Ms Paws undergoes surgery today

Ms Paws, the critically ill puppy we took in this past week, needs your good thoughts and vibes.

The veterinarians at Cornell University Companion Animal Hospital have been unable to place a traditional feeding tube even with a lighted scope due to the stricture’s tightness.

Ms Paws has been receiving amino acid therapy and handling it well, along with IV hydration with dextrose.

The anesthesiology department feels she is stable enough for general anesthesia, so the surgeons will be operating today to place a PEG Tube which will allow her to receive the nutrients she needs to grow bigger and stronger for the PRAA surgery. To read more about Ms Paws’ journey, please go here.

Please keep this little fighter in your thoughts today and send lots of positive vibes while we await word that she has made it through surgery. To donate towards her mounting medical costs:

Prefer to send a check? Mail it to us at Pets Alive, 363 Derby Road, Middletown, NY 10940. Please write “Ms Paws” on the check.

Thank you so much for your help! We are truly grateful for your support.
