Mickey was referred by Dr Merker to see a specialist surgeon, who specializes in gastro/ para esophageal hitias hernia. ( A very rare condition in dogs) In Mickeys case Where half of mickeys stomach slipped through the hole of his diaphragm and half of mickeys stomach is now on the other side of his diaphragm. This causes pressure on his other organs and his lungs. And can cause possible serious fatal complications. He also has esophageal damage from burning acid, that is caused by this condition. Mickey was seen and evaluated yesterday by Dr Benett, The chief surgeon in soft tissue surgery, and his team of associates. Dr benett and his team reviewed and examined the x rays and test results for Mickey, from Dr Merker at the Whitestone animal hospital. And they very carefully examined and evaluated Mickey. Mickey's surgery that is required is very extensive with a lot of risks and serious complications. As Mickey's condition is very rare in dogs. The surgery not only involves pulling his stomach back through the hole in his diaphragm and sealing the hole. but also involves the stapling and or stitching party of his stomach onto the abdominal wall and this only adds to the risk of serious complications. So before surgery, Dr Benett would like to try a three week trial of medications and treatments to see if there is any way Mickey has some improvement. And if there if is any possible way that this can be treated as a chronic illness with medications and treatments. If there is no improvement in the 3 weeks after treatments and medication and more testing. Mickey will be scheduled for surgery as soon as possible. These treatments and medications and tests for Mickey are extremely expensive. We are asking people to please donate to help save Mickey's life, even the smallest amount will help with Mickeys medical expenses.

Sincerely, Mickey & family
