Chocolate is a little stray pup who has been brought to us by a kind Samaritan who found her on the street. We think that Chocolate has been hit by a car or possibly hit by a person. She was distressed when she arrived at the clinic so was quickly assessed by our team who discovered that she had a diaphragmatic hernia. This injury can be caused by a forceful blow.
Chocolate has had surgery to fix this hernia as her intestines and liver were compressing her lungs and heart. There was a danger that she would go into respiratory and metabolic failure and die. As well as this very serious trauma, Chocolate has two bad fractures to her leg. Dr. Pepe Stefan has assessed the fractures and used two plates to fix her tiny little leg. She is such a sweet little girl that we really want to give her a chance to have a happy, healthy life.
