Two weeks on oxygen

During Dillie’s first night in her Foster-to-Adopt home, she began breathing very heavily and couldn’t seem to catch her breath. All4Paws arranged for her to be seen at an emergency veterinarian. After running tests, they could not figure out what was causing Dillie’s breathing issue. That is, until they ran a CT scan. Dillie was a young pup who developed a bulla, which is a dilated air space, in her lung. This bulla left Dillie gasping for air, unable to properly fill her lungs. She spent two weeks on oxygen at Veterinary Specialty Care and recovered fully. She is now living in Virginia and working as a therapy dog for children with Autism.
