Prayer Brigade For Jaya

Our patient Jaya may look as fragile as a rose petal, but she is a brave little warrior. A virus has attacked her liver causing her to suffer from what is also known as Infectious Canine Hepatitis. Jaya rapidly developed ascites, or an accumulation of fluid in her abdomen that left her looking like a ballon that grew a head and a tail on both ends.

The Animal Doctor administered treatment, and thankfully reversed the rapid elevation of her SGPT values from 800 u/l down to 90. As Jaya completely lost her appetite, we are forced feeding her twice a day with a tuna and boiled rice ( processed smooth and "un-spittable" in a blender provided by Jaya's Mom).

Just when we thought the worst is over, Jaya's hemoglobin, hematocrit and red blood cells started to drop! A reticulocyte count determined that Jaya's body is still producing red blood cells so The Animal Doctor decided against blood tranfusion.

Right now Jaya is still under confinement and receiving treatment. The disease has scarred her eyes, but we are hoping the optical lesions would heal completely as Jaya's body heals.

Jaya's Mom never gave up on her, and this is enough to keep The Animal Doctor going.

Please join our Prayer Brigade for Jaya by dropping some positive thoughts via Comments or our Cbox. Your good wishes for Jaya's health will go a long way.

  3. Get well soon, Jaya! I hope you pull through and stay strong. My Sheero would be watching over you from Rainbow Bridge. My dog family (Shantee, Choknat, Harry, Coal, Patatats, Scout, Crunchie, Whitey, Tootie and old Spike) will be praying for you too.
