Project Description

Krispy is a very handsome 11 year old male Standard Poodle who visited Southpaws due to blood in his urine and quite a few stones in his bladder. On top of this, he also had a nodule on his spleen. Krispy not only underwent a bladder stone removal via a cystotomy (surgical incision into the bladder) but he also had a splenectomy (spleen removal) and he had a gastropexy. The gastropexy was performed to prevent the life threatening issue of GDV (gastric dilation and volvulus (rotation of the stomach)). Krispy was sent home after surgery and is doing really well.
