Ivy is a young, 8-month-old female purebred Golden surrendered by her owner who was unable to afford her medical costs. Ivy was known to have ectopic ureters, which is a congenital anomaly of the urinary system causing urinary incontinence. This condition is known to be a hereditary problem in Golden Retrievers. She received her initial vetting and updated vaccines at Stetson Hills Animal Hospital. In June, she was evaluated by Animal Health Institute at Midwestern University and a cystoscopy and ablation procedure were done to fix her incontinence on the right ureter. In late July after episodes of vomiting, she was again evaluated at AHI with an ultrasound and renal chemistry was done. She was found to have some kidney disease from having urinary tract infections (UTIs) her whole life. In August, she suffered high temps and lethargy and was hospitalized again at AHI. In September, Ivy was evaluated at Animal Medical & Surgical Center and found to have inflammatory meningitis and empyema, which is a condition where pus and fluid from infected tissue collect in a body cavity.
