Wally is now happy, playful, very loving and is like any other 3-year-old pug. He doesn't think he has any medical problems, so don't tell him. He adores playtime and attention, so a home with older children would be wonderful. He is not housebroken yet, and does have accidents with drainage sometimes because of the surgery. Due to his ability to make stones, he must remain on a special RX food called Hills U/D, as well as keeping a check on the PH Balance of his urine to make certain he is not making any more stones for the rest of his life. Wally cannot have ANY treat what-so-ever. He loves the treat called Hills U/D but it's the canned kind :)
Wally came to us via the emergency hospital needing emergency surgery because he would have died ASAP and his family could not afford it. Wally had a surgery called an urethrostomy where a new opening is permanently made in the urethra (avoiding the blocked area) so urine can now be passed. He also had a cystomy to remove the remaining stones in his bladder and surgery to fix his elongated palette. Wally is neutered, UTD on all rabies, micro-chipped, HW neg.
September 23 , 2012 UPDATE:
Wally got his check up and is doing well. His ph isn't stable yet however we have high hopes he will continue to improve on the u/d food. He is now off all medication and acts happy and healthy now. His vet suggests his new surgery site be kept shaved to make certain it stays clean and dry. So who ever adopts him needs to be aware of this. Wally is a very active boy and will need a very special home to live his life out. He is very hyper and loves to run and play a lot. He demands a lot of attention as well. So a home with a couple older kids would be best. Up to date on all vaccines, neutered, dental, heartworm negative on HW & Flea prevention and micro-chipped.
