Teddy, who is recovering from a slipped and bulging disc and is currently immobile in his rear legs, has developed a urinary blockage. This little man has our heart. He is one of the #operation458 pigs rescued from the over 500 pig hoarding case last year in Kentucky. He has been working so hard to regain his mobility and is so close, and now this set back. We will not give up on him!
Our vet checked him and performed a thorough exam and ultrasound. He is heading to the University of Tennessee for surgery to remove part of his urethra, and placement of a temporary catheter. He will be kept at UT for an unknown amount of time for his recovery. The good news is that, although his bladder is enlarged, it is not in immediate danger of rupturing. We are very worried and want to make sure he gets better immediately. We can’t stand that this little man is in pain. This will be a very expensive and time-consuming procedure and recovery.
We need your help. Teddy needs you!
