Peanut is a four year old Pembroke boy who got very sick around Christmas and had to have surgery for bladder stones.

January 19, 2014

One more new client to kick off 2014! Peanut is a four year old Pembroke boy who got very sick around Christmas and had to have surgery for bladder stones. Here is Peanut's story in the words of Corgi Mom Leah:

"My husband adopted Peanut, a 4-year-old Pembroke, from the Top of Texas Corgi Rescue in Amarillo, TX. Peanut received wonderful aid from CorgiAid for his initial vetting, and we adopted him in September through conversations with Top of Texas manager Gail Hanson (who is an angel for the good work she does with corgis). The past three months have been joyful having Peanut in our lives, but on Saturday they took a turn for the worse. 

My husband and I returned home from a family Christmas gathering to find that Peanut had thrown up while we were gone and was having difficulty urinating. It was very unusual behavior for our little man, so we took him to the emergency vet right away, where he was admitted for x-rays and catheterization. Over the next couple of days, his condition did not improve, so the vets at Nebraska Animal Medical Center recommended that we take Peanut to see a specialist for possible bladder surgery. So, yesterday (Wednesday, 12/11) we drove Peanut to the Kansas State University Small Animal Hospital. We met with several doctors, who agreed that the best course of action was bladder surgery to remove a collection of stones that had formed in Peanut's bladder. We gave them the go-ahead and scheduled the surgery for today. However, while they were performing an ultrasound to check for fluids, the doctors discovered a mass in Peanut's stomach that they aren't sure whether it's an abscess or a tumor, and if it's a tumor, whether it's malignant or benign. They recommended removing the mass during the bladder surgery, and we agreed. The surgery is taking place right now at the KSU facility, and later on today we will learn if Peanut's mass is cancerous or not.

As you can imagine, all of the testing and surgery and time at the vet is really starting to add up. My husband and I have been using a credit card to cover costs so far, but that will soon no longer be possible, as the estimates we're getting are starting to climb north of $4,000. But given the choice between going into debt and letting our little baby pass away, the decision was a no-brainer—we had to do everything we could to keep Peanut with us as long as possible. 

Regardless of the outcome, we're going to keep trying to bring Peanut to full health, but as a newly married couple, every little bit of help we can get would mean the world to us."

Peanut's bills exceeded the $3,000 lifetime cap for CorgiPals clients. I have set his fundraiser goal to $3,300 to cover the PayPal and Fundrazr fees. Poor little Peanut! Let's help his new forever family get him back on his Corgi feets and on the road to recovery!
