Heidi Wagner - Dog with Dystonia Needed Emergency C-Section

16 posts in this topic

Yesterday, we received an emergency request to help Heidi Wagner, a sweet Australian Blue Heeler who had Dystonia and a stuck puppy and needed an emergency Caesarean section. The veterinarian did not know the condition of the remaining puppies, if any.

Thanks to all who contribute to the General Fund, IMOM was able to pledge $500.00 so that surgery could be performed immediately to save Heidi's life.

Heidi's owner was experiencing technical problems and has been unable to post an introduction or comments about his beloved dog. He should be along soon to tell us all about Heidi.

We cannot thank you all enough for making these donations possible. Without our General Fund, we couldn't continue to help these pets in dire emergencies and Heidi would no longer be with us.

To make a donation to IMOM's general fund to help the next pet in need who comes to us when there is no time to fundraise visit http://tinyurl.com/ag9dfyj

i rescued her and brought her back from death.without the help and support she would have died a second time due to her pelvis being previously broken,and there not enough room for the puppies to come out.i was not prepared,or knowledgeable of the risks i was about to face.when i was informed of my negelence,there was no way possible to afford the surgery.ihad no other alternative but to have her and the puppies put down.returning in the morning to say good bye i was informed of a god sent miracle and with the help of this organization,the staff,and doctors,a few hours later heidi received a c section.we lost the puppies,but heidi is recovering again.i am greatly thankfull for the help and support of this program.

Thank you so much for the updates and the news that Heidi is doing well. Often we do not hear about the outcome for any behind the scenes emergencies, so it's nice to hear a good outcome. I hope Heidi coninues to recover and gets back to her old self. :)

Yes, thank you. It's so nice to hear how Heidi is doing. And, thanks for posting this in another forum topic as well as a testimonial:

"my 2 year old heidi is australian healer,but only knows how to herd people.we bred her with a perfect mate,but when the time came to give birth, no puppies came out.we took her to manzanita animal hospital after they were closed and managed to get a Dr Anderson to come in on a emergency.he discovered they could not fit through the pelvis.she was scheduled for termination in the morning.after a night of dozens of websites,the staff at manzanita suggested imom,i allready contacted care credit and being denied,i gathered all the information needed and took the most painfull ride of my life,to put my heidi down.when i got there every personel in the office got on the fax machines, phones,internet.after three hours,heidi was in surgery,7dead puppies were removed and her life was saved.today she is recovering and doing well.the donation of 500dollars from imom is giving me a new look at life.the love care and kindness imom,office staff and Dr.Anderson contributed has been efforts i have never experienced in 52years.i would like to thank everyone involved and looking foward to get active.this place is great&eye opening.i hope i did this right and apologize if not.lol blaine"

I'm so glad to hear Heidi is doing well.

I am thrilled Heidi survived and even more thrilled that this beautiful dog that had been beaten and left for dead has now been spayed. She's borne enough pain in her short life and now deserves only TLC and carefree days.

Dr Anderson and staff sound like some pretty wonderful people, too.
