This album is dedicated to the young Great Dane Puppy Mill mama (about 18 months) that we have in our care.

She is not only skinny, recently had puppies, yet was dumped at a kill shelter with some very aggressive mammary turmours/growths/masses that we had no idea about until we picked her up. The poor thing………

She went in for surgery on Thursday August 6th for a spay and to have a mastectomy on the one mammary – gland is also now completely removed(per her Vet), remove all growths, masses plus tumours and to have them sent off for pathology.

She has had pre-op bloodwork including heartworm testing plus for tickborne diseases. She has been dewormed, microchipped, placed on revolution and is now on Deramaxx plus Tramadol for comfort.

We are all anxiously waiting fo the results of her tumours.

She has a drain installed in the one area and we are back in on Monday for a re-assessment/exam

All monies raised from the August 8th , Critter Jungle Dirty DAWG Wash shall go towards her mounting Vet Bills.
