A recent vet visit discovered that Bell’es gallbladder was at risk of rupturing causing sepsis and needed immediate removal. Her owner, unable to cover the complete cost of surgery and follow up care, contacted STARelief’s Aid-a-Pet Grant program for assistance. STARelief contributed $300.00 towards Belle’s surgery to keep her happy, healthy and home.
Belle’s gallbladder removal surgery was successfully performed at VCA in Norwalk CT. Belle is on her way to a full recovery. Best of luck to Belle and her owner.
Dear STARelief and Pet Assistance,
“Belle and I cannot thank you enough for your support and contribution toward her recent gallbladder removal surgery.
The good news is, she endured the surgery well. Liver biopsies and GB cultures were negative for any further infection or disease and the gallbladder was in tact. They said we had very little time left, so it was just in time, thankfully!”
With sincerest thanks, Belle
