Pinsy, is a four-year-old Dachshund, that just wasn’t acting right; she was vomiting and her appetite was down, which meant a trip to her veterinarian was in order, sooner rather than later. A physical exam was performed, followed by x-rays that ultimately revealed a foreign body in her abdomen, which was causing a blockage.
Today, after surgery to remove the object, (which turned out to be a tampon!) along with two follow up surgeries, Pinsy is feeling much better and has made a full recovery. After such a scare it was with much joy that her parents were able to bring Pinsy home and see her enjoying life to the full again and back to her old self!
