Leo F., an English Bulldog, is a spunky six year old big boy.
Leo was first diagnosed with radiolucent stones at Valley Veterinary Emergency and Referral Center, then came to Meadow Branch Animal Hospital in need of further care and a cystotomy.
Upon induction for surgery Leo developed hypoxia and was soon diagnosed with pneumonia. The procedure was halted immediately and he was prescribed medication to treat the pneumonia. Leo, after his antibiotic therapy, was then brought back to the clinic undergo examination and evaluate his readiness to proceed with the surgery.
Once cleared for surgery, Leo's stones were removed, and the he responded beautifully to anesthetic. Leo is healing nicely from his operation; like many dogs, he dislikes his medicine, but his mother has been taking excellent care of him.
