Diamond's 2016 didn't start off as easily as we would have hoped for. She went to the vet for a scheduled dental surgery on Monday, January 4th. Abdominal x-rays were done before surgery because during her December visit, she was too wiggley to have them done. The xrays revealed a mass in her abdomen. Surgery was put on hold and an abdominal ultrasound was done. The mass seems to be attached to the spleen and surgery will be required to remove both the mass and her spleen to give Diamond the best outcome. This mass can rupture at any time, so we will keep a close eye on Diamond, and daily blood work, until her surgery.
This surgery was completely unexpected, but necessary to save Diamond and give her the chance to live out the rest of her life. Diamond came to us a year ago, skin and bones, furless with skin infections, ear infections, eye infections and 4 mammary masses that we had surgically removed last year. Diamond worked hard to come back from an awful previous life that left her zero reasons to fight to live. But, she came to our house, received great vet care and a lot of love and food, and her spirit shined through. She was our very own Diamond in the rough and she couldn't have more zest for her new life.
Please help the Mr. Mo Project cover the cost of Diamonds immediate medical needs. Her surgery will happen before the end of this week.
