Miss Dandy Update

Dandy was born with a birth defect called Atresia Ani where her colon did not connect to her anus properly. She then developed megacolon as well. Major surgery was her only option to offer her any chance at life. Many of you donated for her care and we are so grateful!
Dandy now can poop normally and is totally continant! Not only that, but her megacolon is reversing as well. This little lady is a dynamo on a huge mission. We are looking forward to all that she has to offer.
Special thank you to Dr. Palamara at Upstate Veterinary Specialies in Latham, NY. He is Dandy’s hero!

Dr. Schneider’s focus on preventative care and use of modalities such as acupuncture and laser therapy will serve our animals well, especially with so many elderly and special needs animals.
Her deep connection with the animals and her caring heart shows in everything she does.
