This nugget is Azzy, a 1-year-old Chihuahua mix. Azzy recently gave her parents quite the scare when her tummy was making her feel crummy.
“I love my Azzy more than anything in the world. She is my life, and keeps me grounded as I am an anxious person," Azzy’s mom said.
Azzy’s mom is a student, and her dad was recently injured at work and is only able to work part-time, which made Azzy’s tummy troubles even more bothersome. They applied with Fur Kids Foundation to see if they would qualify for help, and they did!
Fearing Miss Azzy may have a stomach obstruction, the vet did X-rays, but didn't see anything (thank goodness!). The vet than ran some more tests, which also came back inconclusive. So, the vet sent sweet Azzy home with some medication to help her tummy settle down. Azzy’s folks think that she must have had a stomach bug because she's feeling much better now!
