Pregnant mom dumped at shelter with a dead baby in birth canal
Sheba was rushed into an emergency to try and save her life! She is in very critical condition. Sheba was left by her owners at a shelter in labor and they said she already gave birth to 2 dead babies. This is why you SPAY and NEUTER your pets guys!
She was rushed by Dallas Dog RRR to their emergency vets where they got heartbreaking news. Sheba had another dead baby in her birth canal and an ultrasound discovered 2 more very faint heartbeats still in her uterus.
Sheba has a very severe septic peritonitis from being in labor for the past few days and a dead fetus stuck in the birth canal. She had a second abdominal surgery to flush and drain abdomen. Doctors have placed a JP drain to allow for the infected fluid to drain from her abdomen. Unfortunately, the infection in her abdomen has caused adhesions (scar tissue) to form between her organs. These adhesions were broken down, but there is a very high chance they will continue to form if we can’t get infection under control.
The goal is for each day for there to be less fluid in her drains and her blood work numbers to improve. Sheba is very weak in her rear legs at this time. We are unsure if it is just from pure exhaustion or from damage to the sciatic nerve from the puppy stuck in the birth canal for so long. Sheba is in very critical condition, but is a fighter.
One baby survived after a Caesarean and is called Uno. Please help support her only surviving baby and Sheba’s emergency surgery! She has lived through torture the past few days and this is no way a momma should be treated! Please help!
