Gracie - Transjugular Coil Embolization Washington State University Veterinary Hospital - $5,000.00
Gracie is an emotional support dog for a baby that has Sturge-Weber Syndrome. Gracie was less than a year old when she was diagnosed with a congenital liver shunt (abnormal blood vessel) which was misdirecting blood flow through the liver and keeping the liver from fully functioning. The coil embolization slowly closes off the aberrant vessel and redirects the blood flow appropriately. Gracie's family says she is recovering nicely from her surgery. Thank you to Amber's Grooming Salon, Pets Are People Too, and Zelda's Pet Grooming all of whom placed out donation jars and ask their customers if they wanted to donate to Gracie's surgery. Special thanks to all those customers that donated!
