Sixth Save of Christmas: Stella

stella-2

Before my time at the CASPCA, I was suffering from a life-threatening uterine infection at Veterinary Emergency Treatment Services & Specialty (VETSS), in need of an expensive surgery, and was going to be euthanized. I was very sick and experiencing a lot of discomfort. A kind person at the emergency vet clinic offered to bring me to the CASPCA to see if they could save my life.


When I arrived at the CASPCA clinic, I felt terribly weak and was very quiet. My uterus was so swollen that I looked pregnant, and I was vomiting a lot. Dr. Anna Sims determined that I indeed had pyometra, and that I would need an operation to remove my uterus immediately.stella

This type of surgery can have severe complications, and can cost up to $2,000. Luckily, I was a very good patient, and the operation went smoothly. I was placed in critical care overnight and was closely monitored.

By the next morning, I was ready to eat some food and go on a short walk – very good signs! Within a month, I had recovered from surgery and even found my new forever home! Had it not been for the CASPCA, I would have died.

Now I live the good life of long walks and comfy beds with my new family.
