Senior French Brittany Needs Multiple Surgeries

Senior French Brittany, Mimi, Needs Multiple Surgeries

Mimi is a sweet senior French Brittany who was “owner surrendered” to a shelter in Southwest Texas. The shelter thinks Mimi was used for breeding and now that her breeding days are over she was of no use to them. 

Unfortunately, Mimi’s health is really poor. She is with our vet now. They have performed a thorough examination, and checked her lungs, heart, liver, and spleen, etc. through x-rays.

They are reporting the following urgent health issues:

Issue #1) Mimi’s most immediate concern is her respiratory problem. It seems to be a very bad case of Kennel Cough which has migrated to pneumonia. Associated with this is some nasty diarrhea which we are treating with antibiotics. We are waiting to see how she responds to the medication.

Issue #2) Mimi is suffering from a severe urinary bladder infection and is peeing blood. We are treating this with antibiotics as well. This too is a waiting game.

Issue #3) Mimi has a tennis-ball sized tumor on her right rear leg. This has been biopsied and confirmed as a mast cell tumor which is a type that can metastasize. Because these tumors have “tentacles” we will have to take large margins of her hind quarter around the tumor when we remove it.

Issue #4) Mimi has Pyometra which is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female’s reproductive tract. During estrus (“heat”), white blood cells, which normally protect against infection, are inhibited from entering the uterus.

Issue #5) Mimi has major dental issues. Many of her teeth are rotting and need to be pulled. 

Mimi is looking at an extended hospital stay to overcome these issues and recuperate.
 
Despite her multiple issues, our vet tells us her prognosis is good

Mimi is a very sweet girl and BRIT is committed to her recovery and finding her a loving forever home. Any help you can provide will go directly to Mimi’s hospital fund.
