Tiny Tim is a breeder surrender and came to us in the beginning of July. We were told that he was having significant constipation issues that the breeder was not able to get under control. The breeder decided to surrender Timmy as their veterinarian recommended euthanasia & she wanted someone to give him a second chance.
When Tiny Tim arrived it was very evident that he was suffering from significant constipation. We took him to the Animal Emergency Clinic of the Fraser Valley to seek medical attention. An x-ray revealed he had SEVERE constipation & mega colon. Timmy was treated with an enema & we sought a referral to a surgeon at a local specialty hospital.
Timmy was diagnosed with a condition called Atresia Ani. This is a congenital birth defect where the rectum/anus is too small to pass stool. Thankfully there are treatment options for this condition. Tiny Tim has had 2 rectal dilation procedures since he arrived to our care and we are happy to report he is now able to pass stool on his own! We are very hopeful that Timmys bowel movements will continue to get larger and hopefully in time he will be able to have a normal sized poop without the help of daily laxatives.
Tiny Tim will remain on medical hold until he has been cleared medically by our specialist at Boundary Bay Veterinary Specialty Hospital.
As one can imagine treatment for this condition is costly. Each dilation procedure for Tiny Tim costs $900-$1000. We are currently raising funds to help with Timmys ongoing medical expenses.
