OCT. 2, 2012:  Last week, our Miniature Schnauzer named Deana decided to eat many small rocks from our backyard. Noticing that Deana's health was declining at a rapid rate, we took her to an ER vet clinic on 10/1/12. She had to have emergency surgery to remove the rocks that night. Deana almost died during surgery because of how many rocks were in her, pressing on her organs. The surgeon said he never saw so many rocks come out of a dog Deana's size..

While the surgeon was able to remove all of the rocks (he said there were too many to count), she is still in critical condition during her recovery. Deana has been at the ER vet since 10/1/12. She will most likely need to stay at least another two nights. Shortly after her surgery, it was discovered that she has pneumonia. As of 10/3/12, Deana is STILL on oxygen because she can't breathe on her own. Thus far, Deana won't eat on her own either. The vet is very optimistic and says that Deana will make it through this but she is going to need a lot of medical care. The biggest concern right now is the fact that she still can't breathe on her own.

I hate to ask for help. I would much rather be organizing a fundraiser for a nonprofit animal rescue. Unfortunately, this is a major unexpected expense. We are still trying to land on our feet after moving out of state six months ago. It has been a challenge. The last thing my husband and I expected was something like this happening. We are so very worried about Deana and will do everything we can to make sure she will be OKAY. All of our animals are our kids.  

Deana is staying at West Vet Animal Emergency in Garden City, Idaho:  www.westvet.net. If you are able to help out, you can call them directly and donate towards Deana's vet bill:  208-375-1600. Deana's account is under my name: Shannon Benecke. OR you can give your donation through this website.  Any donation will help.  

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us with Deana's vet bills.  It won't be forgotten.
