No time for a gem. We have a surgery needing done tomorrow in South Texas.
You may recall we took in a dog from a South Texas shelter who was an owner surrender. They thought he had a hernia in his rectum and they brought him into the shelter for euthaniasia. They called us.
Well, he had a polyp in his colon. Our regular vet tried to remove it and sent it to pathology where it came back as a pre-cancerous colon polyp. In 20 years we have never had this happen in one of our dogs. He could not get it all.
Yesterday, our Team Leader, Karla Carter, took Snowball to see a Board Certified surgeon, Dr. John Dahlinger, at Blue Pearl Specialty & Emergency Pet Hospital in Katy, TX
19450 Katy Freeway, Suite 200
Houston, TX 77094
The surgeon needs to go in with a scope to be able to get it all. Then he will be fine and ready for adoption. Right now, this polyp is bleeding.
At first, our vet thought Snowball was around eight years old,but after his dental, his eyes tell a different story. They think he’s more like four years old.
The surgeon wants to remove the rest of this polyp tomorrow, Friday morning. The estimate is for $1500.00-2500.00. These things usually end up on the high end.
I know it’s a bad time for this to happen but we need to raise these funds before tomorrow morning.
And I’m travelling and am not here to be able to send out matching challenges.
Is there anyone who can help this poor Bichon?
He is bleeding rectally.
Help is needed now.
All My Love, Robin

When I first saw this beautiful picture of Cheri Sisco’s “Humphrey”, I thought it was truly the epitome of what we do, and why we do it. I wanted to use this black and white picture of Humphrey, taken only days before his death due to congestive heart failure, to let those who may be new to Small Paws, know what we do and why we do it. Without Small Paws, Humphrey would have never known love. He would have died in a kill shelter, sick and alone. Because of Small Paws, and Cheri Sisco, he lived, he loved, and he smiled.
