This sweet puppy was sent to the veterinary hospital after an unfortunate incident with another dog that led to a midnight visit to the emergency clinic with a bloated chest and labored breathing. After initially thinking she was only bruised the vet found a broken rib that had punctured her chest wall and lung. She was placed in an oxygen kennel to stabilize her breathing, and overnight became unstable so they intervened to release the air trapped in her chest. The next morning we were told after an x-ray that she needed surgery to repair a broken rib and perforated lung and insert a chest tube. The surgery went well and the next day the chest tube was removed with no complications. Ash is recovering well but we were left with a bill that we'd gladly pay but need some help with.
If we meet the full goal my boyfriend has pledged to run a 5k wearing a picture of ash and the name of every donator!
