Friends have asked if they could help us with the cost of Munchkins medical care & upcoming surgery. Without surgery her health will continue to decline & her time with us will be limited. Our little Munchkin has been diagnosed with a liver shunt. A liver shunt (portosystemic shunt or PSS) is a blood vessel that bypasses the liver, carrying blood from the stomach, intestines, pancreas, and spleen to the heart before it has a chance to be filtered by the liver. This allows toxins ,protein, sugar, & bacteria to go to to the heart, brain and other organs. Surgery allows the shunt to gradually close & the blood to flow normally through the liver. Not all shunts can be treated surgically. Munchkin has an exterior shunt and is a good candidate for surgery. There is a near 90% success rate and after surgery most dogs will live a full & normal life. We want to give Munchkin a chance to live a happy normal puppy life, the cost of the surgery & tests are expensive. We've already spent $2,000+ & are facing approx. $4,500 more. Please keep Munchkin in your prayers & if you feel led to help financially you can do so through this site. Every donation will help and be put toward Munchkins care. **We will also be selling sea glass, & listing some auctions to help with costs. we will add that info soon. Thank you & God bless <3
