This is "Bella". She is a 1 1/2 year old chihuahua mix.
Bella had a very scary experience that nearly ended her life.
She fell into a manure pit and was submerged for some time.
Her owner was able to pull her out, and gave her CPR after realizing
she was not breathing.
Fortunately, Bella took a breath and she was rushed to our clinic.
After a long (hot water therapy) bathe to get her temperature back up,
she was put on fluids. Bella still had difficulty breathing all day,
but with Dr. Bender's treatments and care, the next morning,
the little girl was on her way to recovery.
She was very glad to see her owner the next day!
Reports from home are that Bella has fully recovered!
