Surgery had to be done immediately to remove the stone and get Pongo's health back on track. After the stone was removed, RHVH used laser therapy to help relax the bladder and start the healing process.
Because the family was in the process of moving, they were low on funds to cover the unexpected cost of Pongo's surgery. Fur Kids Foundation stepped in to make sure Pongo and her family stayed healthy and happy.
We are happy to report that Pongo was able to go home a few days and now continues on with her normal routine of laying around the house and playing with her family.
Please know that Pongo's bladder stone was only found because her family had scheduled an annual check up. Just as annual physical exams are recommended for humans, they are recommended for our pets as well. If your pet is older or has medical problems, he may need even more frequent examinations.
Preventing disease or catching it in its early stages is far better than treating it once it has had time to progress to a more severe stage. Preventive health care on a regular basis will help you do just that, and save you and your pet from needless suffering and a larger financial burden.
If you would like to help Fur Kids Foundation continue to help families with animals, please consider making a tax-deductible donation. The money stays in Campbell County, Wyoming and helps families during a time when they may not be able to afford adequate veterinary care.
