Lassie was surrendered, along with many other dogs, by an overwhelmed breeder shutting down her business. Lassie was picked up by Dog4U, Inc. volunteers from over 3 hours away and scheduled for an immediate spay at Spears Creek Animal Hospital. Her spay procedure was among the most difficult surgeries the vet has had to do since vet school. Lassie bled profusely and her uterus was in terrible shape from having been bred. While Lassie was supposed to have a dental cleaning done at the same time, she had been under anesthesia too long and the veterinarian opted not to do the dental. All seemed well until five days later when Lassie’s spay incision opened up and internal sutures started to pop out, the staples not holding well due to the amount of granulated scar tissue forming from the additional exploratory surgery done during her spay to stop the excessive bleeding. So off Lassie went to have her belly re-stapled and re-sutured on a Sunday. Lassie also walks with a somewhat funny gait, we will have this more thoroughly checked out once she heals fully from her spay procedure. Lassie has a long road ahead of her before she will be ready for adoption. Please consider donating to her cause or sharing her fundrazr today. Dog4U, Inc, is a volunteer run 501 c 3 no kill non profit animal rescue; our Tax ID # is 20-5311280. Thank you for your support! www.dog4u.org or www.facebook.com/Dog4uinc
