Luna's Emergency Medical Fund

Last night, August 16th at 9:45pm Luna was rushed to the emergency animal hospital in Thousand Oaks. She had vomited at home and wasn't able to stand on her own. Once she got to the vet she had lost control of her bowels and was listed as critical condition. The vet wasn't able to hear her heart so they immediately took a chest x-ray. The x-ray revealed that Luna had been born with a body wall defect that herniated some of her abdominal contents (intestines) up into her chest cavity and they were compressing her heart which is why they had a hard time hearing her heart and had limited her lung capacity as well. The hole would have to be surgically repaired and this morning at 11am Luna went in for surgery. The surgeon said that Luna did "really really really well." About 90% of her intestinal tract was up in her chest cavity as well as her gall bladder. The hole in her diaphragm had shrunk down to about the size of a plum and it was squeezing her intestines. So they sewed that all up and everything is in the place it's supposed to be. They re-inflated her lungs to better than they were before. Luna came out of surgery with 20 staples but is recovering very well. Unfortunately this life saving procedure has left her owners in a massive hole and they need our help. Those of you that have met Luna know how fun loving, loyal, and full of adventure she is. She is the most well behaved pup and she absolutely did not deserve this to happen to her. If you could find it in your heart to help, anything is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
