Mercedes, Terrier Mix

Mercedes’ Story:

Mercedes was brought to Bethany Animal Hospital; her x-rays show a spinal fracture as well as a pelvic fracture. She will receive pain management and steroid treatments. Her films have been e-mailed to a surgical specialist friend of our vet for their thoughts. She does pee/poop on her own (that’s good!) and while she does not feel superficial pain in her hind limbs she does feel deep pain stimuli (also good). We hope the weekend on crate rest and medication will help.

Medical Update: Our little Mercedes slipped away from us this evening. We did everything we could for her, including letting her go in peace. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers and donations. Rest in Peace, Mercedes…
