This beauty is RoxAnne, a 9-year-old beagle. RoxAnne’s mom brought her to the veterinarian in Gillette, Wyoming, for an ear infection, but while they were there, they also found out that she had a bladder full of stones.
If your pup is suffering from bladder stones, they may show the following signs:
If the dog’s bladder is obstructed by bladder stones, the bladder may rupture, which isn't a good thing. A complete obstruction is potentially life threatening and requires immediate emergency treatment. A urinary obstruction will usually be recognized in a dog that is straining to urinate without producing any urine, or is only producing small squirts of urine. You can learn more about bladder stones in dogs via VCA: Struvite Bladder Stones in Dogs.
RoxAnne's mom is disabled and is on a limited income. She knew that she couldn't afford the surgery for RoxAnne better, and it was necessary; so she applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help. Luckily RoxAnne had the surgery and is feeling much better now.
