Portia will DIE unless she is immediately transported to a 24 hour Emergency Hospital
A plea was sent out late last night via social media to save a very sick pup. Rescue Dogs Rock wrote, “Portia will DIE unless she is immediately transported to a 24 hour Emergency Hospital for life saving emergency medical care right this minute.”
Portia was rushed to the ER last night. Here is what we know. Portia was abandoned at a high kill shelter in South Texas in grave medical condition. “It's life or death for her and this is happening right NOW!” stated volunteers. We have created these animal saving shirts and totes to help us raise the funds needed to care for her.
Portia has blood and mucous pouring out of her bottom at this very moment. Doctors suspect she has pyometra which is a deadly infection of the uterus and she will need emergency surgery today to survive.
Portia is emaciated and you see every rib. It is evident she has been completely neglected and abused for a very long time. Maybe even her entire life. We NEED YOUR HELP… She needs your help!
UPDATE: We have devastating News to Share. Sadly , Portia was not suffering from pyometra ( an infected uterus) like Rescue Dogs Rock thought but was riddled with cancer! When Portia was operated on today at Animal Medical Center of McAllen in McAllen Texas , the surgeon found one tumor the size of a grapefruit attached to her uterus and another tumor the size of an orange also attached to the uterus. The surgeon stated the uterus was actually split in half from tumors and the bleeding was from the cancer eating away at her uterus.
Additionally, there were multiple smaller tumors around the areas near the uterus and stomach area. Portia was riddled with cancer and the surgeon and medical team felt that she was suffering . So Rescue Dogs Rock let Portia go to the rainbow bridge. This was the right thing to do. At least she was surrounded by caring people and she died with dignity and NOT at a shelter. Rescue were shocked at this outcome and devastated beyond words. Fly high Sweet Portia , you will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace ❤
