Teddy came to us in urgent need of life saving medical care. This poor boy had bladder crystals that had become lodged in his urethra, preventing him from peeing. Teddy's bladder was becoming dangerously full and his previous guardians could not afford the expensive medical treatment that Teddy required to save his life so they decided to surrender him to us. He needed immediate medical attention.
We opted to treat Teddy with surgery (a urethrostomy) to remove the crystals and prevent a blockage from ever happening again, ensuring that he would be adoptable following his recovery. The operation was a major one and Teddy had to stay at the vet for a week to recover and returned a few days later when he was in extreme pain. It took several weeks for Teddy to fully recover, but our sweet guy healed beautifully and now has a forever home of his very own (where he loves to take showers!).
