Unfortunately from day 1, we knew that Lizzie had a wound on her chest which couldn’t be x-rayed or operated due to her pregnancy. Lizzie’s foster mum helped her nurse the puppies until they were strong enough to feed on their own. Little bubbas are now doing great, putting on around 700g a week.
Few days ago we have managed to finally investigate Lizzie’s chest wound under a general anaesthetic but all we got was bad news. A kebab skewer has been found in her chest and one of her lungs has been punctured. This means that Lizzie will now have to travel to a clinic which can perform a surgery and hopefully save her life.
Lizzie has been an amazingly brave dog and would love for her to be happy and healthy again.
