OMG....Popcorn AKA Lulu has a liver shunt!

I'm so devestated! I can't stop crying. My precious little puppy has a liver shunt. The vet just called with her bile acid results. He said the surgery is extremely dangerous for a 4.4 lb puppy. She hasn't gained an ounce in 3 1/2 weeks now and she is only 20 1/2 weeks old.
Please pray for my beautiful sweet baby.
Carole

I'm sorry to hear this, Carole. It must be heartbreaking. I don't really know anything about liver shunts, but you and Lulu are in my thoughts.

Oh Carole,
that truly sounds horrible. I'm of no big help, all I can do is pray for you two! But I'm sure other people on the forum can give you some good advice!!!
So sorry...

Wish you and Lulu all the best. Hope your vet is able to find a treatment that will make Lulu feel better soon.

Best, Poornima

Carole,
I am so sorry you have to go through this. I will certainly keep you and Lulu in my thoughts and prayers. I hope Linda sees this soon as she has been through this with Bella and may be able to offer some words of wisdom.
