Pet of the Month – Oscar

Pet of the month -

Say hello to Oscar or should we call him Lucky. Oscar was recently seen at the Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin after being bit in the abdomen by a coyote. His owners rushed him to the clinic where x-rays showed some fluid in his abdomen. That coupled with his pale gums, prompted the doctors there to perform emergency abdominal surgery. Surgery revealed Oscar was bleeding internally and had a tear in his caudal vena cava, the largest vein in the abdomen. The surgeon was able to suture the tear in his vein and after several blood transfusions and a few days of hospitalization; Oscar was able to go home to his family. Oscar’s bravery and amazing story makes him this month’s Pet of the Month.

ACGLO is waiting for guidance from Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Veterinary Medical Association on how to do reopen our clinic to you safely. At this time, we remain in curbside care. Please watch our website for updates.
