April has come a long way since being welcomed to rescue in July. Up arrival, April's foster noticed there was a significant problem as April was leaking urine and straining when attempting to urinated. X-rays and an ultrasound quickly confirmed that April had a very large bladder stone and subsequent bladder infection. She began treatment immediately with pain meds, antibiotics, and anti-inflammartories. April had surgery the following week to remove the bladder stone and be spayed. Our veterinary team was taken a back by how large her stone was and the thickness of her bladder caused by YEARS of not having proper medical attention for this problem. Our hearts broke when the analyis of her stone came back as having been started likely years early from in infection that was never treated. The pain this sweet soul had likely been in for years absolutely shatters our hearts.
Sincer her surgery, April has been on anti-inflammatories to help with the chronic inflammation she had been experiencing. We are happy to report that the medication is working and April has regained control of her bladder and episodes of "leaking" urine have subsided. She will continue meds through the month of October and will be re-checked at that time for her health clearance for adoption.
April has been enjoying the good life with her foster family and two furry foster siblings. She has enjoyed playing the backyard, getting belly rubs, and exploring on walks and while at the lake! This girl is deinitely making up for lost time in the love department and can't get enough snuggle time from her family! We are excited for April's journey with B-Squad to be coming to an end and for her new life to begin with her forever family.
We are not currently accepting applications for April's adoption until she receives her medical clearance. As you can imagine, April's veterinary expenses have been significant to B-Squad.
