A couple of months ago, our vet found a bunch of stones in Dipset's urethra and urinary bladder. Because of the risk of infection, we decided to move forward with surgery. He also had a large, softball-sized mass on his abdomen that needed to be removed because its growth rate was steady and it was at risk of rupturing any day. On August 7th, a urinary catheter was placed and they attempted to flush out the stones. Unfortunately, they only got a few out and the rest traveled down to his urethra and were lodged there, creating a block that caused him a ton of pain, as well as posed a major health risk because he was barely able to urinate. After two days at home, he went to a surgeon to try another flush. This time it worked and the got all of the stones flushed into his urinary bladder. Then, they performed a cystotomy to remove the stones from his bladder. During all of this, a couple of his sutures popped from the mass removal and he got an infection on his abdomen, requiring him to stay at the hospital for three additional days / nights. He's back home now and on the road to recovery, but unfortunately we had only budgeted for the first surgery ($1200) and are at a huge loss for the rest ($4000). As many of you know, we also have a new baby at home, and two other pups, so funds aren't exactly a plenty. I have a really hard time asking for help, especially for money, and I wouldn't ask if we really didn't need it. Dip is my dude. He is 10.5 years old and I've had him since he was 6 weeks old. Thanks for reading.
