What a sad day at Bonnie Blue Rescue.

Our sweet baby Katie crossed over Rainbow Bridge this morning at the emergency vet. Katie had a 6 inch rectal prolapse due to straining from her high worm load. Katie’s death would have been completely preventable if her former owners had bothered to worm her at any point during the last 8 weeks before they dumped her at the shelter to die; unfortunately the deworming, fluids, metronidazole and veterinary treatment as soon as she was rescued this week was too late.

The 6 inches of the rectal prolapse included the colon and sphincter. The ER vet did not think that Katie would have had control over her bowels even if she could have survived the surgery and infection. The vet had never seen a rectal prolapse this bad in a puppy before; her recommendation was to have Katie humanely euthanized.

Our hearts are broken for this little baby, but we are so thankful that she got to spend a few days in a foster home knowing love and being adored.

Please join us in sending good vibes and prayers for her foster family who have very heavy hearts today.

Rest in peace, sweet girl.

    I am so sorry this little one could not be saved. I know how much each and every one of your charges means to you. You did the best and most that you could and I’m sure little Katie felt that. The best part of it all is that little Katie isn’t suffering anymore — she has become one of your angels. RIP, Katie — and peace of heart to those who helped you on your journey. xo

    I read this with tears in my eyes. I am so sorry to hear about this beautiful little puppy’s death, one that could’ve been prevented. I wish there was more that could be done to the previous owners and I am just so grateful Katie did know love the last part of her little life. GOD bless her foster family and may you have peace knowing you did so much for her!
