Blankies are for snuggling only

Time was of the essence and we could not wait in order to save her life.

— Julietta —

Like all puppies, 1 year old Ginger loves to play! In fact, she got a little lost in playtime with her other family dog and began to eat a blanket instead of just play with it. Not realizing what had happened, her owner was distraught when she realized the blanket had been eaten and was now causing major problems for Ginger.

The owner Julietta described the situation best by sharing, “Ginger was playing tug-a-war with a blanket and our other dog. We then saw later on that day the blanket was ripped in the center. We then threw away the blanket. Two days later, we bathed her in the morning and she looked completely fine. Once it hit nighttime, we noticed she was 3 times her size in the abdomen. We took her right away to Monterey Peninsula Hospital.”

Being impacted with Covid-19, Julietta turned to Max’s Helping Paws for financial support for the emergency surgery needed for Ginger. Thankfully, Max’s Helping Paws was able to offer support for Ginger to get treatment, which might include surgery (but fortunately didn’t!) Ginger was able to come back home to Julietta safe and sound, healing well and hopefully remembering not to get quite so involved in playtime with her ‘brother’.
