We live in a world where animals are little more than disposable objects, things you throw away and replaced the moment they need extra care or “don´t function properly”.
Fortunately, we also live in a world where a group of people, guided by the same ideals, can group together and pull resources for the greater good.
LEIA has been abandoned by her owners at a shelter´s door. From the moment we saw her we knew something was wrong, she can barely breath and her heartbeat is irregular. That must have been the cause. She was dumped the moment she needed them most.
We have spent the entire day doing tests, performing an electrocardiogram, a CT scan… LEIA´S SUFFERS FROM A CARDIAC TAMPONADE. HER HEART CANNOT FUNCTION PROPERLY DUE TO AN ACCUMULATION OF FLUID. RIGHT NOW ITS CLOSE TO COLLAPSING.
LEIA´S ONLY HOPE IS AN OPEN HEART SURGERY TO ELIMINATE ALL THIS FLUID AND WHATEVER IS CAUSING IT.
OPEN HEART SURGERY (PERICARDIECTOMY) is among the riskiest procedures anyone, let alone a tiny dog can go through. The smallest complication and LEIA could die on the operation table.
LEIA has an incredible surgical team by her side, but SHE CANNOT BE OPERATED WITHOUT YOUR HELP…. LEIA IS BEING STABILISED AND PREPARED FOR SURGERY… SHE NEEDS TO BE OPERATED AS EARLY AS TOMORROW…
P.S. After he is completely recovered LEIA is going to need an amazing home, a home where she will be able to have a wonderful, extraordinary life.. Please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you are that family.
