On Wednesday, January 8th, Ava was diagnosed with an abscess in her liver. She was originally taken to the vet for lack of appetite, peeing blood, and lethargy. The abscess is uncommon and has caused elevated pancreas and liver numbers.
This sweet girl needs a costly surgery to remove the abscess in her liver. Her vet says it is a very guarded prognosis with surgery being her best chance at a successful outcome. Sweet Ava is only 5 years old!
If you are able to contribute anything at all, it would greatly help! Ava is currently in the ER hooked up to an IV for fluids and pain medication, fever watch, blood panels, ultrasounds, and other tests while she waits for surgery. Once the abscess is removed, the internal medicine vet will be able to determine which antibiotic to give her to help clear up her blood. This will mean expensive after care.
Any amount you are willing to share with Ava is greatly appreciated. Please help us to bring a spark back into Ava’s eyes. Deborah and Tom, as well as all of Ava’s friends would love to see her happy, healthy, and pain free again!
