UPDATE: LETTER FROM THE VET

To Whom It May Concern,

Max has been struggling with complications from an injury where his pelvis was severely fractured. Though he is getting around well he is having difficulty completely voiding his bladder. His urine stream is also very weak and requires a lot of effort. He has had some imaging procedures done, and it has been determined that he has a stricture (narrowing) of the portion of his urethra that is located deep within his pelvis. It is unclear if this stricture is due to scarring down of the urethra or if it is due to scar tissue surrounding the urethra squeezing down on it.

Max needs a surgery where the surgeon goes deep into the pelvis and either releases scar tissue or cuts a small portion of the urethra out and sutures the urethra back together again. There is a good chance that this procedure will allow Max to pee normally again with comfort.

Sincerely,

Dr. Joe Fitzgerald
