Help Henry

Henry is a unique and curious three and a half year old, one-eyed, pug. She spreads smiles and laughter just about everywhere she goes. In her spoiled life she enjoys cuddling, bananas, watching “birdies” from her window seat, the beach and unfortunately eating just about anything she can fit into her mouth.

Tuesday afternoon we found out she had gotten into a bag of coconut flour. After a bit of research, clean up and some funny pictures of her, we discerned that her stomach might be upset, but it should’ve passed with no problem. Four hours later, I received a call informing me that she was uncontrollably vomiting and defecating all over the house. We rushed her to the vet where she was given fluid and anti nausea injections and were sent on our way with the instruction to not feed her for at least four hours. After coming home and settling in Henry’s condition only worsened and she was admitted to the hospital over night. This morning we were told that everything seemed fine and Henry was scheduled for release this evening. But about four hours ago, the vet called and told us that she needs emergency surgery. After more vomiting, the vet decided to do another X-ray. She discovered a foreign object blocking her digestive tract, keeping her from passing anything. She was in immediate danger of her intestines rupturing. Money is very tight between Megan and I, and it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could donate to help out with these expenses and bills. Surgery alone was almost $3,000 and we’ve already paid at least $1k toward X-rays and medical care. Anything would really help us out. Thank you so much for all the love.
