Isabella at Home

The most popular patient at the U of M Small Animal Hospital is home again this afternoon, looking bright and alert. Aside from the shaved leg where she had an IV, and her shaved tummy because she had an ultrasound, you'd hardly know how sick she had been only yesterday. The staff at the hospital are amazed. They felt very pessimistic when they saw her yesterday morning, but now they feel pleased with her progress and offer an optimistic prognosis. The ultrasound revealed a large shunt outside the liver, which means it should be fairly simple for a surgeon to attach the appropriate veins to her liver in a couple weeks to get it functioning normally. Meanwhile, her liver has been partially working, so we should be able to keep her stable until surgery with a regulated diet and medications.

So, good news. Isabella seems to be on her way towards recovery, better than ever.

Good going Izzy. Hope the next visit to the doc has the same good results.

Hi, I was out blogging and found your site. It certainly got my attention and interest. I was looking for Canned Food information and even though this isn't a perfect match I enjoyed your site. Thanks for the read!
