Meet Nori, 9 week old 3 lbs Maltipoo rescued from Los Angeles East Valley Shelter. Nori has a genetic defect called Atrasia Ani also called Rectovaginal Fistula.  Her rectum is closed.  There is an opening between her colon and vagina which releases her fecal matter thru her vagina.  Nori needs life saving surgery.  She must be 5 lbs.  Nori met with Dr Yonathon Buks, surgeon who specializes in this case at Access. 
Meet Kobe is a darling 7-8 year old 4 lbs Maltese with a lot of medical issues.  Kobe was rescued from Los Angeles East Valley Shelter with a large bladder stone.  He had to have emergency cystotomy surgery, with 2 small masses removed and his teeth scaled.  Kobe has an untreated ulcer that eventually needs to be repaired.  HE MUST BE ON A SPECIAL DIET OF LOW CALCIUM OXIATE.  
Meet Doodle Bear, 14 week old 20 lbs Golden Doodle puppy, rescued from Pasadena Humane Society.  His owner bought him from a breeder.  After a week, they brought him to the vet and found out that he has a severe heart condition. The shelter gave the puppy til the end of the day as they could not care for him.  Doodle Bear was taken to the cardiologist at VSEC which confirmed the puppy needed a PDA surgery.  The Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) surgery is $5000.  Doodle Bear is healthy and healing after his PDA Hear Surgery.
