Tori is a pretty 9 yr old
Cane Corso who was diagnosed with Pyometra. She needs to have surgery asap!


Like so many others out there, Tori's owners were not aware of this disease.

Thanks to our amazing donors, who contribute to our General Emergency Fund, we were able to pledge $525 for Tori to have this life saving surgery. We couldn't do this without you!


Tori's family will be along shortly to tell you all about their special girl!


Remember, spayed females don't get Pyometra.
Spay and neuter - it's the right thing to do.

Hi everyone Im Stacey Toris sissy, and her mom Beverly will post shortly. We would like to first and foremost thank the wonderful doners that make this site possible. Especially those who are making it possible for us to have this life saving surgery done on our girl. Tori is so special to me she has been there through thick and thin, she even unknowingly it saved my life once. Tori loves everyone and is always happy to greet anyone who comes to the door with a toy in her mouth. She loves to romp and play with her toys especially a large stuffed dino lol. Tori has two toy boxes one with all her toys in it and the other with bones. She does have to share though cause of the rest of the gang!  Right now Tori is resting at home waiting for us to cook her dinner she will probably have burger again tonight since she won't eat doggy food, she is sooo spoiled with people foods. she even had french toast for breakfest this morning lol. she is scheduled for 8:30 am  on Monday for her surgery, as long as she remains stable. The vet said if there is any change in her condition that we are to call him  right away and he will do the suregery sooner, he has a 24/7 answering service which is great!
agian i will be poping in throughout the days ahead with updates, again thank you all for the wonderful things you do! Without IMOM i don't know what i would have done!

Hi Everyone, I am Tori's Mom. Beverly. Let me first say I am so greatful for the help you have given us so we can get Tori's surgery. I don't know what I would do without my beloved Tori. I bought her when she was only 5 days old and spent most of my time visiting her at the kennel. I brought her home when she turned 6 weeks old only because the breeder knew me well. She has been by my side ever since. She sleeps on my bed with me every night. Taking up half of it  and hogs the covers and my pillow. I don't mind because I love her very much.When I go to bed at night she will wait till I lay down and then lay her head on my chest and give me kisses. I will tell her I love her too and give her a kiss on her nose and then she will snuggle up and go to sleep.
Sometimes I think we are attached by a bungie cord because if I am gone out of the room more that a couple minutes she comes looking for me and will lay at my feet until I move again.
As of 10:00pm Tori if doing good. She ate a big piece of liver and 2 baked potatoes for dinner. and just had 2 hotdogs on buns for a snack. She will only eat people food so thats what she will get till she is better.
Again I want to thank IMOM for their generosity.You have a wonderful site and I am so glad we found you, otherwise my girl would not have had a chance.
  We will keep you posted about Tori.
Thanks again,
Beverly, Stacey and Tori

I am so glad that Tori is resting well and EATING even though it's people food...She's a big girl and needs to still eat while she waits for her surgery...

Stacey, you did a GREAT JOB getting everything set for Tori...I can see how strong your love is for your girl...

She only has a little while longer to wait...

Don't forget on Sunday night to stop all food and water so she's ready for her 8:30 am surgery on Monday morning...

Will be sending postiive thoughts and prayers that everything is as it should be for Monday...Judy

Hugs

Hi Stacey,

So happy to hear that Tori is doing better. I'm guessing because of Tori's age, it may take her a bit longer to heal up.

It's good that she is getting lots of rest. Hopefully she will be ready to start eating dog food soon. All that people food is going to spoil her
. :rolleyes:

Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery!

Hi everyone, My name is Tori and I want to thank IMOM again for helping me. A week ago I had my surgery and today I am doing great. My incision is healing well and it doesn't bother me at all. I am eating my dog food now and back to my old self. Mom still gives me bites of human food when I take my medicine otherwise I wouldn't take it woof woof. I have to go back to the vets on the 13 to get my stitches out and I'm not going to like that, but the vet is going to give me something to relax me so I will be a good girl and not try to fight or bite him. My mom is so happy that I am doing well, she even took her bed off the frame so I could get on it and sleep beside her like I always do. She really loves me alot to do that. My mom or sissy will keep you updated on my progress. Thank you IMOM, without you I would not be here now.

Tori...thank you for writing to IMOM and telling us how good you feel now!

You had a rough time of it and now you'll just be feeling better and better...

Your sissy and your Mom worked hard to make sure that you would be well again...they love you ALOT...and how sweet of your Mom to put her bed on the floor so you could sleep next to her...

Be a good girl and don't chew on your stitches...when you start feeling better they might begin to itch you..take care and keep getting better...Judy
