Gidget Needs Emergency Surgery!

Immediate support needed to try and save this sweet girl!

As many of you saw, Gidget joined the ABR family late last week.  She came to us as a neglect case very emaciated, weighing in at around 35lbs.  We knew Gidget needed our help and she was sure to have some medical needs by her physical appearance, but we did not imagine what that would be.  During her initial intake exam, our vets realized that she was a very sick pup and needed to be seen by Blue Pearl Vet Specialists (GVS).  On Monday, Gidget was taken to Blue Peral where she had an exam and ultrasound of her stomach in hopes that the specialist would be able to see what was causing her to be so skinny and in overall poor condition.  Based on the ultrasound, the specialist was unable to determine exactly what was causing these issues so exploratory surgery was recommended.  Poor Gidget wasn’t immediately able to have surgery because she was too weak, so she underwent a blood transfusion on Monday.  The transfusion gave her some strength and she received a greenlight today to proceed with surgery with one of Blue Pearl’s board certified surgeons. 

 Right as we speak, Gidget is on the operating table and we had to make a decision to save her life.  Early into the surgery, they determined that Gidget has a LOT of string intertwined throughout her intestines!  And worse, it appears that she has been in this condition for a long time L.  The procedure for removal of the string will be very involved, invasive and costly.  So first, we are asking for your prayers and healing thoughts as the vets try to save Gidget and next, we need your financial support to help cover this life saving surgery. Our estimated bill is in the range of $6k to upwards of $10k if there are complications!   We just can’t turn back on Gidget now.  She is very young and sweet, and she certainly deserves a chance.   In her short amount of time with ABR, we have seen her spirit shine through even in her severe medical condition, this little girl deserves a fighting chance.  ABR wants to do all we can to save her and allow her to find her own loving home with a family that adores her and vows to take care of her the way a family should!  

 Please considering helping ABR in our efforts to save Gidget.  Get with your kids involved, local schools, churches, troops, after school activities etc and lets all rally around Gidget and let her know she was worth it!  

We are requesting both prayers and financial donations from our faithful and caring supporters!   As always, no donation is too small.

Gidget is doing amazingly well! The hospital said that she is eating small amounts of soft food and has already made a small bowel movement. Your healing thoughts and prayers are working! We are hoping she will continue on this path, and will be able to get discharged later this week! Go Gidget Go!

Gidget is out of surgery. The surgeons pulled out pieces of fabric and string, but a lot of it is buried in her intestines. They cut her stomach and then about every three inches to access all of the debris. She has eight incisions total. We now wait and watch, praying for no complications during her recovery period. Gidget is not out of the woods. Please continue to send her healing thoughts!
