BHRR’s Ava Marie is doing wonderfully! Once her fever went down, her appetite has come nicely back(not 100% yet but close!) and I am feeding her 5 smaller meals throughout the day as she is having some breathing plus eating at the same time issues still and she is almost fully back on kibble and not canned food and/or homecooking. 🙂 She is more active and herself now and so can get up to get that congestion moving. Dr. Liston was asking about her this AM(as we were getting close to scheduling that 2nd cruciate repair surgery) when I dropped BHRR’s Apollo off for his surgery and he thinks her pneumonia could well have been caused by aspiration of lake water at my relatives cottage. Very plausible indeed! I am now awaiting the other 200 Doxy tabs to come in that I prepaid for at Pharmasave on Wednesday as I only have enough at this time up until early next week. They told me Friday or Saturday and I hope so! Her Vet and Pharmacy Bills were over $1,000 and if any of her supporters wish to help her along with best wishes and some financial assistance, you can contact Kanata Animal Hospital directly (613) 836-2848 to pay by Debit, Credit Card or Visa/Mastercard under the account name of ‘Ava Marie’ under the ‘Birch Haven Rescue’ file or AMEX or PayPal funds to the account of or email transfer funds to OR you can mail a check to:
