Mia was born without an anus and left on a chain.

Mia was born without an anus and left on a chain.

 

Mia was brought into rescue to get her away from the chain life which our hearts couldn't bear seeing. Rescuers soon discovered she was born with an extremely rare condition and had no anus and was defecating through her vulva. So, through no fault of her own, but a medical reason, Mia was left CHAINED OUTSIDE! Rescuers at Speak St. Louis knew she was brought to their organization because they would do everything they could to help her live a happy and healthy life. Now they need your support.

Mia's amazing surgeon wasted no time acquiring what images could be obtained, consulting with other surgeons and doing the research to find any articles on successful surgeries. We learned most animals with this exact condition are euthanized in the U.S. He was able to find a case done in Italy on kittens who were born with no anus. With your help, Rescuers at Speak St. Louis paid a deposit and got the surgery done last Friday. Everything was disconnected and relocated to where things should be. However, Mia is still in the hospital, has had to be re-sutured twice and on around the clock pain management.

This evening, her rescuers learned the only way to possibly alleviate that pain is with a second immediate surgery to make another pathway. Rescuers know Mia will always be incontinent. Rescuers at Speak St. Louis made the decision to proceed with Mia’s care and surgeries and give her the chance to live a life full of love and pain free.

And for those wondering about her being a dog who is difficult to adopt, that describes many of their animals and has nothing to do with Mia's quality of life. We hope that day comes for Mia to find a forever home after her recovery. If you can give toward Mia's care or share her story, please do. Please more than ever, keep her in your prayers and send her all the positive thoughts you can! She will have a second surgery tomorrow.


UPDATE 3-2-18  We have our paws crossed today as Mia will be sedated once more for the surgeon to get a good examination of her incision to be certain it is holding and healing. If everything looks good, she will be able to leave the Emergency Vet and head to a medical foster home! It has a been a tough battle! She has been in the hospital three long weeks and had to endure a second surgery, a few more procedures to resuture her wound and a lot of heavy antibiotics and pain medications. Mia is a survivor! Yesterday, she was taken off the IV and all her medications are now given orally, another step to getting her home! Speak St. Louis Rescue still needs around a $1,000 more to cover her continued care. 

To help save Mia please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. They make a beautiful gifts and give knowing you helped save this poor baby!
