a little about me


Fiona had her surgery on Monday and was discharged from the hospital today. She is doing very well but not happy with her restrictions! 🙂 She is feeling great and wants to run, but she needs to rest for now. We are, of course happy that she is doing so well!
Thank you so much for all of your donations, well wishes and prayers.

11/23/2020 – Fiona’s surgery today went well. Please keep her in your thoughts for a speedy recovery.

11/16/2020 – Fiona is a precious 4 month old puppy who was surrendered to Yorkie Haven Rescue on 11/5/2020 with symptoms of a possible liver shunt.

She spent 24 hours in the hospital and was discharged on 11/6/2020 with medications and instructions to be seen by Internal Med on 11/9/2020.

She woke up Monday, 11/9/2020 acting extremely neurological, including stumbling and falling over, head pressing, walking along walls, and she could not see or hear. She was admitted to the hospital that morning. After being stabilized, a CT Scan was done and, as suspected, she does have a portosystemic shunt (liver shunt) which is operable.
She was discharged from the hospital on 11/10/2020 and must be stabilized on medications for two weeks prior to surgery which is scheduled for 11/23/2020.

So far, her vet bills have totaled $2238.79 and estimate for surgical repair is $3000 – $4500. She does already have $1775 towards our goal of $6,000! That was through Facebook and our website donations. Donate at

We realize it is a lot to ask … 2020 has been a rough year for everyone and SO many of you have been so generous. We simply could not say no to Fiona and pray we will be able to raise the much needed funds for her surgery.

Please remember it is not the amount. We are thankful for any and all donations. Dollars add up!

11/6/2020 – Fiona came to us with symptoms of a possible liver shunt. She was head pressing, falling down and acting like she could not see or hear. She spent the last 24 hours in Emergency and her bile acid test did come back very elevated indicating a liver shunt. She has been discharged this evening with RX food and antibiotics, Lactulose and anti seizure meds. . She will be seen by IMED on Monday for further tests and referral for surgery.
