In October 2018, this pooch named Cutie Pie got confined at the Scottsdale Veterinary Clinic. The veterinarians found some complications on the pooch after the dog got spayed. The same veterinarians noted that they revived the dog from being dead from their previous surgical procedure on the pooch.
However, even after bringing the dog back to life, Cutie Pie still suffered from multiple complications. This resulted in the dog’s coming back to the clinic to be treated again. The veterinarians worked hard to identify the dog’s illness so that they could address it accordingly.
The complications resulted in the dog’s continuous seizures. This scared the veterinarians because there could be something wrong in the dog’s brain. The vets were uncertain, but they are willing to explore possibilities to save the dog’s life.
This possibility includes putting the pooch inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. This is a rare procedure that is only available in selected animal clinics. According to the veterinarians, the chamber would help the dog control the seizures at the same time give the vets idea what is happening to the dog.
For about two days, the animal doctors observed the dog’s condition. After just five days, the dog had a full recovery. When the dog got released out of the chamber, Cutie Pie began walking normally again. Additionally, the pooch likewise began to enjoy playing the way she did before the treatment.
Dr. Bill Langhofer, one of the vets who looked after the pooch, said the chamber significantly improved the dog’s life. The doctor added that this new technology helped Cutie Pie’s brain to produce more oxygen, thus addressing the primary problem the dog was facing. According to Dr. Bill, the treatment would usually cost around $4,000. They, however, waived the fee for Cutie Pie since a reluctant donor paid for the dog’s medication.
