Poor Trouble, a sweet senior girl, was not looking for Trouble but it found her. Her elderly human mom died a year and a half ago, and her human dad just died. Sadly he was unable or unwilling to care for her during that period and she had no vetting whatsoever. She was only eating hot dogs and is quite obese. More troublesome (pardon the pun) was she has a horrible abscessed tooth which literally caused a hole underneath one of her eyes and it was infected and oozing pus since it went unattended probably for over a year. No one left in the family wanted her but a Good Samaritan rescued her and brought her to DRNA. We put her on an antibiotic to address the abscess infection and the dental went well, but a cloudy urine with no evidence of kidney stones upon x-ray examination made the vet suspect a bladder tumor, and an ultrasound revealed one. So right after her extensive dental work she had to go right back in for the ultrasound and then bladder surgery to remove the tumor. She really needs your help. No amount is too small...all donations are grateful accepted! Trouble is a sweet girl already already showing some signs of progress just getting into a healthy environment and getting the proper nutrition. She was too ill to be transported from WV to her foster home in VA until after her dental surgery and then her bladder surgery, but we are hopeful she will feel much better after she recuperates from both. Stay tuned for updates as we work together to nurse her back to health and find an awesome forever home for this precious girl. Thank you in advance for your generosity and being willing not only to open your hearts but also to open your wallets to help this dear girl. Trouble says woof and she loves you very much!
