Help! Etta our 8 mos old chihuahua has a C-1/C-2 Subluxation fracture! Etta started screaming in pain, seemingly out of the blue and the appearance of seizures.  We rushed her to our critical care vet and they suggested her symptoms were more like epilepsy so we got bloodwork and some medications then headed home. Etta appeared to be much better overnight but suddenly started exhibiting the same symptoms. Our foster knew something more serious was wrong with her.  We took her to one of our other veterinarians who did a series of x-rays that revealed the unstable fracture. We are heartbroken and have arranged her surgery to take place next week with a surgeon who specializes in this very delicate surgery in Tustin. C-1/C-2 Subluxation is a dangerous fracture of the cervical spine where the bone is broken and pushed upwards and compressing the spinal cord, this could result in paralysis and even death if not fixed urgently. We have raise most of what is needed for her surgery, but are still short $1,250. Please find it in your hearts to help us get Etta the surgery she needs. Her surgery is scheduled for next week. Please pray for Etta!
