Many times in Camden, a resident will approach me to ask for help with their animal. The family at this house told me about their little Chihuahua that had a hernia and it was very very large. Of course, NJAFA took this poor little baby to the hospital immediately.
She had two inguinal hernias and an umbilical hernia. All three were the size of an orange hanging off her little body. The horn of her uterus and part of her intestine was in one of the hernias.
This little girl is thriving now and the family is now happy. NJAFA was there for another little animal in Camden that probably would not have survived had it not had surgery.
