into emergency surgery and they had to tack her bladder up internally, repair her hernia and insert some mesh material in there to hopefully fix all her aliments. Sparkles is now staying overnight at the vet office, under surveillance to ensure she continues her recovery. Please send kind thoughts for little Sparkles and considering helping her through a donation for her care. Thank you!
